I love. I fight. I work and give it all I have. That is my life and I am happy. I chase dreams, win some battles and lose others. At the end of it all, I still have a story to tell, that of my beautiful life. So to all the fighters, it’s all worth it..
Today I woke up feeling like the weight of a thousand years was on my shoulders and the burden of a million hearts on mine, but I told myself to wake up the survivor in me(in case I had left her in bed). I am going to face the world like every moment is my chance to prove that im worth it, believing that “We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.” – Anais Nin.
A recent conversation with a friend led to the discussion about being the extraordinary woman who will turn any man who is in her life into someone who is way better than what he was when she met him. It got me thinking, not just about a man, a husband or boyfriend, but every relationship that surrounds me. I want to be the kind of woman who turns lemons in people’s lives into lemonade, that one person who can make them see beyond their situation. That person who believes in their dreams for them when they stop doing so. The one who gives them the push when life is pressing heavily on them. And for that man who is blessed enough to be in my life, I want to be the rock that will stand unshaken as far as dreams and storms are concerned.
This I write because I know the power that lies behind believing in people’s dreams, in standing by them always, in believing in them even when they themselves have stopped doing so. And this I write also because one day, when I stop believing in my dream, I am going to need someone to stand by me, believe for me, with me and remind me that I am that young and beautiful elegant innovator with the dream that will change my world.
Many a times we have been told that dreams come true, shove it under the drain!!! We go after our dreams, chase them with every lasting breath we have. Because at the end of the day, reaching them gives a meaning to our lives. gives us the drive, the energy, the zeal and passion to live each day with greater and more inspiring dreams. Dare to dream and dare to go after them, there is no fairy god mother to wind her magic wand, and fulfill our dreams for us…The elegant innovative African woman, is breaking every rule and chasing that dream.
