I'm living out my dream

Happy Friday!!

I was listening to this song by Taylor Swift called Mean and I wanted to share this music with you guys. If you haven't heard this song yet I would like to highly recommend for you to at least listen to it once. It'll give you a great smile or give you a great laugh thinking about all those people who were mean to you when you were trying to live out your dream.

I've had a big dream since I was really young and I had an opportunity to take control of it when I was 22. Since then I've been learning and living to accomplish my dreams. Some people thought I was crazy, out of my mind, and sometimes weird. A great speaker/ pastor name Mark Gorman said there are 3 things that'll try to take your dreams away from you. The first are the people who geniuely love you. They don't want to see you get hurt and go through struggles so they would rather you chose a easier path. So, we may have an outrageous dream but all they think might be exactly that, just plain outrageous. That's what happened to me when I told my parents my dreams and goals. They thought I was crazy and thought it would be better for me to pick a more common path. I believed in myself and had faith that my visions weren't solely just from me but some part of it was from God. That kept me strong throughout all my struggles. I had so much to learn and still do but through all the great friends and mentorship I was able to become a much stronger person inside and out.

This song caught my attention because she talks about this person who's just plain mean because they do and say whatever they can to hurt her. Then she talks about how that person will always stay just as a mean person and she's going to rise to the top. This can refer to many different people. You can be 5, 15, 21, or 50 years old. In any time of our life their may be a certain person or people who continue to hurt us or treat as if we're not good enough. If we're referring to us striving for our dream I would like to say continue to focus on your dreams because you'll achieve it and all those that laughed or hurt you will probably still be where they were when you make it to the top. Here's my favorite part of the song:

Well you can take me down,
With just one single blow.
But you don’t know, what you don’t know,

Someday, I’ll be living in a big old city,
And all you’re ever gonna be is mean.
Someday, I’ll be big enough so you can’t hit me,
And all you’re ever gonna be is mean.
Why you gotta be so mean?

These lyrics aren't necessarily for my parents but it spoke out to me and thought it may speak out to someone who's dealing with something similar. Also, sometimes the biggest meany in our lives is ourselves. There's that tiny voice telling ourselves that we're not good enough, we've failed before, who do you think you are, and many more. Sometimes we just need to tell ourselves to stop being mean to me.

I would just like to say to never give up on your dreams and don't ever let anyone else take your dream away from you. We won't be loved by everyone no matter what and I hope that's not your mission in life. If we want to do great things we can't be loved by everyone. I had to learn that the hard way. Let's just try to remeber that the only opinion that matters is from above.

P.S Please let me know one thing you would like to share with others who's living out their dreams. I would love to hear from you guys as well.

If you liked what you read please share with others.

  1. It's so ironic that the people that love us the most usually hurts us the most.
