Chasing your dreams can be an exciting, terrifying, and insanely complicated task.
The toughest battle I had to fight was trusting myself. You can’t be persuaded by outside opinion, whether that be friends, family, or even your significant other. This is especially true in a creative field—because chances are they won’t get it but that’s OK. You know what you want to do, so just do it.
Everyday I had to tell myself that I can be successful, no matter what anyone thinks. And after I told myself that I worked hard through the obstacles I came across.
Now that I’ve finished school, I’m like: ” WOW I ACTUALLY DID THAT!”
Even though the process was HELL and there were days I felt like I couldn’t make it to the finish line, I just had to stick with it and trust myself.
Your dreams ARE possible.
Tell yourself you can.
