Sometimes it’s so hard to “let go,” but oh so necessary. People keep asking me why I do some of the things I do — (as if they don’t do things I wonder about). For instance, I’ve still got family treasures in storage — stuff from my days back in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area.
Why is that you ask? Well, I’ll tell you — it’s because there’s no room for my treasures in this dinky trailer I share in Haleburg with my ex-mother-in-law. Someday (when I’m rich and famous) I’m going to pull them from storage and surround myself with them just like Mary Kate did in The Quiet Man because I, too, have years of happiness and tears in those treasures and I want them!
Meanwhile I’m plugging along entering contests and getting my voice “out there” in my blog and in other ways, such as networking on Facebook and Twitter and posting on others blogs. The point is: I’m not giving up on pursuing my dreams, and neither should you!
A perfect example of what can happen if you persevere is Sean Kirkpatrick who recently got his “big break” by winning the Big Break Contest. Now what do you think would have happened if he’d got tired of struggling and given up? Jessica Gardner wrote an interesting article for Backstage Magazine about Sean’s struggles in the movie business. I’ve added a link if you would like to read it.
The point that I’m trying to make is: “Never give up! Never surrender!” as Galaxy Quest’s Captain Peter Quincy Taggart would say.
