Follow your dreams!

We all have them, want them and even need them. I’m talking about dreams! We have desires and passions in our lives that we want to come into fruition.

Maybe you want to move to a different state away from your family or perhaps you want to become a doctor. Well there are many reasons and passions that drive us to succeed more.

But there could be people and/or things that hinder or get in the way of that.

We have all experienced the kind words of our parents saying well your good at that but you should really go to college and have that be a hobby.

I have experienced that being a musician.

But now as I have practiced, played out and shown my family that music is truly the driving force and passion in my life.

Never let anybody in your life dictate your happiness. We all desires and passions in our life that bring us joy and happiness. But of course you have an unhealthy addiction that you consider your passion you need to take that into consideration

Please check out my YouTube video on following your dreams.
