Dreams can be scary. Trust me, I know that and I am here to tell you that you need to face your fears head on and chase those dreams of yours!
I have multiple fears in my life ranging from birds (weird, I know) to ending up alone to disappointing my family but chasing my dreams is not a fear of mine.
I have always been the kind of person that is very impulsive and I have never really thought through a lot of my actions or decisions. If I want a new purse or a pair of shoes, I go on a spending spree. I want a new piercing, I go and get my nose pierced at 9pm. I want a new tattoo at 19, I get it and then spend hundreds of dollars to get it removed. I want to move out of my parents house, I get a job in Texas and move there 3 weeks later. I can honestly say that I don’t think things through fully until after I have already done the action. However, I am trying to better myself and fix that part of me.
One of those four impulses I outlined above, changed my life for the better and I am very glad that I didn’t fully think it through before acting on it. That one impulse that I am proud of, is moving halfway across the country for what I thought was my dream job. Moving to Texas in 2015 was one of the best decisions of my life. It forced me grow up and it forced me to become an actual “adult”and I thank God for that everyday. However, now that I am nearing 25, I am getting that impulse itch again. Let me explain though… hang with me here because it is for sure a crazy impulse that I plan on fully thinking through before acting upon it.
A week ago today, I got back from the beautiful island of Hawaii. I was there for a week for a family vacation with my family and another family that we have known for about 20 years.
For the most part, it was one of the best trips to that island that I have taken and I think that my family would agree with me on that statement. The area of the island that we went to was Kailua-Kona and we have a very special connection to Kona as a family. When my grandfather passed away we decided to take his ashes to his favorite place, Hawaii, and spread them in a ceremony that he would be proud of. Ever since that day, Kona has had a special place in my heart. Ever since that first trip, I dreamed of making Hawaii my home. Every trip that I have taken to Hawaii since then, that dream of mine turned into a goal.
Here comes that impulse decision I was telling you about up above… I have decided that if I don’t act on this dream turned goal of mine then I won’t know what it’s like to really chase my dreams. That is why I am looking into and researching and really honestly thinking of making this crazy dream of mine a reality. Hopefully I can make 25 as good as 23 was when I followed a dream of mine and moved to Texas.
