Chasing Daydreams

Sharing this as a reminder to never give up on your dreams!

Florida Girl Writes

All of us have a dream or vision of what we want to achieve or who we want to be. Before the kids and marriage, before the real world forces you to face the grueling truth of what it takes to live. Making that dream a vision and turning it into reality takes work.

Fortunately we’ve got a brand new writing prompt and sixteen random words just waiting to be turned into an entertaining story.   Our Friday sprints have inspired some fun entries and I’ll be doing my best to add…

Success: A State of Mind

Just love this post. The law of attraction is the subject that drives my latest work in progress.

Going after one’s dream is a difficult journey, taken by the brave. Filled with obstacles and naysayers, doubt will always surround your vision. It takes mental strength to persevere and stick with your passion. Fortunately, we are in the right place and time to make our goals happen.

“Success is a state of mind. If you want success, start thinking of yourself as a success.”

American psychologist Joyce Brothers 1927-2013.

When we were children and asked what we wanted to do when we grew up, we all had an answer. Even if it isn’t something that interests you now, you had a dream and a passion. As we grow and transition into adulthood, our dreams slowly get placed on the back burner while we take care of everyday priorities.
