Dream Big!

The Chronicles of Maladore

The Chron­i­cles of Mal­adore

I’ve heard it said many times in my life that the def­i­n­i­tion of insan­i­ty is to do the same thing and expect a dif­fer­ent result. If you’re any­thing like me you laughed a short cur­so­ry laugh and then went right along with doing the same thing while wish­ing for a dif­fer­ent result. Fun­ny how the dif­fer­ent result nev­er hap­pens to come along.

If you put in the ingre­di­ents for choco­late chip cook­ies you will end up with choco­late chip cook­ies not banana bread. I’ve wast­ed many years dream­ing of banana bread while get­ting choco­late chip cook­ies.

A day came in my life when I decid­ed I was going to actu­al­ly do some­thing dif­fer­ent! I was going to swim upstream and active­ly reach for my dream. I was going to do some­thing uncom­mon in a world of sta­tus quo.

I can’t remem­ber a time when I didn’t dream of being a pub­lished author of fic­tion nov­els. If you believe what the crit­ics say, that’s not an attain­able goal unless you’re real­ly good and even then, not so much. I am here to tell you that peo­ple can steal your dream if you let them.  I decid­ed I wouldn’t let them any­more! It was time for a change.

At this point, my hus­band and I have now writ­ten and pub­lished one book togeth­er and are fin­ish­ing up the sec­ond in The Chron­i­cles of Mal­adore series. It has meant late nights and set­ting aside the urge to just veg watch­ing TV or play­ing games on the android device. It has been a sac­ri­fice for us as well as our kids.

As I’m watch­ing this sec­ond book come togeth­er I’m not think­ing of all the sac­ri­fice. I’m think­ing of anoth­er dream come true. Why? Because we were will­ing to “Do” some­thing dif­fer­ent and make the sac­ri­fices to make it hap­pen.

I just want to encour­age every­one to not live your life by the def­i­n­i­tion of insan­i­ty. “Do” some­thing dif­fer­ent and dream big. Be will­ing to change how you spend your time to see your dream, what­ev­er it is, come true.

Come on peo­ple, let’s reach for the stars!
