To those waiting on a star
To wish upon one
For someone to acknowledge their efforts
For those laying down
Gazing up on the sky
Waiting for encouragement
For those toiling on and on, day through night
Making their dreams a reality, failing and standing back up
Working on their wishes, a step at a time
You finally achieved your dream.
For too long we fail to notice it, dependency on others to realize our full potential. We wait for acknowledgement, encouragement and a cheerleader to move on and chase our dreams.
We fail to realize that we are waiting on others to fight our battles.
We depend on people too much till we forget our end goal, our dream amd we are left chasing mere words.
Encouragement and acknowledgements are good. Very much well appreciated, but those that mean the most are those from within.
Why wait for someone to hype you up when you can be and ought to be your biggest cheerleader? Why wait for someone to encourage you to do what you must do to achieve it?
You want to get good grades? Why wait for someone to tell you to study? Wake up and do it yourself!
Want to be featured in NatGeo? Wake up at 3 am, climb that mountain and capture that sunrise. Enjoy the calmness once you’ve achieved the prefect picture, but for now you have to keep on climbing. Don’t get comfortable where you are, a lot of dreams end up unfulfilled because we got too cosy. Rest up, take a breathe, enjoy the view, but if you want to enjoy it all you have to keep on climbing. You can do it, I believe in you.
But if you still need SOMEBODY ELSE to help you achieve YOUR dream, well then, Dream On.
