Wishing. Hoping. Dreaming. They’re all kinds of wonderful, but sometimes so much time is spent nurturing our precious ideas that we’re afraid to bring them to reality, at risk of losing the dream if we don’t succeed.
In the end, only you can decide what’s worth more – the value of maintaining the vision of what could be versus truly going for it. (And there’s no wrong answer here, by the way.) Just make sure it’s a conscious choice. Otherwise, you may end up years down the line with a heart full of dreams but days full of drudgery. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
