Daily Prompt: Pursue



I constantly forget my dream and instead I focus on the day-to-day items that I must get accomplished.  Work, pay bills, clean the house oh and I can’t forget to eat.

Somewhere between 2:30am and 9pm, I misplaced my dream.  The item I thought about as a child and just knew I would pursue it.  That is until I became an adult.  What happened during that dreaming mind and adulthood?  Life got so busy that I chose to not pursue my dreams anymore.  I seem to blame life…too busy, too tired, too whatever else I can think of.

Maybe the real reason is fear.  As a child you have no concept of fear or failure but as an adult all of that becomes reality.  The fear of judgement is so very strong.  Sometimes to strong to where it stops you dead in your tracks.  Then gradually you put those dreams in the back of your mind without even thinking that you are indeed doing it.  As an adult fear is crippling.

Maybe I need to try things that will get me back to that child mentality where fear didn’t exist.  Maybe then I can continue to pursue my dreams or am I doing that now by writing this down.  Maybe I am just tiptoeing in pursuing my dreams again.

I can hope and dream.

The older I get the more I realize I want to know more, to experience more and to learn. I crave knowing what I don't know. I want to grow as a positve person and be open to others thoughts and opinions. I don't want to lose who I am but I want to enhance who I am through this journey. I love reading, crafts and old cars and trucks. I swear I could look at antique cars and collector vehicles for hours and not get bored. Family thinks I'm crazy but they love me anyway:)

  1. You are doing the right thing of pursuing your dream’s. Fear is something when it takes over, it’s hard to break the grip of it. But you are doing the right thing by breaking it on your own terms.
