Dreams Into Reality


I say I am stronger than fear. Malala Yousafzai

I’m so frightened of change. I’m stuck, in a rut. I can’t breathe, it’s pulling me down. It hurts my soul. I know I’m destined for bigger things.
I feel like life has so many opportunities out there for me and I have a hundred different scenarios and ideas in my head, but I can’t seem to bring them to life. It appears I’m more of an idea’s person.
How do I bring my ideas into reality? My goals are to become an author, published. That’s what I want. But my busy schedule gets in the way, and I feel like my dream is just been pushed further and further away. I can feel it there, so close, yet it is so far away.
Do I reach out as far as I can and grab it with both hands and hold on to it for dear life? Is that what I have to do to make my dreams become reality?

  1. Jennifer, one this I can suggest, a simple and humble one, carry a notebook or any digital diary and jot down your ideas in sections of poetry and prose. then, at latter time, collate them and save it. Never let your ideas slip away. Keep writing and yes sometimes it may be demotivating, but you as a writer should not give up. Just for writing and your dream to be a published author you should continue to write. Sending you loads of best wishes.

    • Thanks Matt! Yes, I have to give it my all. You are right, I have to live it! No one else can do it for me!
      My laptop crashed last week, so ‘I’ve lost a few chapters which I didn’t save. So I’m in the process of starting these chapters again, unless I can recover the files from the old laptop. Fingers crossed I can! And then I plan to write at least a chapter a month, till I’m finished!!!!!

  2. Jennifer, you face the same things I do in this regard. I’m a father and a husband and a business owner. So a lot of times, I feel like my dreams have to take a backseat. I’m not really sure what the answer is here. I’d be lying to you if I told you I was happy about it…but the reality for me has been that I have to look at my writing as just something I do when I can. It hurts and I understand that. Hope you find some peace on this issue. All my best.

  3. So, I’ll give you a different perspective. I didn’t START writing until I was 50! I was just too busy with family and work..etc etc etc. Now I have 9 books and am working on a trilogy. Take a deep breath, relax. There’s no stopwatch. Keep creating, jot down your ideas, steal minutes to write, seek balance, and above all enjoy the process. Your writing is beautiful, so let go of the fear. It will happen, and I very much doubt you’ll have to wait until you’re 50. 🙂 ❤
