When I talk about Dancing with Fireflies, I want to share the notion that you can chase your dreams, no matter how big or how small. But you must move forward in order to chase that dream.
My dream was to become a writer. When I first began, I wasn't sure exactly what sort of writer I would become, I simply knew that I love to write, tell stories, and share my gift with others.
I tested out many different types of writing, from fiction, poems, essays, to finding my way to blogging and telling short stories. There have been so many moments that I have paused the music to examine exactly where I've wandered off to. But I find that I am always chasing my dream of being a writer.
I love the idea of no matter what your goal is, you must take the next steps every single day towards that goal. If you stop, if you doubt, if you turn back, you will NEVER reach that goal. Sometimes those steps are tiny baby steps, even steps that don't work out the way you might have thought. But there WILL be times when you are not only moving quickly, but you are moving easily towards your goal.
Today, put away your doubt. It's no good. Today, take some time to remember your dream and start taking steps in order to reach that dream.
I've been homeless, so broke that I was starving to death. But today, I've traveled around the world, I've reviewed restaurants and coffee shops in places that I once thought I could only dream of visiting. Chase your spark, chase your dreams!
No matter where you came from, you are capable of challenging yourself.
