Following your dreams – Part 2 (Sorta)

02 Feb

Behold, a New Me…

I have been fortunate enough to take some time from working and to return to school full time.  As I have discussed in previous posts, the act of me following my dreams has lead to me having some interesting, yet sometimes awkward conversations with my family and friends.  I have even had a family member say that they were joking when they called me a “deadbeat” now that I’m spending my time with my nose in a book and not working.  All of these interactions have led me to understand that I will never make everyone else happy, so why do I even continue to try? 

The Art of Not Giving a Fuck…

Recently, a friend of mine posted a link to an article called, “The Complete Guide to Not Giving a Fuck“.  As anti-following-your-dreams as that title may sound, it is actual a great article about not letting what people think keep you from doing what you want in life.  I have spent so much of my time on this Earth concerned about what others think about me.  Looking back, I realize how I basically imprisoned myself through limiting myself due solely to the expectations of others.  While reading this article, I found myself nodding my head.  There were a few points that made me think a little deeper and a little harder, but I found myself agreeing once I really did a tad more self reflection. 

So, is this where I sign up for the “Follow my Dreams” train?

If given the opportunity, would you follow your dreams?  I’m curious because I have had friends who have had the opportunity to do more with their lives, but simply didn’t because they didn’t seize an opportunity.  I suppose a more important question would be, are you following your dreams today?  Right now?  If not, what is keeping you from doing so?  Sometimes I feel as though saying that I’m “following my dreams” seems airy and fluffy and leaves others no choice but to roll their eyes at me.  But it is what I am doing.
