    “To this day, I watch Cinderella and I am transported back to being 5 and striking my mind with beliefs – that good people always have the magical fairytale.”
    It feels good when I see people live in their childhood world. We tend to stop believing in ourselves as we grow up. And this attitude affects adversely. Like a child, we should always think that everything is possible and there is no one better than me who make this thing happen. No shame, I still watch Popeye. He has forearms bigger than biceps which is sort of unrealistic but appreciable. Fine. Keep working and live well.

    Thank you Emanuel for taking the time to comment. The fact that you are earning a living and doing what you love, means you are achieving far more than what people could dream of achieving.
    I don’t think anybody can do it. I think you need a lot of self discipline to be a PT and there many different routes you can go with it. You could even consider writing fitness articles which usually pay well. Ignore the people that use the term “dreamer” in a negative way! πŸ™‚

    A great post! I’m a dreamer but also a go-better! As I’ve gotten older I’ve not been afraid to reach for the stars and do what makes me happy! Xxxx

      Thank you! Happy that you loved reading it. The topic is close to my heart because I grew up very creative and ambitious and people were quite negative about it.
      There’s nothing wrong in being a realist, I hope you do focus on your goals though and that you reach them. xxx

    Definitely a dreamer, but I had the misfortune of not knowing what I wanted because I also craved stability, and thus pursued a more stable career. But, because I did, I felt unsuccessful, and it made me realize that I do want to pursue my dreams even if it’s a long and hard road. Thank you for the great post!

      I understand the need for stability and I took the unstable career path and it’s had many ups and downs. I hope you do feel successful and you pursue what you are after.
      Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts.

    Love reading this, really makes you think!
    I would consider myself somewhere in between a dreamer and a realist, I do have big dreams but I try to not dream too big which can be quite a negative thing!

    • lauzieslifestyle says

      Depending how you look at it, it can be quite positive. A mix of dreamer and realist means you can pursue what you want but also be practical. Sometimes I wish I was not so much a dreamer as I feel that can lead to disappointment.
      I always want my articles to make people think, so that’s a huge compliment! Thank you for reading sharing your opinion.

    I’m definitely a dreamer and I’ve always dealt with this. Even with my own father unfortunately. He always says that I must not want to work or do anything real with my life since I would rather work from home or because I would rather write than be a teacher, doctor or something. It’s discouraging and it hurts when you don’t know where you can get that full support for your dreams. Why should I feel forced or pressured to go to become a doctor if that’s not what I want to be. I have to be unhappy just to have a “good job/career?” It’s like if you want to focus on a dream you won’t amount to anything in life and you’re just lazy not wanting to work. Writing everyday for hours, blogging or doing anything creating can’t be considered real work? Smh. I don’t know what it is.

      It’s so annoying when people try to decide your capabilities and what you should be doing. When they say you should follow your dreams…they’re actually saying follow the dreams that these intellectual jobs offer. Not that I think writing isn’t an intelligent job, but it’s not the stereotypical lawyer/doctor/scientist etc.
      I’m definitely a dreamer as well. I always have people wanting me to just do something ‘regular’, but it’s not me.
      My life doesn’t hold as much meaning, if I am not pursuing what I love. Unfortunately for us, I think we have to find inner strength because others don’t see our view point. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. I am glad I am not the only one with this predicament.

        Exactly, I don’t see myself doing those type of jobs and I feel like I’m capable of something more, not that doctors and lawyers aren’t great jobs. Everyone has different talents and abilities. I think we’re both on the right path and finding our strength each day✨
