Get Up, Get Out, And do Something

I have an actual post for today but wanted you all to wake up to these inspirational words from Terrence J this morning. Everyone needs encouragement. Everyone including myself. Dream. And dream big. Be realistic, but aim high. Like all my amazing friends told me this morning, "YOU.GOT.THIS."

Today is a new day. A new opportunity to follow your dreams. Take advantage of this blessing. Take that leap. Whatever your dream is, you have to step towards it. The more steps you take the more the universe will conspire to assist you…

If you want to run a label, quit your job at the bank & intern at a label. If you want to be a doctor, apply to school today, etc. I wanted to act, so every week I go to acting school for 14 hours, study film & actors, read about projects, etc. Once I took steps, roles came.

A girl replied, how can I pay my bills if I quit my job to follow my dreams? – when following your dreams you will be temporarily inconvenienced. Tyler Perry was HOMELESS years before becoming a MILLIONAIRE. Only you can determine the amount of sacrifice your dreams are worth.

Before 106 I had a job making 30k but I wasnt happy. I quit. Moved to NY, worked small jobs to get by, & lived on @FredWhit FLOOR 8 MONTHS! I just meet so many people that want to reach their goals & then complain when it sounds hard! Go watch Pursuit of Happiness

Everybody has a different story. U may have kids, mortgage, bills, etc. But God is powerful. There is always a way to follow your dreams!

Geez Abi, get out of my head...(but really don't!!!)

Thank you for this: "Everyone needs encouragement. Everyone including myself. Dream. And dream big. Be realistic, but aim high."

Like I've asked you before....Why can't I have you next to me always everyday?? I like you. No homo. You make me smile and I truly thank you for that. :)

But what if I don't know what my dreams are? What if I feel like I'm not good at anything and I have no idea what I want to do with my life? I don't mean to be a Debbie Downer, but I've been feeling like this for a long time. I feel lost. It's my 3rd year in college and I'm still unsure of what I want to do. But don't get me wrong, just cause I don't know what I want to do doesn't mean I'm going to give up. I'm trying hard not to give up and im trying to find myself and figure out what I want to do... But idk, sometimes it gets so frustrating... I really love your blog though. Very encouraging and it gives me hope.

anon 2 - ur not being a debbie downer. ur being human. it's ok. i've went through it. a friend of mine is STILL going through it and she's 26. and if it gives u any source of hope, i only recognized my dreams involved writing 2 years ago. up until then i had a completely different future planned. it's NEVER too late.
