“Reach for the moon. Even if you miss you’ll land among the stars.”
Stars, Moons, and Dreams
I am a dream chaser – always have been – and I have yet to give up on them. Sometimes they change or a new dream presents itself, but I am always thinking of new goals and going after them like I did my drinking. I love that about me and hope I never lose that dreamer inside of me.
It can be easy sometimes to allow the circumstances of life to bring us down. To be bitter, angry, hurt, or scared. Sometimes there are no good reasons at all to feel these things, and sometimes we have valid reason to experience them. Regardless, we can’t give up on our dreams or give up on living a happy, joyous, and free life. The more positive and grateful I am for what I do have, the more opportunity I have to grow through those feelings and come out the other side with a genuine sense of true happiness. I know it can seem difficult to do when you are in it, but it is not impossible.
Life is a precious gift and I don’t want to waste it worrying about the things that I can’t control. I don’t want to live a life that’s dark and dreary. When I got sober so I could live the beautiful life I was always meant to live. I got sober so those dreams I had could come into light. And I got sober so I could really live life and not just survive or exist.
Just for today, I will not let the troubles of the world stop me from reaching for the moons, stars, and all of my dreams.
