Pursuing your dream

I went to have a chit chat with one of my online friend who happens have self publishing her book. The book is a compile of her short stories and her very short stories.

Since she has shared a lot about the self publishing on her blog, I also asked her about her parents reaction. She is now in her last semester to become a dentist. Laughing, she said that her parents does not mind as long as she could finish her study. I told her hopefully she could do both in her life. Be a succesfull writer and a dentist as well.

From that conversation, we both agreed that if you have a dream to pursue you have to at least have friends who share the same passion with you. Otherwise, if you talk about your dream with people who has no imagination about it...then you probably have already guessed what kind reaction you are going to get...

"HEH? WHAT KIND OF DREAM IS THAT?"

"I SEE... WELL, AS LONG AS IT PRODUCE LOTS OF MONEY THEN I GUESS IS GOOD... OR IS IT?"

"DEAR, DEAR... WITH YOUR CAPABILITY NOW ARE YOU SURE YOU STILL WANT TO PURSUE YOUR DREAM?"

And there will be many more to come...

The downside thing is since your friends also sharing the same passion with you and is about to begin the same journey to reach the dream, then you probably have no idea what obstacles lie ahead. However, if you are listening too much about the obstacles and other not so promising stories it will probably blow your spirit away and you are going to have doubts whether you have choose the right path or otherwise.

Anyway, you are the one who is having a dream to be pursued. If you do not believe in your own dream, then what's the point of pursuing it?

Good luck to Vira Cla for keep on pursuing it with her first self publishing book through Nulis Buku under title : LAJANG JALANG

    In order to make our dream come true we must believe in it.
