Most people struggle to start following a passion/dream/unlikely goal.
For some it’s a hobbling start and once they get going they pick up their stride and the rest flows smoothly.
But for others (and from what I have gathered, for many), it is less of a struggle and more of a petrified feeling inside them. One that usually stems from breaking out of the norm.
Society perpetually tells us that we shouldn’t be starting to follow passions or dreams or unlikely goals passed a certain age. It also tells us that security is more important than passion.
But when we find ourselves being pulled towards a passion, it is usually pretty strong, and usually feels more important than security or whatever social norm is banging on at us.
So we can end up pretty confused. We want deeply to following this sense of duty to our soul, yet we don’t want to seem ‘abnormal’ or silly to people. We don’t want the judgement or ridicule that usually comes with following a different path either.
So here’s my advice. Just give it a go. Have a try. Dip your foot in the waters of passion and see how you feel.
If you feel good, but still worry about external judgement, then keep going.
Because all those people who judge you? They are insignificant compared to what you will gain or lose if you follow or abandon your passions.
If someone is judging you then they aren’t worth your time. Seriously. Nuff said. They. Aren’t. Worth. Your. Precious. Passion. Following. Time.
So let them go.
Let it all go. All the judgement. All the criticism.
Let it all go — and just have a go. And keep having a go.
It’s the ONLY way for you to not have regrets.
Peace + love xxx
