It's one thing to dream but it's another to pursue it.
I read through Michelle's journey as an entrepreneur this morning. She is a fashion designer and one of my favorite DIY blogger. In her post, she admitted the birth pains and lessons she is learning as she start her business. Let me give you some snippets of her post,
"A lot of times people who first find out what I’m up to say it’s really exciting to be able to do what I’m doing. And I fully agree and believe that – in no way have I regretted the path I’ve taken. But deep inside, I sometimes feel sad (and even embarrassed) that I can’t share this same initial bubbling excitement that I once had when I first started.
I love what I’m doing, but sometimes it does become a painful struggle. I guess I’ve pretty much grown into a seasoned relationship with this start-up business life. It’s no longer an initial courtship type of love that brings a glow in the face and overwhelming excitement with rose-tinted glasses, but more of a way of life that has grown to be part of me. Something that I know I can’t live without, but sometimes brings painful memories along with the joy." - Full story on Sharing My Journey at www.micheleng.com
Her story is very fitting to my thoughts today, which I posted on instagram earlier

It is something I'm going through right now. What I have been dreaming for years now is slowly unfolding before my eyes. I'm praying I'll have the same courage and passion as I did when I first had this dream... and the perseverance to see it through especially when I am undergoing "argh! moments". Haiz..
Happy weekend & keep on dreaming!
