[Dreams Come True]

Many people can dream but not many people will actually chase after their dreams. As a child, I always loved reading and watching fairytales because they all had a happy ending. Everyone found their soulmate, their calling in life, their perfect road to success but it's not all that easy in real life. Hard work is involved into making something of substance out of a figment of your imagination. Relationships take a lot of patience, humbling oneself, and realizing the bigger picture. You won't always understand each other, but if you care enough to try and push yourself to welcome this new person into your life, you will find that bit of sacrifice is worthwhile because you are making someone else happy, not just yourself, which has a very fulfilling feeling.

The second Disney theme of finding one's calling in life has always been a tough one for me to overcome simply because I was never one to "always know I wanted to do blank". This was a long and tireless journey. Changing my choice in college last minute, changing majors multiple times, changing jobs and never knowing what I was put on this earth to do. Even when I excelled at certain jobs, I never felt as though I belonged or it was what I see myself doing for the rest of my life. After starting The Ruby Element, I felt incredibly free. I was able to write about my life experiences, visit and attend such amazing places and events, meet the most inspiring people, and of course take amazing photos along the way. I would have never imagined this to even be a possibility and I feel truly blessed to know that if I work even harder, I can attain this dream job/career of being a fashion/lifestyle/travel blogger full time and hope to continue adding to those hyphens to keep TRE interesting for y'all and to broaden my own life experiences and develop as a human being.

This brings me to my last point in finding one's road to success. Success can be defined in many different ways. Are you happy? Are you wealthy? Are you famous? Are you making your parents proud? For whatever reason you're chasing after your dreams, I have to say, I hope it is something that ultimately inspires you to continue pushing yourself for the better because at the end of the day, you live with you and your decisions. Be proud of who you are and don't compromise your values for anything. You are the captain of your ship and you are in charge of whether or not your dreams will come true so make the decision today that you will put in the work to make your dreams a reality.
