Follow Your Dreams

If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you dream it you can become it.

I have always been ambitious. From a young age, I have known what I wanted and would never settle for second best. You could say in this way I am a big dreamer but also luckily a big believer meaning I find it incredibly hard to give up. This quiet determination has pulled me through the ominous failures but also made the highlights even better. 

When thinking of following dreams its instantly thought of as a career path; with people following the natural progression of school through to university to get to to their dream  job but sometimes a dream is something more personal or that dream job isn't what you expected and the dream changes but we are on an ever-changing path that we keep following to reach the ultimate goal. But can we ever reach the ultimate dream as the dream will be forever growing bigger and bigger. But this is a whole other matter.

I have so many dreams, a family of my own, to have a cute little dog, a beautiful house in the perfect setting, and the ideal career to name a few. In many peoples cases, the dreams won't vary from what I have said but the minor details such as the type of house, the type of dog or type of career will make that dream individual and leads to people taking different paths. 

Now to draw on personal experiences I will use my career so far as I find its possibly the thing many people struggle to not give up on. Since I can remember I dreamed of jobs that were things I knew I would have to work for. First, it was a superstar (every little girl's ideal) then the first female Formula 1 driver (I know you wouldn't expect it) then an architect which I often confused with archaeologist (something very different) then finally something in the media industry, first a journalist, a publisher and editor, tv production then finally a radio presenter. All of these jobs in the media still appeal to me along with much more but I have worked my socks off with each of these to reach a place I am proud to be. Five years ago if you told me I would have a relatively successful blog, work for a radio station and much more work experience under my belt I would laugh. I have had unbelievable experiences specifically throughout the last year but it's not down to luck it's down to hard hard work. I have sent more emails to companies that I could possibly remember. 95% are ignored; 4% declined; and the lucky 1% which make it all worthwhile. 

What I am trying to say is... If you want something. Get it. Do things you love, do things that make you happy and no matter how many times you get declined, how many times you fail. Keep Going. It's worth it.

I have in no way reached my dream and like I said it will forever grow bigger and bigger.

But I'm going to keep trying and so are YOU!
