Dear all Teens with Big Dreams... Start Now!
teenage life with trying to pursue your overall life dream at the same time.
Now some of you may think that you are too young to even start in what you want to like write, sing, or perform, but in truth we are all in the same playing field here no matter what age and all you need to do is just start!
Well how are we supposed to start? You may ask, "I don't have time to start!" That is called procrastination my friends. If you don't know what that word means I ave the link to dictionary dot com for you bright ones HERE.
I'm not going to doubt that as teens we all have extremely busy schedules but in t
hose down times you have in between when your just watching TV, going on Facebook for the next hour, doing stupid stuff on the internet, sleeping for more hours than you need on the weekend, you could actually be doing productive things! Surprise, surprise huh?
Here's another problem I bring to the table after all the volleyball practices, the musical rehearsals, the homework,the classes, and the amount of energy being spent on hanging out with friends, all you would want to do is just do exactly what I described as procrastination, do crap the whole day as you recover from all the teenage craziness.
I don't blame you, as teens procrastination is our thing we can't just not do it. We refuse to start things if we have reasonable excuses for them like "I don't have time between all my activities", or "I'm so dang tired I just need to rest!"
I just want you to know that all the things I'm describing right now I have also said and done myself MANY times before.
I guess what I'm really trying to say as teens we have so much potential to be doing other things also! It's difficult to follow our dreams and goals when our stereotypical teen- self gets in the way every time.
I'm asking you fellow teens with big dreams to trust yourself to start making your goals happen. Be proactive in the community you want to be a part of and NEVER be ashamed of what you really want to do.
If you want to write a blog? Go ahead, I'm right behind you and other thousands of bloggers who want you.
You want to make YouTube videos? Do it because I know you can believe in yourself to be stunningly amazing in front of a camera, I'll follow you man.
You want to be a singer or performer when you grow up? Let everyone else know your true talent and you'll never have stage fright again.
Start here at your age and start now. Even if it is a little intimidating at first I'll be right there with you. I know what it feels like to feel alone and embarrassed to be starting what you want to do but be aware there are so many more kids out there who are thinking the same thing too.
Be that leader who starts off a whole new movement of writing blogs, YouTube videos, dances, music, or anything else in your school and community! There is a fire inside you and you are just a spark waiting to happen. Light yourself on fire! (Haha, I'm funny...) Don't be afraid to be really good at what you want to do.
And remember I'm on the same boat as you. I'm right behind you and I believe all of us kids and teens can create something amazing. If not amazing then something life changing.
