No one said it would be easy. No one said that everything would go smoothly and perfectly. No one said there wouldn’t be sacrifice or pain or long days and sleepless nights.
In fact most people said I was crazy.
And maybe I am. So what?
Maybe I think it’s worth the risk. In fact I FEEL it’s worth the risk. I feel in my core that something about this is worth every challenge, every risk, and every sleepless night.
I don’t expect most people around me to understand; to believe it; to agree. And quite honestly, I see most days that they don’t.
Yes, it’s upsetting and challenging and adds to the roller coaster of the whole thing, but I also understand it’s necessary. It’s part of what will make me stronger, make me a better planner and leader and dreamer. Make me better at taking the ideas I dream up in my head and turn them into a reality.
You may not understand it, but I do.
You may not see it that way, but I do.
But if we don’t believe in our own dreams, if we don’t believe that we have what it takes to make it happen, if we don’t believe that it’s worth it, then we’ll never be able to make it happen.
Linking up for Thinking Out Loud.
This is so beautifully written and so close to my heart right now. Thanks for sharing.

This post made me smile big time. Not because you’re having such a rough time with the unbelievers (sorry to hear it!!!), but because you’re so determined in making your dream a reality and seeing it through no matter what. You’re definitely right that it makes you stronger… And it makes for a super kick ass story in the end 😀
Kick ass story for sure!
Ugh, people! I wish we could all just be supportive of each other, instead of feeling the need to judge or have opinions about things we don’t understand. When I said I was quitting my job and moving to MN to start a new chapter in my life, I got a TON of underhanded/judgey comments, which really hurt. But I did what was best for me! This is going to be an awesome adventure and you seem so excited for it – go you!
Thanks for the support, girl!
You nailed this one. Follow your dreams. You just might inspire someone else to follow theirs, and what could be more satisfying than that?
