Protect Your Dream

On Saturday evening we watched “The Pursuit of Happyness”. After having written a week’s worth of posts about dream chasing, I got goosebumps as I heard Will Smith deliver these powerful words to his son in the movie, who also happens to be his son in real life:

Don’t ever let someone tell you, you can’t do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you got to protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. Period.

-The Pursuit of Happyness

Dream chasing isn’t just for children. They’re really good at dreaming because they aren’t constricted by what’s possible. They aren’t concerned with obstacles. They aren’t focusing on fear. They dream freely without limitations. It’s adults who step in with reason and doubt. Whether the obstacles are real or perceived, other people or yourself, I encourage you to tap into that childlike dreaming. Imagine every way possible to get around it because that’s how you find how you will. Don’t ever tell someone they can’t do something, especially not yourself.

Sending you lots of love and wishing you all that you need to chase your dreams.
