Is it possible to achieve your dreams whilst juggling everything else?
In a world with responsibilities, family, work commitments and only a certain amount of hours in the day. There is not a lot of available energy and effort left at the end of that day to enable you to chase your personal dreams. Is it still possible to achieve those dreams or is it something that you will need to revisit in the future?
This is an excellent question, Anna. My personal experience is that if the people in your life love you they will understand your need to take a few hours a day or even a just a few hours a week to pursue your goals. We have to make time to be creative a priority. Make a dream reality.
People with "real" goals don't think like that. There are always undiscovered resources untapped. For example a person sleeps too much. Now if he cuts down his sleeping time he has a new resource in his hand with which he can do wonders. But that takes will power which people like me are too lazy to have and therefore end up agreeing with "There's not a lot of available energy and effort left". Only way of thinking differs!
I have a completely manic life; full time work, part time 2nd job, a 5 year old daughter, house to keep tidy, trying to lose weight and studying for my Masters degree. The study is part of trying to achieve my dream, though, and I took it on so I could get into teaching. I hope to be on a PGCE course by September, and have an interview shortly. I think if you are determined enough, you will always make time to achieve your goals and dreams.
Anna, there have been times in my life that others demanded my full attention. I had very little time for myself. Writing could not be my priority for many years. Although, I did try to sneak in a few works and kept them in a file to be brought to life at another time.
But, all thing change with the passage of time. As someone mentioned earlier,
you must set your priorities and be comfortable with your decision.
If you cannot make it happen at this point in your life, maybe it is meant that you should wait. Patience truly is a virtue. Good luck to you.
I think it depends on the person and what help they recieve. Are they good at time management? Would they need someone to help push them in the right direction? With help from others and devotion, I believe everyone can.
