Not trying is failure to me. As it's said, nothing ventured, nothing gained. So why not venture into living your dream. Dreams are gifts--opportunities to use our mind, our talent, and our creativity to stretch ourselves beyond our self-imposed boundaries. So let's stop making excuses and get busy living our dreams. Because when we do, we'll have more pep in our step, more curve in our swerve . . . Ok, I know that didn't work, but you get my point. If you need a pep squad, get one. If you need someone who will hold you accountable for the things you say you want to do, find that person. Whatever you need to do to take the first step and beyond, it's time to do it. It took me getting ill and facing the possibility of death to start living my dreams. Your inspiration needn't be that extreme. So live your dreams now, why don't you . . . while there's still time.
