I wanted to talk a little about dreams, achieving them versus letting them go. Reward or Regret?
As long as I can remember I have been a dreamer, I have had all sorts of dreams. My dreams mean happiness and fulfillment, and the satisfaction of not having any regrets. Some dreams come later in life, when the opportunities are aligned right with the stars. Execution and striving to never give up on the dream little or big is what its all about.
One of my life long dreams was to be a business owner! It took a lot of trials and tribulations, but I finally found my niche and passion. Miss Priss Cupcakes and Such has brought me so much fulfillment and happiness, a success I can pass on to my daughter! I jumped into the “trend” of cupcakes at the right time. Many ventures I tried were not meant to be or I lacked the determination at the time or it wasn’t a true passion. The point is I never gave up and I didn’t let outside voices sway what I thought was right. I truly am happy and blessed, the main thing I am happiest about is my daughter Madison’s verve for the business. She is talented and driven and carries the vision and passion as I do. The sky is the limit with us, we are positive believers and surround ourselves with people who love and believe in us.
Another one of my passions has always been writing. Writing down stories in my head onto paper, it is very therapeutic and helps me stay focused. It is an outlet so to speak, one that I relish. The world is a funny place, in my business I have had the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life, many interesting and kind people. I have been writing a screenplay, and one of my customers from the past seven years is a prominent executive producer who said he was looking forward to my final draft. I feel so lucky and that the stars are aligned for this other dream I have always held onto with both hands. Many times I thought to just let it go that it is too far fetched. The positive and driven person inside said, do not let your dreams go! Write it, present it, and see where the story takes you. If it doesn’t go anywhere, well at least I tried. No Regrets!
So no matter what your dreams are in life, if there is a will there is a way! Determination and drive to fulfill are what keep you going, I know that is true for me! No Dream is too Big, and you are never too old to go after them! Be kind, be honest, work hard and all will fall into place. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t, the main thing is that you tried. Now, go get your DREAM! Here are a few quotes of inspiration! Hugs, Karie
P.S. Leave me a comment about what your dream is, I am interested!
