Dare to Dream and Make it Happen!!

Good Morning!

As I was running around getting the kids ready for school, I was trying to figure out how to manage my time better as I listened to the radio. Boy did this song hit home! With every dream, there is a price. That price is what you are willing to give, be it time, sweat or tears, to achieve it.  "Dare to Dream" and then get out there and make it happen!!

Excerpt from Lyrics of the song: "How Bad Do You Want It" - Tim McGraw


People always ask me
"Son what does it take
To reach out and touch your dreams?"

To them I always say

Are you hungry?
Are you thirsty?
Is it a fire that burns you up inside?
How bad do you want it?
How bad do you need it?
Are you eating, sleeping, dreaming
With that one thing on your mind?


How bad do you want it?
How bad do you need it?
Cause if you want it all
You've got to lay it all out on the line


I get to make my living
Doing what I love
Every night I give my heart and soul
Sometimes that ain't enough
But brother, if you're like me
Looking down that road


Be careful of that wild wind, son
Sometimes it don't let go
Can you feel it?Can you taste it?
Can you hear it knocking at your door?


How bad do you want it?
How bad do you need it?
Are you eating, sleeping, dreaming
With that one thing on your mind?


How bad do you want it?
How bad do you need it?
Cause if you want it all
You've got to lay it all out on the line


There's always a price you pay no matter what you do
If you're gonna climb that mountain to the top
It always comes down to


How bad do you want it?
How bad do you need it?
Are you eating, sleeping, dreaming
With that one thing on your mind?


How bad do you want it?
How bad do you need it?
Cause if you want it all
You've got to lay it all out on the line



For me, the price is going to be getting up earlier or going to bed later and kicking procrastination in the pants whenever it shows its ugly head. Whatever it takes to get those words down on the paper, I must do. Can you say more caffeine! LOL  Just thought I'd share. :) Off to write now!

Melissa, thank you for this song.
Your writing is fabulous so I would say that you can reach your dream because we want to read more of your novels.

I adnire you so much because I know how full your life is and you handle things that come your way with such grace. I strive to find the kind of focus you've shown this past year and I have to say- I'm sadly lacking. Somehow, no matter how hard I try, something derails me from writing. Either life throws me something huge or the gremlins inside me keep me from doing what I want to do. Sigh...never ending struggle. Good for you- you've accomplished so much this year, you should be proud!! Thanks for the song.

Marie, Thank you so much! Your sweet comment has made my day! :)

Wow, Stacey! Coming from you that means alot. Not sure I'd call it focus though. Focus is something I struggle with on daily basis. LOL Now obsession, that might be more like it. ;) Thanks for your support and encouragement through it all! It means so much!!
