These Exausted Dreams

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!- Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967

Exhaustion is defined as the action or state of using something up or of being used up completely, or a state of extreme physical or mental fatigue. And let’s face it, no matter what we do in life, no matter how hard or how little we work, at some point we will all end up exhausted.

It has been said that you might as well do everything you can to follow your dreams, because because even if you fail, it’s much better to try to succeed at what you love, than to be stuck in and succeed at what you hate. And I think about this as this year comes to a close.

This has been a year of hard work and sacrifices and Doing things I was told I couldn’t do, that I wasn’t sure I could do, but did do anyway. It has been a year of beating the odds, forging my own trail on my own road, while being supported by the wonderful love of an amazing man, and Together building hour dris building our dream Of tomorrow.And it has quite honestly been exhausting then exhausting.

But these are exhausting times. And truth be told you can be just as exhausted doing what you hate as you can be doing what you love or building your dreams dreams. You can be just as exhausted and miserable Being stuck, or you can be exhausted by building a new life. You can be exhausted with unhappiness, or you can be exhausted by the hard work it takes to build a foundation upon which a happy life can be built.

Time is going to pass whether you are working hard towards your dream or working hard just to keep your head above water. And in this sense we all have to choose our hard. Because it’s all hard and it’s all exhausting.. Life was never promised to be easy. Indeed if we want something it usually takes a lot of hard work to get it. And that’s OK because then we value you whatever it was We were working toward when that goal comes to fruition.

So we shall let the reader answer this question for himself: who is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed?- Hunter S. Thompson

And this year it has all come to fruition.. All of the hopes, all of the dreams, all of the hard work, all of the frustration, all of the stress, all the Sacrifice, all of the everything. It has all come to fruition and it has all been worth It, as Tonight was the first of many small celebrations soon to come.

Yes tonight was champagne and Christmas trees and And pizza at a small table with the best seats in the house. Tonight was everything. And the best adventures are yet to come.

Life is short. And the truth is you can work just as hard being miserable as you can being happy. You can work just as hard to succeed at what you hate as you can to be happy with what you love. So work hard to accomplish your dreams and be happy with your life. Spend that time and that energy Making your life be the amazing story it was always meant to be.
