Living with a dream
Since we were all little kids we've been asked "what’s your dream job?" your mother always telling you "Dream Big"
As kids, our future aspirations seemed so possible. As we get older our dreams are put through the wringer as we allow laziness, letdowns, and the preconceived notion that we must attend college, obtain a degree and jump into a career squeeze the life out of them, as we succumb to being “realistic.” Christopher Hudspeth. Do you want to keep questioning what could be?
My mom tells me time flies. I am starting to see that. Over the last year Julia and I (Heartlyn Rae) have done a whole lot! We wouldn’t be where we are now, if it weren’t for Wendy Herst, Our mothers, friends and fans! It takes an army of people to make things happen. It sure as heck has NOT been easy, not one bit! It’s always nerve-racking to put yourself out there and hope for the best. Cross your fingers that your childhood dreams come true. You put everything you have into your dreams. Julia and I didn’t attended college just to purse our plan A, singing. We missed out on homecomings, proms, spring breaks and being a college kid. Do we regret it? Not one bit.
I write this blog today incase there comes a time that Julia or I ever feel like giving up on our dreams, that we’ve held for so long. I want us to look back at this blog and remember how far we’ve come. Singing anywhere and everywhere, whether it’s in front of 10 people or 10,000 people. Nothing is forever; we all need to appreciate what we have and how far we’ve come. I would love to meet the person that claims they know what’s going to happen tomorrow. I have a few questions for them. I don’t think anyone can predict the future. Anyways, I have a question to whoever is reading this blog…why aren’t you chasing your dreams?
