Keep On Dreaming

 

Dreams are necessary. Without dreams, there would be no ambition to chase. No goal to reach. We would all be nothing without dreams. Not having dreams is like following an invisible shadow. It’s literally impossible. But we must know what we want to do and follow that ambition. I’ll tell you right now, it would be impossible to achieve something in life without goals, and for these goals, we need dreams.

Most people have dreams, I know I do, and even the most successful people have dreams and their dreams made them to what they are now. I think it is only by dreams that you will find your purpose in life. To get there, you must work hard and never lose interest in life. You will have to stay motivated and never give up. This is a huge ingredient to success.

Dreaming is an essential part of our life as I mentioned before, but even if it’s big dreams or small dreams, you can achieve it. For example, I love Apple products, I love the way it looks, not to mention its beautiful performance, but if you take a moment to realize how it all happened in terms of the creation of the company, you’d be surprised. Steve Jobs had a dream, and he worked very hard to make it come true. But you see, by doing so, he changed the way we look at modern day technology. Now Apple is one of the top technological companies in the world.

For me, dreaming is very important and is an essential part of my life. Sometimes I dream about random things, and sometimes I dream about my future, but I realized that dreams will only come true if you truly put your heart, mind, and soul into it. Not to mention motivation. Without motivation, there wouldn’t be any dream, and without no dream, there wouldn’t be a true purpose in your life.

What I’m trying to say is, if you have the proper mindset and if you have a goal in life, go for it, and do whatever you can to achieve it. Life is not easy, there will be obstacles along the way that will prevent you from reaching it, but know that these obstacles will only make you closer to realize your dreams, your purpose. So turn obstacles into opportunities.

You’d be surprised that by simply dreaming, you are one step closer to realizing your purpose in life because the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

How Life Changes In The Blink Of An Eye

Life is full of risks. There are those we can plan for and those that just happen, changing our lives forever in the blink of an eye.

Think about it, life can provide us goodness and opportunities, but it can also provide us misery and unhappiness. What I’m trying to say is, life is unpredictable and for that alone, it can lead to unexpected events. All this to say that my life has changed dramatically over the years.

Growing up, I always wanted to know my purpose in life. I remember asking my parents the question, “What is my purpose in life?” And their answer was, “It is not up to us to know your purpose in life, it is up to you and only you will know the answer to that.” But this has made me reflect deeply on the subject for a very long time until I finally knew my purpose life. Because you see, the best two days in your life is the day you were born and the day you knew why.

———–

Throughout my life, I have learned so much from my parents and I couldn’t be more grateful. If I can recall the most important thing my parents have taught me about life, is that life moves pretty fast. At first, I didn’t understand, I thought that I would remain forever young, but later on, I realized that it wasn’t true, and the next thing I knew was that I was no longer a youngster, but a teenager.

Growing up as a teenager, I remember asking myself these questions:

Will I be successful in life? Will I have a job? Will I be married? Will I have a family?

All great questions in which I’ve asked myself, and I’m sure many of you have asked these yourself, but is there an answer? For me right now, I don’t know the answer, I believe that only time will tell you. Over the years I’ve learned that one cannot be focused on the future but be focused on the present. Time has changed and will continue to change for as long as we live on this Earth.

So in the end, life is the greatest gift one could have, and because of that, you should appreciate every second that goes by. Like I said before, life can be unpredictable, things can go wrong and things can go right, and in most circumstances, you never know when or how it may happen, but regardless, find your happiness in today and not tomorrow. Live life to its fullest, and focus on the positive!

Life can change in the blink of an eye, so make the most of it.

A Big Thank You To My Fellow Viewers And Followers

I received a really nice email recently from a longtime fan:

I don’t know you and you don’t know me. But, I’ve been following your blog for a long time now – just wanted to congratulate you. I love what you do and you inspire me with every post! Keep it up! – Marilyn Gramms 

I’ve loved reading all your emails and notes of encouragement since I started my blog, and this is actually a fantastic example of why I decided to do it in the first place. Not for the appreciative comments, but because I value all of you who have taken an interest in what I do. My main goal is to inspire and educate you about our beautiful world and its reality, as well as what lies beyond our planet.

Over the months, I’ve been able to connect with a lot of you one on one via email, social media, and even on my blog, but I know there are still many of you who have been following my blog and have never interacted with me. So my commitment is to make my blog as interactive as possible, for your personal experience.

For my work, the most important thing that matters for me, personally, is if I can inspire and show you how wonderful and how precious life is. That’s why Living Life to Explore is my trademark, I believe we should all live our lives to explore our world’s wonders.

What’s also great about what I do is, I get to interact with you, my viewers, and having the opportunity in collaborating with other bloggers to create something fantastic and memorable for all of you.

Notes like Marilyn’s are a good reminder of the real people on the opposite side of my computer screen, too.

In the end, my blog wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for your constant support and love. It’s been a blast to connect with all of you who have been following my blog for a long time. Whether you’re new or if you’ve been following my blog for a long time, I’d love to hear from you.

Feel free to leave a question, comment or concern.

Stay tuned for my upcoming posts – New post coming out Tuesday, April 11th.


NOTE: I’ve recently updated my blogging schedule to every two days. There may be exceptions if I feel the need to do so.
