I decided to watch the Oprah Winfrey Show today since it was showing her return to the first job she had as a news anchor, which was 36 years ago. It’s awesome to see how far she has come. Oprah, among many others, encourage me to chase after my dreams more and more everyday. I have this burning desire to succeed. To be better than I was yesterday. To make a difference in the world. To make a change.
I’ve been chasing after my dream of being a journalist for a long time. I’ve been blessed to see the fruits of my labor with every new opportunity set before me. I love having the opportunity to be able to share my gift with the world. I feel more closer to my dream everyday. Why? Because everyday I work to perfect my craft. Am I perfect? No I’m not, but I strive for perfection with every stroke of a pen I take. With every word I type, I am trying to find the perfection that is awaiting to be discovered. It’s such a joy to be able to do what I truly love.
As I sit here and watch Oprah I am inspired to keep my dream alive. To chase after what I desire, and to not settle for less. Oprah has competition. Who is it you ask? Ha! I thought you knew, it’s ME.
What is your dream? What do you desire? Go after it! Don’t give up, keep holding on. God has a purpose for your life and it is my prayer that you fulfill it. Work today to change tomorrow.
Don’t be afraid to face the world against all odds. Never give up on YOU! ©
