We've all heard it before, right?
"If you can dream it, you can do it."
"All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them."
"If you never chase your dreams, you will never catch them."
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams."
And so on. These statements are intended to motivate you. To tell you to stay strong and not to give up. And I think that's wonderful. Sometimes we all need reminders that the road to achieving your dreams can be bumpy, but we need to stay the course.
But lately, those statements haven't been able to penetrate my "funk." What do you do when the road to achieving your dreams seems impossible to travel? What do you do when you feel discouraged? When you feel like you'll never get there?
At what point do you put your happiness, self-satisfaction, and mental health over financial and job security? Does being an adult mean that you should just give up on what you want to do? It just seems depressing.
I don't have any answers for you. I just wanted to stop by and share what's on my heart and also why I haven't been posting much. Haven't felt happy and creative lately. But I wanted to say to anyone else out there who is in the same boat - I know how you feel. And it sucks. But I'm here for you. Hit me up if you want to commiserate.
