This is a post where I talk to myself.
Maybe you’re the same as me now.
I am like totally listless, lethargic and lost. The triple Ls.
Sitting in front of my computer, wondering what to do next with this blog, while listening to U2 on YouTube.
It feels extremely frustrating. You just don’t know what to do next, or worse, you done what you’re supposed to do, but results aren’t showing.
And like me, you just wonder how the fuck the proven and successive people did it!
The problem with dreams, and how people see it
It’s not easy.
There I said it.
Because nobody fucking told you it was going to be THIS hard. No one is there to describe what hard work really means. People easily spout, “Don’t give up”, but they forgot to tell you that it feels like shit.
Everyone’s like, “Yeah yeah, follow your dreams” or “Live life to the fullest!” and all that.
But the dark side of dreams is rarely in the limelight.
This is Dream of the Endless, also known as Morpheus from the world of Sandman. He is not easy. He is complicated.
The gap is simply the distance between you and your dream.
I got huge ass dreams. I want to write and inspire. I want to make big bucks and start travelling the world to meet all sorts of amazing Bboys. I want to buy all sorts of shit for myself and my friends.
Now, go back to the top. Where am I?
I am still here. In front of the computer, and U2’s With or Without You is on repeat.
Big gap? For real.
The worst part is that, when you’re standing over the edge and looking at the gap, you can’t really see the end. What’s more, the gap is deep as shit and…
… you actually need to jump in.
And I say there are no excuses for dreams
Dreams are huge. They are your innermost desire and love.
So absolutely nothing can stand in the way.
In the gap you’ll find that it’s really scary. Pretty much no one is there to really guide you to help you get what you want in life.
In the gap you’ll fail, but that’s where you pick yourself up.
Pretty soon you’ll emerge a better you.
No more whining.
This is Hob Gadling, a friend of Dream’s. He cannot die and they meet up every century for drinks.
Now watch what he says below:
Dreams are to die for, and worth living for.
