Challenging moments have the potential to completely transform any situation, and the decisions each of us make at those times define our lives. Right now I am putting everything on the line to follow my dreams. It’s exciting and terrifying all at the same time, and when I look back I want to be able to say I wasn’t afraid to step out on the ledge and really live life to the fullest. It’s not easy when you come to those pivotal moments in life; it takes motivation, courage, and vision to follow your dreams. Never limit yourself and always go after your dreams. Don’t let anyone or anything get in your way; it’s time to step out and do those things that are in your heart. Remember that when life is hard, it only makes us stronger. xoxo, Ilyse *This post was originally published on Ilyse’s website, IlyseBaker. For more from Ilyse visit www.ilysebaker.com.
