I don't often talk a lot to others about what it is I do or pursue. I like to keep things to myself and maybe one or two of my closest friends and loved ones. It's a safety blanket, and I've seen too many of my friends make promises to succeed at something and then cringe and feel bad for themselves when they don't achieve what they claimed they would.
I don't know which is worse.
To never make a statement about your dreams, or over state them. I myself have a vast amount of things I'd like to accomplish in my life. There are many things I want to do and achieve, levels of success I dream of reaching. I've learned something lately though.
I had beers with a friend last night, someone who was vaguely aware of one of my artistic pursuits. As I began to open up a little more about what I truly wanted (maybe I owe a thank you to the Phillips blue buck I was sipping) it turned out we had similar goals and it was mentioned that we should work together. So maybe I've been close to the right idea but hadn't perfected the execution.
I think I'm getting closer to something.
Share an idea, find likeminded individuals who dare to dream and create something. Anything. This world we live in, this age we're apart of is the perfect time to start. Anything is possible. Take a blank page and make it beautiful.
