What have I learned from my first attempt at living my dreams in NYC and briefly coming home to friends and family?….
It’s easier to Live Your Dreams Out Loud than to speak them out loud.
Speaking your dreams gives people the chance to cut them down and implant seeds of Doubt into your Vision.
I know why I left this place….Being here Drains my energy. I’m constantly surrounded by voices of Fear.
It’s takes all the strength I have just to stay inspired from day to day…
Is there anyone here that can lift me up??
There goes that anxious, restless feeling that tells me it’s time to go.
From now on, I’ll share even less about my journey.
I want my accomplishments to speak for themselves.
I’m thankful for the years I spent back home focusing on my spiritual growth, building positive mindsets, and letting go of emotional baggage.
As I thrive in this new environment, I know that the people and the circumstances around me cannot influence me unless I allow them to. I am the influencer and the Leader everywhere I go. That’s who I’m meant to be.
some days I feel strong
some days I’m tired of being the only one….
I got a few to count on
But I have to walk this path alone.
Seems like every time someone comes into my life I have to let them go.
I cant let anybody slow me down. I worked too hard just to get here.
I can’t let anybody slow me down. I conquered too much just to get here.
Even if I’m standing alone. I won’t let anyone pull me down.
My dreams have always been there to protect me, guide me, and push me to better.
Dreams give me visions of hope in the darkest places. My dreams are everything I can’t put in words.
At times, it drives me crazy that it’s only in my head. These visions are so strong, I can’t hold them inside any longer.
I’m ready to bring it to life.
With each day I know that this is the beginning of a new season. I can’t find peace in anything anymore. There’s only emptiness and brokenness left here. I try so hard to keep myself from sinking down into it every day. I’m fighting so hard to keep my dreams alive and I’m glad that I made it this far, but I don’t feel like I’m living my life yet.
I’m tired of just getting by, accepting whatever life hands me, finding the tiniest glimpses of happiness once in a rare blue moon.
I feel trapped and isolated and I’m tired of feeling like this. I have to be courageous and ambitious enough to build the life I dream of rather than accept the second rate life I’ve been given. The longer I’m here, the more bitter and resentful I become. It’s been 10 years.. I finally realize that staying here is holding me back from the life I could be living.
I just want to be happy, that’s the only thing I’ve ever really wanted.
Stop Believing that you are powerless and forced to accept a second rate life. You have the power to achieve any goal you set your mind to.
When your soul starts to feel weary, Remember it’s never been easy…And it never will be.
But you are a Spiritual Warrior. To get where you are, you had to fight for your Dreams, Your Identity, and your Sanity.
You must continue fighting for your Peace, for Your happiness, and for your Destiny.
Stay Alert and Keep a Sober Mind! Keep your 3rd eye open, There are snakes in the grass. Distractions are everywhere-Fatigue and stress will make you feel there is no hope. You must stay connected with your Spiritual Energy. Then you will know that it is possible to achieve all your Dreams.
I’m at the point where I’m frustrated with everything around me here…Everywhere I turn I’m surrounded by dead end jobs, everyone struggling to make ends meet, the same old situations never improving, limited opportunities, mediocrity..
For some, it’s easier to remain in misery than to work towards change.
For me, the pressure is enough to push me into success. I refuse to keep living like this, working two jobs just to pay bills and barely having the time for my Art.
I can’t accept this. We went to college and earned degrees. We deserve more than this. Staying here is Not an Option! Leaving is the only way to gain the career and life I deserve. I’m working, training, and counting the days until I can say goodbye to this place.
