Never Let it Go



March 28, 2012.

I wasn’t a girl with a self esteem issue. I wasn’t a girl with a boyfriend. I wasn’t a girl who failed clases. And I wasn’t a girl who did sports. I wasn’t a girl who played instruments. I wasn’t a girl with a tan. I wasn’t a girl who waxed her eyebrows. I wasn’t a girl who had a lot of friends though I knew everyone. I wasn’t a girl flit on by. But I was, I am a girl with a dream.

Everyone should have dreams. It gives them something to look forward to, it gives them something to work toward. It gives them a feeling of purpose and belonging. But it’s no easy task having a dream. Criticisms come, and some people can take them and some people most definitely can’t. People will tell you no. All the time, no, no, no, no. no, no, no. And that is probably the hardest part. People telling you no. You will hear ir from strangers, you will hear it from people you love, you will hear it from people who matter, and who will hear it from people who don’t matter whatsoever. But the most important thing to remember about dreams is not about achieving them, because sometimes dreams don’t come true, but you can never let the idea of dreams go. Whether dreams change or fall apart or come true it is of the utmost importance to hold onto some dream, a dream, the idea of a dream. Anything. Because with a dream and with a goal the true essence of people’s work ethic and their true wants and desires are revealed. Dreams reveal who we really are inside. Never let that go.
