Love – I found my love and I just married him.
[quote] We are the type to do things our own way. My family and those that know me expected us to run away and elope. We decided to throw a huge party instead. We decided to celebrate with our family and friends. We spent a year creating this event and basically got our PHD in wedding planning
Oh boy, I am so glad I’m getting married once. whew!
It was time and money that we’ll never get back. But It was COMPLETELY worth it and more. The experience was invaluable!
So many times through out the process, we looked at each other and were like
“What the Hell did we get our selves into? Why aren’t we just going to Vegas and doing this?”But we pushed on and I am so happy we did.
This got me thinking.
What drives people to dream? What makes it all worth it?
There are dreams that I always come back to. They are drivers of my life.
You can see right here on Yogirly.com that I am passionate about being passionate. I have been pursuing becoming a DJ for years for example.
I was a music performance major in college with an emphasis in Saxophone. At some point after shool I started to listen to EDM and techno. I had to figure out how they created that music. For years I researched and toyed with
different ways to learn and experiment. Until finally I found a school last year in Chicago. This was a 10 year process of dreaming and yearning just to learn, and here I am, finally starting classes and preparing to document my journey here at Yogirly.com
It was a dream I could not let go of. Even though I am no where near the expert DJ that I want to be, I am taking action, and taking action makes it feel like I am finally doing it.
Why didn’t I just let it go after all of the years not actually pursue it?
Because of my future self. One way I make decisions about what direction I need to move in involves the future me. I kept feeling the future me regretting NOT trying. It felt devastating. Sometimes it would wake me up in a cold sweat at night.
The future me screaming out “HOW COULD YOU NOT TRY?!”
Not having the too big Wedding with my husband was a future me scream.
Not being as physically strong and fit as I can personally be was a future me scream.
Not pursuing a freedom lifestyle where I control my everyday was a future me SCREAM!
