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!
