A big reason people don’t chase their dream is that where they are now isn’t half bad.
They give up the dream and settle for the dreamsicle.
A dreamsicle is sweet and alluring and very tempting. It’s the option most people go for, with its safety, comfortability, and surface-level perks. Because of that, you wonder if you’re crazy to even consider abandoning it.
The dreamsicle is the lifestyle that ensures you need to keep your current job for as long as possible. It’s the boyfriend who checks all the boxes except for the one that matters most. It’s the job that impresses your parents but gives you Sunday Night Dread.
But it eventually it leaves an unsatisfying feeling in your stomach. Like maybe you shouldn’t have settled for something so easy.
Any time you break away from the crowd do something different is scary. The leap into unknown requires us to be the leader of our own destiny.
But nothing is ever as rewarding or satisfying as chasing the dream in our hearts.
The dreamsicle is not the same as the dream.
