2*4’s & Dreams

Does it take a 2*4 to the head, in the form of a major disappointment, to get me to take the risk?

It would seem to be so. I’ve talked about, dreamed about, planned about making a big dream a reality, only to back down and not follow-through many, many a time.

Now it’s taken a door of opportunity on another dream to open only to quickly slam in my face for me to realize there are very few things that I am interested in pursuing while forgoing my big dream and one of the biggest ones is not an option. I can’t make that one happen now. I’ve done all that I can, so it’s time to let it go (at least for the time being) and move onto the bigger dream, which coincidentally is also the one I have complete control over seeing through.

There have been a lot of barriers, but I’ve set my life up such that it can happen with minimal risk (relatively speaking), and now that the big life stressors are mostly out of the way (August 19th is fast approaching!) I think this major disappointment of late must be taken as a sign. I need to let it motivate me to stop chewing things over and just jump in with both feet! If only I could clearly visualize in my mind what that will look like!

For those who have been following, I suspect you’re thinking: Shut up and Do It already! Or stop talking about it at the very least.
