I haven’t done blogs in quite some time, so figured I really need to start back at it. First it helps me keep my focus, and second, it helps all of you understand what this Dream really is and means.
I put this HUGE disclaimer out there again, I am not a professional writer. English was the subject I least liked, taking time to read books was forced. Give me a car magazine, you might keep my attention, but my real love was outdoors, in the woods, fields and streams.
So yes, I named this blog the truth, it’s pretty telling I think. I was raised on the grounds of tell the truth, it hurts less than a lie. *(but for the record that is really hard to believe when the pain is there and real) Now with August upon us, and me on my knees trying to crawl past the pain, frustration, Struggles, and hardships, I want to write to regain the focus I had, it is SO very important that I get it back.
Steve Jobs nails it 11 seconds into the below video! Anyone that knows even part of me, knows that I walked away from my Job with a Fortune 500 company, one that paid the bills, and got me to where I am.
Working for them for over 16 years I learned a lot, and daily try to apply it. Now here’s where it gets real, I walked away from an empty feeling of I could do more. What I loved the most about my job, the people and the opportunities it provided me to do things for kids, and families in need.
Now we all have heard the saying “The grass is greener on the other side” I have a whole new perspective, it’s not the same green if you think of it in the sense of Money, Time, and Stress Relief!” I honestly think I need to go to the eye doctor, and make sure he consults with a shrink, to write me a better prescription.
I watched the video below, because yes I need some major advice!! It is full of wisdom, from people that have done exactly what I am doing, risking everything to believe in something! I know this pain, stress, trouble, is worth it, I know because its right in my heart and soul I just hope that the people that I would call my customers, believe the same. If they survived it, so can I!
The dream has changed quite a bit over the last 18 months. Some things are much clearer, others I can’t even see straight. I plan to start telling all in blog postings on the website, but here’s where I need your help! If you have made it to this point, you have for a reason. I need your input, words of encouragement, and most of all help sharing the story. Without them, this Dream will die, I am doing my best to live with courage, but every person breaks, I want to see this dream continue to come alive. It’s a living dream, be a part of it, and help shape the future of something AWESOME!
