The Journey

“The best way to make dreams come true is to wake up”, quote of Mae Jemison, M.D. (* 1956, American NASA scientific astronaut, first African American woman in space) By Robert W. Buss (1804-1875) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons

This poem is all about chasing your dreams and never giving up on them. So, if you have a personal goal, and you want to make it happen; then you need to keep yourself focused and stay determined; as you never know where it will lead you, unless you try.

Making your dreams come true is never an easy task, unless you are extremely lucky. You need to remember, that anything in life worth having, will always have its ups and downs, or its barriers and obstactles to put you off. Stay strong and keep fighting, for what you want!

As you progress along your exciting journey, you will meet geniune people; who will be more than happy to help you, and to give you their valued advice and support. But, on the negative side, you can also lose your way, through negative peoples’ opinions, who will go out of their way, to bring you down, distract you, or to mislead you from your proper course. Where it is fine to take on board positive criticism, as you can learn a lot, and you can expand your knowledge of the subject. Feedback should always be constructive and backed up with real evidence. Any other criticism should be completely ignored, as it will generally be false.

Finally, if after all your hard work, you find your efforts have lead you no where, then please don’t feel sad, or deflated by failure. At least you gave it your best shot, and you learned from the experience. Not all of your aspirations will be successful, but the beautiful thing about dreams is that they are endless! If one road to success doesn’t work out, then you can find another path, and move on with your life. So, happy dreaming and good luck!!!

The Journey by Paul Featherstone

I may have, a long way to travel,
And a steep hill, which to climb,
But as long, as I keep trying,
Then there will always be time!
As I progress, along my journey,
To find enlightenment on the way,
I’ll keep smiling and remember,
Rome wasn’t built, within a day.

So, I will never stop believing,
In the dreams, I hold so dear,
I’ll be strong and determined,
Leave behind all doubts and fear,
For I will battle on, regardless,
To reach the summit of my goal,
Driven on, by my sheer ambition,
As a fire burns, within my soul!

When we chase, our aspirations,
We can face, the great unknown,
But, there’s nothing to be scared of,
As life’s experiences, have shown,
If we didn’t have these challenges,
Then – How would we ever grow?
They define and build our character,
By what we learn and what we know!

Be true to yourself and be inspired,
As you continue, upon your quest,
Rejoice, in those around you,
The skills, you have been blessed,
For life – Is what you make it!
Just let, your imagination soar,
It is all part, of the journey,
There is so much, to explore!
