We are told that too many big ideas are bad, that it's better to just focus on getting really great at one thing. That works pretty good for most people but for someone who constantly has big ideas that is really hard. And I've struggled with feeling like I was doing it all wrong by chasing all the things that I felt passionate about because I was told that chasing every big dream of mine was unrealistic.
I happened to be a photographer who loves specializing in baby photography, one who loves documenting special moments for people, like when they say 'I do.' I also happen to be a photographer who loves creating tools for myself and other photographers, and one who is crazy about the business side of things and loves talking to others about their business struggles and help them develop a plan behind getting their business where they want it to be. I am a mom who decided she wanted both worlds of being a full time working stay at home mama and managed to build a million dollar business in the process. I decided that life is meant to be lived to the fullest and took a huge risk to move myself and my family to Maui so we can spend more time doing what we love. I also decided that I wanted to start homeschooling my daughter because I think education should be more than test prep and I'm doing fine doing all of these things at once. It's not always easy, but these are all dreams of mine that I decided to chase.
My point with all this is this; don't listen to those who tell you that you're dreaming too big when it's them who think too small. Chase the dreams that set your heart on fire, even when it doesn't make to anyone but you.
“The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry our their dream.”
