Chase your Dreams

Inside each of us, there is something that ignites passion in our hearts and creates purpose in our soul. It’s no easy task, admitting that what we covet is at odds with our current life. It seems unattainable and foreign. Utterly terrifying. That’s when you’ll know you’re onto something, for if dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough.

‘I have lots of things to prove to myself. One is that I can live my life fearlessly.’ – Oprah Winfrey.

Don’t hide in fear, grasp that force and channel it. Hold the big picture, your dream, clearly in your mind, without doubt and enjoy the sensations as you imagine yourself having already achieved your dreams.


‘Never be ashamed! There’s some who will hold it against you, but they are not worth bothering with.’ – J. K. Rowling.

Forget the people who mock your dreams; they won’t help you succeed. You need to surround yourself with motivators, encouragers and like-minded individuals to prosper.

‘You will never find time for anything. You must make it.’ –  Charles Buxton. M

Don’t fool yourself with the belief that you’ll have time for your dreams in the future-there’s never a better time than now. Magical thinking won’t procure your aspirations, you need to take action.  To work with commitment, towards your goals. Building knowledge, connections or funds. The road will be long and at times difficult. But true failure only comes when you’ve quit.

If you dream it, you can do it...


‘Remember to celebrate milestones as you prepare for the road ahead.’ – Nelson Mandela.

Equal importance should be given to each and every milestone. No matter how small. Don’t neglect or underestimate them. For each miniature victory is a step towards achieving your dreams.

Now go chase them!!!

  1. My dream since I was younger is to be able to write a book. I even have my outline put together, as I know exactly what the book is going to be about, but I still have yet to write my book. It scares me because I don’t want to write it and have people tell me it is horrible. It will be a book loosely based on a true story about my journey being diagnosed with MS. There is more involved, but that is part of it. Maybe someday my dream will work out for me!
    This was a fantastic post and I thank you for sharing!!!

    1. I totally understand what you mean. I wanted to write a memoir about my traumatic childhood but it’s too difficult. Instead I write fantasy-romance using some of my experiences as inspiration. Start by writing short pieces and go from their. Best of luck.

      1. Isn’t amazing how much a traumatic childhood can impact your life? Speaking from experience, my childhood was pretty intense and horrible. I know I could never write about all that because it is too hard and painful to remember. When and if I do get to write a book, it will be about being diagnosed with MS and what I went through. Thank you for sharing this!

  3. My dream unfolds in stages. I am within reach of completing my career, three years from this coming May, in successful style. In the meantime, my travels will take me back across to the East Coast (this summer), up to British Columbia and southeast Alaska (summer, 2019) and across Canada, from the Rockies to Newfoundland (summer, 2020). I also plan to write at least one book during this time period.

  4. Lorraine, thank you for sharing this inspirational post! 🙂 “There’s never a better time than now.” 💯💯 You’re absolutely right! I also like how Jayson DeMers puts it. He says: “Our dreams are often at odds with our realities, demanding freedoms and resources we may not have. But this doesn’t make them impossible to achieve.”

    Sometimes I look at my dreams and find them too many and too big but I want to fulfil them all. It’s fun chasing them because I learn a lot even when I fall
