You are not alone

“You’re not alone”

The road to your dreams is one fraught with untold fears and unknown dangers; A journey that requires you to bear the weight of your fate; It is a journey that can break the toughest of men, and crumble the sturdiest of egos. But it’s the best journey there is. And you’re not alone.

I’m a dreamer. My dream is to change the World. I dream of a more connected and more passionate World. These are dreams that I took upon myself. I’ve always known that they would be daunting tasks. But I never knew that they could get this tough.

Every single day, I found myself plagued with self-doubt and renewed knowledge on just how little I knew. The burden I bore upon my back threatens to snap me in two. And I feared that I’ll never be able to realize my dreams. I fear that I may break.

There there~

You are not alone.. You are never alone.

Just when I felt that I was really going under, when I felt like I was at my lowest point, I reached out to the people around me(And I’m so glad I did); I spoke to my family and friends on the various fears I had. Expecting nothing other than a chance to rant at first, I was surprised by the amount of support they showed! With their help, I managed to find the strength to stand again. It may have been just a few, simple words. But during those moments, these words became my pillars of light; they gave me support and they illuminated my situation. They guided me and helped me see again. I am no longer alone in this arduous journey. In fact, I wonder if I’ve ever been alone.

The bottom line is, I could never have done all I have (which still isn’t much… yet) without the support of the people around me. Be it family and friends.. even strangers! So the next time you feel down and low, talk to someone; share with them your troubles. Reach out to your peers and welcome them into your life.. You’ll be surprised at just how helpful and supportive people can be. Start today!

On that note, allow me to say a word of heartfelt thanks to my friends, Belinda, (@BelindaAng | http://belindaang.com/) for all the wonderful advice and support, Jason, (@Jayvig | http://jayvigmedia.com/) for introducing me to the social media scene, Deborah, (@DebDobson|http://itsjustmytake.wordpress.com/) for being such a kind and encouraging friend, Tommy, (@TommyTRC |http://tommytrc.com/) for your patience and last but not least, James, (@Jamesblute) for challenging me and guiding me along. Thank you. I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve all of you. =D

“Your journey is your own. But you don’t have to walk alone.”

    As Seal says – I need love to even know my name. It’s hard to lean on others but what you discover when you do…well thanks for reminding me of how beautiful it is to not only give, but to receive.
