Never let you or others stop your dreams

After watching one of Dhar Manns videos tonight it reminded me if something important. That important thing was that we should never let ourselves or others get in the way of our dreams.

Let me tell you a story.

As a child, even though I was undiagnosed dyslexic and autistic I was pretty good at acting and I loved to dance. I even managed to get myself into an agency. I auditioned and it worked, they toom me on.

But I had hang ups. I never thought I would be successful because of my looks and because I did badly in school. I had difficulty learning lines so it made me subconscious. 

I went to weekend drama school and I would shy away from parts  because I struggled with reading. Eventually the agency stopped sending me to auditions and I gave up. I thought there would be no place in the acting community for me.

Later when I was diagnosed as dyslexic I realised why I had problems but it was too late then. I knew it was just never going to.happen for me and that was that. People still to this day co.ent in my acting skills. It is the path not taken :(

I tell you this and ask that when people tell you you can't do something keep trying. Even when the person telling you that you can't is you, push harder. You will never regret something if you HAVE to stop but when it comes to the path you quit there will always be regrets :(.

I now am in a job that I love but I still wonder about the path not taken, but with my physical disabilities now it is the path I cant take :( I have my job now and I am determined not to make the same mistakes I made with acting. I am always pushing myself, even when I have a bad day. I keep on pushing, developing and learning. This time I WILL attain my goals.
