Chin Up Buttercup!
Everyone has a passion that fuels their dream. The only person to live that dream is you. Too often we have people that we allow to put our passion and dreams on hold simply because they are doubting or judging us. We cannot let these pot holes in life damage the progress we make to fulfill our dreams. If your dream means as much to you as you say it does, you will keep going, regardless of how many supporters you may or may not have. The reason you need to keep going is to do this for you, and you only.
Too often I hear of people who gave up on themselves because everyone else seems to have. That is not right! If you quit then you must not have wanted it bad enough! Even if you fail 100 times to 1 you still had the drive, determination, and passion to keep going! I am very adamant about this subject right now because of my competition year thus far. Two shows went horribly wrong and the third competition I was to compete in I almost dropped out due to everyone’s feedback. I stuck it out because I wanted to see what I was capable of. To my surprise and, even better, to my 8 show journey I finally received first place in my class!
This is not all about competing. This is about living the life that you choose and not letting anyone interfere with your passion. If you enjoy it, why not do it? Life is all about what we create for ourselves and not about settling or conforming to fit others’ standards. You only live your life happy and free if you do what makes you happy and you create some sort of ‘tunnel vision’ for those whose comments and opinions make you feel like stopping in your tracks. Live life as you choose!
