Hello English Muse readers! Karen from A Simple Cup of Tea once again. This week I want to talk about dreams. Big, small, comfortable and incredibly scary and all those in between.
I’ve always been a girl with big dreams and an even bigger sense of direction and drive in my life. Somehow now that I’m coming to an age where those dreams are being set in motion they seem not only even bigger but also a lot scarier. There’s no more time for hiding behind: ‘when I’m older’ or ‘after I graduate’. The time to go for it and succeed is now. Or of course to fall on my face. It still could go either way.
Luckily J.K. Rowling is here with her nearly infinite wisdom to save the day:
And of course she’s right. Much better to say: ‘look, I went for it and it didn’t work’ instead of wishing all of your life that you had the guts to try it. Regret is not something I want to live with.
So go out and take that jump. Whether it be huge and completely life-overturning or small and seemingly not important (it will be, all change is in some way). Go for your thing, your dream, your life.
Have a lovely new week!
