Jennifer Blake: The monster under the bed.

The monster under the bed.

November 7, 2013

You, yes you. What are your big scary dreams and why are you not chasing them?

Why are you not taking your passion, fire and intensity to go after it?

What is the monster under the bed stopping you? What is the voice in your head telling you? Is it telling you that you are not good enough? That people won't care or won't like it? Is it telling you that you don't have the time for it? Is is telling you that life is busy enough so stop adding on more?

Whatever it is telling you, I am here to tell you the opposite. I am here to grab your face, pull it close and shake you to the bones with encouragement.

I am here to tell you to do it.

I am here to tell you to make it happen.

I am here to tell you that if you want something you need to go after it with your whole heart, because no one is going to make it happen for you.

I am here to tell you that those people in your life that tell you your dreams don't matter or that you are wasting your time, their opinion doesn't matter. The people who matter are the ones that are there to support you even if your dream seems silly to them.

I am here to tell you that this life is short and we need to grab hold of it with both hands and make the most of it.

I am here to tell you that the voice inside of your head is your fear, and fear gets you nowhere.

I am here to tell you that time is not an issue. If you want to make it happen carve out the time for it. That time you spend reading blogs or lounging in front of the TV, use it as a time to dream, plan, scheme, plot.

I am here to tell you that those monsters under your bed, they are also fear and you need to sweep them up and toss them outside.

I am here to tell you that YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH. YOU ARE PERFECT ENOUGH. YOU ARE BRAVE ENOUGH. And if there is a day that you don't feel that way, come find me, I will tell you a billion times over until you can feel it.

I am here to tell you that Taylor Swift said it right..."these walls that they put up to hold us back will fall down"

Let your walls fall down and chase those dreams.
