I Don’t Want To Live Someone Else’s Dream!

Far too often we seemed to become obsessed with the life of another human being. We become fascinated by what they do and who they may be associated with. It seems we will go to any length to somehow be attached to their life.

I was once guilty of this; going out of my way to seek out and track down best-selling authors. I wanted to be them. I wanted to live their life and associate with who they associated with. It became an obsession. I didn’t sleep. I kept on coming up with the next plan of how I would Wow! them or catch their attention.

Ultimately, all of my efforts fell flat on their face and I didn’t really become part of any new circles. I didn’t create any lasting friendships that would see me through the hard times. I wasted a lot of time and I wasted a lot of my feelings. I thought I would fit in with them and I thought their life would become my life. So wrong was I.

And at the end of the day I learned that I don’t want to live someone else’s dream. The only dreams I have are my dreams; the day-to-day activities that make me happy. Maybe today what I am doing is not the most extravagant but it is still my day and what I am doing today is important. It’s worthwhile. It means something.

Try not to get swept away in the dreams and ambitions of others. It often doesn’t amount to much.

It’d be great to hear from you,
