Don't ever let someone tell you....
Don't take it on ... people will tell no end of things, your job is to sift through it all and decide what is best for you...
If there is something in your life that you have always wanted to do - do it!
There are a surplus of reasons why you can't, but really, if this is your burning desire, it is necessary.
We need to follow our own star, do what we want, and need to do. These desires were implanted in you for a reason. You don't know what you are destined to accomplish. We are who we are, with the attributes, talents and capabilities, that are unique to us.
Our dreams, as well, are unique to us. If we don't push forward with the idea germinating within we may be depriving yourself and the world of something truly magnificent and special.
Don't listen to the 'Doubting Thomas' that are hell-bent on keeping you in line, or the ones that are pointing out the hazards in order to save you. Each of these people are working on their own agendas, and from their own fear. You are the one with the courage to go and do what you need to do. "You want something, go get it. Period."
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you imagined." Henry David Thoreau
