Chase Your Dreams!

Ryan Murphy created this quote on the show GLEE through the character of Jesse St James. “A dream is something that fills up the emptiness inside. The one thing that, you know if it came true, all of the hurt would go away”. This statement is true in so many ways! Think about your own life! What do you want to do in the future? Do you want to be a pop singer, or an actor? Or do you want to own your own business?  Maybe you just want to grow up and have your own family. Either way, if that dream comes true, you will feel as if    you are living in heaven because you will be so happy. My dream is to  be an actor. I want to perform in television or film, and be a very well-known and respected actor. My ultimate hope is to win an Academy Award for ‘Best Actress.” However, as long as I am acting, my dream will have come true. When I’m on stage or behind the camera filming, all of my worries go away and I just feel so happy. I am so content and feel like I am right where I am supposed to be. Dreams really do fill up the emptiness inside! I want to encourage each and every one of you to go out and reach for your dreams! They may be really hard dreams to conquer, or maybe they are simple, but go fight for them! It is your future and your happiness and do not let that slide away due to fear. I am from a small town in Alberta, and when I think of moving to the “big city” such as Los Angeles, sure I get nervous, but I know that it is necessary for me to conquer my dreams. So, I encourage you to say out loud what your dream is and make a vow to yourself that you will chase after it with passion and determination! No matter how hard it may be to reach it, even attempting it will help fill that emptiness inside! And don’t be afraid to dream big! Follow your passion, and be confident in yourself! It may be cheesy, but you truly can do anything you set your mind to!
