“Giving wings to your dreams means, waking up each morning with the intention of doing something in those 24 hours that brings you closer to making those dreams a reality,”
~Etta D. Richards
Reality television is growing in popularity, with no signs of slowing down because as soon as one show ends or loses its popularity, another one pops up to take its place. What’s giving them such a boost are the thousands of people who sit glued to their television sets indulging in the lives of others; rather than indulging in their own lives, pursuing their own dreams, setting their own records.
I’ve never seen the Osbournes, I’ve never seen Paris Hilton. I’d rather read than watch reality TV. I’d rather live life than watch somebody else living it. ~Al Jourgensen
Don’t get so caught up that you become satisfied with the lives of others and how things have worked out for them, that you abandon your own. Tell your story, unfold the fabric of your own lives, give breath to your own tale of survival. Everything you need to become what you dream about is already inside you. I have friends who say, “I’m not ready to share my life story, I don’t people know what I’ve been through. What will people think?” Well, news flash! Those reality stars are making money from what’s happening around them, some of it made up, some of it real, and they don’t care about what PEOPLE think as long as PEOPLE keep watching.
Change happens when you decide to take control, incredible change happens when you consume less and create more. Stop being brainwashed by reality tv, stop accepting the ideals of others as your own. You’ve got to clear a path, reduce the amount of time wasted each day in your indulgence, pursue the things that give wings to your ideas.
Can’t give up your favourite reality show? Fine! But just remember whose reality you’re following; someone else’s NOT your own.
~Have a Terrific Tuesday! 😉
