Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree. -Martin Luther
When I was a little girl I was scared of everything. After I had my first daughter, I realized I was capable of so much more than I thought. Not only did I push her out naturally, but I also successfully breastfed her for a year while working full time. The world became my oyster and that’s when I began to face my fears.
We develop dreams and goals to have things to aspire to. When we allow doubt to stop us from investing into our future we miss out on more than just our dreams, we miss out on all the lessons we would have received by starting them.
There’s always a chance your finished product will fall apart. There’s always a chance the world will not shift to receive it. No matter how hard you worked on it, it may not receive any recognition til you reach the grave. But there’s also a chance it could become everything you ever wanted it to. Or it could become everything to one person. Striving for your dreams is a risk worth taking.
Fear of the unknown is no excuse to avoid planting seeds for your dreams. We need your dreams as much as you need to strive towards them. Keep sowing seeds, keep watering them, and don’t forget to take the time to watch them grow.
