Can you dedicate your ENTIRE life to your dream?

You have to be willing to commit your entire life to your dream, to find it.

I watched a video from Casey Neistat. And he made some powerful points from that video.

So I wanted to talk about my goals and thoughts

When I think about that statement, it really makes you question what you are willing to dedicate your whole life to, even if you never achieve that dream. But if you commit your life to it, you will find it and know what it is

For me, the first thing that comes to mind is my kids. I want to dedicate my life to them. I suck at it but this is something I’m constantly working towards and will die trying to accomplish.

The second thing is being a creator.

For this year

I was determined to start a YouTube channel

I was determined to start making videos

I was determined to start doing photography

I was determined to be better in my 9 to 5 career

I was determined to do blog posts and

I was determined to start some type of organization for other moms.

And it’s extremely hard. There are times when I feel isolated there are times where I feel like I don’t know what I’m doing, where I feel like I am not good enough to even try, there have definitely been many many many times where I wanted to give up but I placed this challenge on myself to keep going and I’m pushing my craft.  If I fail then I fail. And what exactly is a failure, I can create and not make money, I can create and keep my job, what does it mean to fail. What would make me stop creating?

On the other hand, what does success feel like? Should I dedicate my life to success, should I not worry about it. Should I worry about it?

To be honest, I shouldn’t, I should be grateful, I should focus and put my energy into what makes me happy, I should focus on my purpose. I should take a breather and not put so much pressure on myself.

 

Update: I just finished talking with an amazing woman who does life coaching work. And I had the most intense session that I have ever had. we talked through things that I never thought about, that I need to start thinking about. And it literally stopped me in my tracks and made me question how I am feeling about the decisions I have made. I know now, that I’m on the right path because I am seeking help. I’m in the right place to find my passion.

So my ask of you is. Do you have any self-doubt about what you’re doing? If so, immediately find someone (I recommend, friends, support system, a professional), to talk those feelings out with. I would say why, but I am still figuring it out for myself.

I think I’m might have a session with her again.

Until Next Time
