Follow and Believe in your Dream

To succeed, we must first believe that we can
.- Michael Korda

How long do you keep following your dream? When is time to throw in the towel and walk away. And you to say to yourself, I'm going to get a real job and join everyone else to be a 9-5er. There is a many a day I have quit acting. It always lasts about a day or two. Because soon, I'm ready to look for acting work again, brush up on my monologues, go through my ross reports to see who I need recontact.

So back to my original question, how long do you follow your dream? If you need a rest or a break from your creative dream, I think that is a good thing. We all need a vacation now and then. If you give up on your dream, how will your life be afterward? Will you spend your time filled with regret, longing, bitterness? Hey, does that sound like people you know in your life already? A dream is not some wish that you make carelessly. A real dream is something that is part of your soul. If you quit your dream then in a way your denying a part of you.

I'm here to say don't give up. Whatever it is you want to do. There is a way to get there. Sometimes you find the way or the way finds you. I am striving to make my dreams manifest right along with you. The road can get hard sometimes, remember your not alone. One day, those dreams are to come true. We only have to believe!!

Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.- Edison

Yes! Believe and don't give up. You can walk away a bit and figure things out if you need space and a break but never give up trying to figure out your dreams. Beautiful Shell and I'm so glad that you're not giving up on your dream of being an actress too.
