We should never give up on dreaming. Why? Because without dreams what would life be like…if we have nothing to look forward too? Mine you now dreams are what gives you a purpose in life.
Sometimes we might fail the first time attempting to bright a dream to life and we just give up without even trying again.
Over the years I’ve dreamed about so many things that I wanted to do; for example, I wanted to become a doctor. Well that’s as far as I got with that dream. Circumstances and nobody to turn to for support, I gave up on that dream.
My next dream was to go into the military. Well I made the first step I went to an Air Force Recruitment Office took a series of tests and failed. Guess what I never tried again.
From that point on I was disheartened because there were so many obstacles and barriers blocking every little thing. So, I just went about finding my way in a world that was full of mean and hateful people.
I GAVE UP ON MY DREAMS TEMPORARILY
Luckily, I had the determination and new dreams to bring to life. Such as…becoming a wife and mother of no more than two children. Girls are what I wanted. Growing up the oldest in a family of ten kids…six of them hard-headed boys. I just made the decision I didn’t want any.
A funny thing happened, at 21 years old I got married. Twenty-two had my first daughter, them at twenty-four I had my second daughter. That was it…as life would have it I couldn’t deliver them naturally. See for reasons unknown I only dilated 4 centimeters with the first and 0 with the second after hours of being in labor.
Moving forward…I did accomplish my dream of going to college and becoming a supporter of this country. I got a degree in Business management and spend 25 years working for the Federal Government. It’s never too late, all you have to do is try and never give up!
