Lately I spent too much time editing Divided and then I spent too many hours thinking about Damaged, the sequel I’m currently writing. So a big chunk of my everyday ‘routine’ was about my books and my writing. As many of you know, it’s really hard to write a book and many times very emotional. So I had my ups and downs for a pretty long time.
Then I read somewhere a few funny words that I don’t seem to forget and I want to share with you the thoughts that were born in my mind. It was a picture and it said: One day we should fight: Dreamers and realists. Only we would have unicorns, elves and dragons. You’re fucked. (Sorry for the F word.)
I stared at those words far too long, realizing how true this is because I’m one of them. I am a Dreamer. I am one of those people who believe. Not in a greater power, not in miracles and magic, but I believe in greatness.
Each one of us has a different concept in mind about greatness, happiness and success. Some may want money, some love, some health, but whatever we want it may not be that hard to get, if we work for it.
Yeah, that’s the kind of dreamer I am. The one who believes that work, passion, determination and dream, can make miracles and magic. I believe that if we really love something and we work for it, there is nothing that can stand in our way. For as I have said again, dreams are masked possibilities.
I’m not saying it’s easy or painless, but I believe it can be done. Because the more we work, the more we evolve and learn. And what is life without knowledge? An empty, lonely road. And as much as we may enjoy loneliness now and then, we, people, are creatures of affection.
So, don’t be afraid, don’t be cowards despite the troubles and problems on your way. I try to be this way too and it’s an everyday battle. But it worth it. Not because I’m sure for a perfect outcome. No. Nothing is sure and nothing is given. But everything is possible. I like to live with that.
I think about this every time the downs decide to appear and trouble me, make my heart pound and my head ache.
Give it a try. It may work for you too. Just let me know.
And listen to this song. It fits. :)
