15 Reasons to Follow Your Dreams Today
“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one”. John Lennon knows that all human beings are dream beings.
What is your greatest dream? Have you been postponing dreams in the past years?
Perhaps, you have reasons to do it.
That’s exactly what happened to me. Since I was young, I wanted to travel, to seek places, to meet strangers, to relish in the sights, sounds, and sensations of new surroundings. But fear stopped me and it has stopped me so much the dream felt so distant in some days.
It had to come to a point when I felt my life was an empty space and I was just breathing day in and day out for no meaning, no pursuit. I thought to myself, perhaps, I have to go back to what my heart truly beats for – to wander, to travel, to be enriched by it.
And so, I dared and took the leap. One day, I just felt I have to be doing what I love most – travelling. So, I decided to work as freelancer and become a digital nomad. It has been years now and I have been to many places and have met so many wonderful people. What I have learned from travel has given more education than what I have learned in school.
Slowly, the days became more beautiful, my soul was rising from the ashes and I have never been so happy and fulfilled. I feel most connected to others and to my very self. The scattered experiences and friends have completed my deeper appreciation for my own self.
