Always Remember Your Dreams
Recently life has seemed to be getting the best of me. People seemed to disappear from my circle of friends, work seemed hopeless, and school just left me saying, ‘what’s the point?’ It felt as though giving up would just be so much easier.
I, like many other girls, couldn’t bring myself to turn off the tv when the movie ‘A Cinderella Story,’ starring Hillary Duff, started playing. Yes, I was drawn to the sappy story line of a not realistic romance and the complete turn around of a lowly diner girl into Princeton princess. I was only 11 years old when this movie came out and almost 9 years later at 20 I’ve realized the message hasn’t changed,
Life will always throw you a curveball or two, but as long as you don’t give up, you can always accomplish what you want. Or, as the movie had put it, “Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.”
I have forgotten that lately, but I have found even the smallest moments can have the biggest impact on your life. A silly movie reminded me that life is hard and not everything comes easy, but as long as I don’t lose sight of my dreams then I won’t stray so far from the path I set out for myself.
Being reminded that life will always work out as long as you’re willing to work for it made everything that appeared so boring and stressful just seem less important and shed that anxiety I felt. Life is what you make it and I’m finally taking back control.
Maybe we should all be reminded of our dreams every now and then.
