QOTW #8 Dreams


Good Monday darlings! How are you today? I hope you're full of energy and ready for a new week!

Today's post is special and scary for me... and you'll see why! I think today's quote speaks for itself, and it's so true! Think about how many times you've given up on your dreams because you failed in achieving something. And now, think about how many times you've given up on your dreams because you were scared or you kept doubting. I bet the second option will bring more memories to your mind; at least, that's what happens to me.

And it's so ridiculous! I keep encouraging people to follow their dreams and then I'm too scared to follow mine. Hypocritical, I know.

That's why I'm here today.

You know for sure that my biggest dream is to become a writer. But there is something else I really love to do, although I'm usually too scare to share it. And that's singing. I've had the experience to perform in a musical and it was just meant to be. When I'm on that stage singing it's like I'm where I belong. I don't think it's what I want to do for a living, I don't want it to be a full-time job, but I'd like it to be a bigger part of my life than it is right now.

I actually have a youtube account where I post videos of me singing, although I've only shared one of them with my friends and they don't know there are more. I have loads of videos and audios on my phone, but I never seem to be able to make them public. I've started to take singing lessons this year and I almost fainted on my concert (don't think there was a lot of public, 50 people maximum!)

This blog is my "safe spot", and I tell you guys so much about me I felt like I needed to share this huge part of me with you! It didn't make sense to leave it out of this, it was like me hiding a huge part of who I am... and if I can't share my music with you here I don't think I can do it anywhere!

I think you've realised where this is going... I've recorded an audio of me singing one of my favourite songs ever, Gravity by Sara Bareilles, and it would mean the world to me if you listened to it. The audio is not the best because it was recorded on my phone, and I couldn't hear the background track very well, but still...

So this is me, putting my doubts and fears away and jumping off the cliff. I can't spend my whole life being scared. My dreams will pass me by if I do. And I won't let that happen.

I hope you won't either!

I leave you with the song for now. I hope you enjoy it and I'll see you on Friday!



A big big hug!

PS: I was asked if I had twitter today, and I don't have a "blog twitter", do you think I should create an account?
