I mean, how do you not look at this photo of Tim Curry as Dr. Frank N. Furter from Rocky Horror Picture Show and not get just a tid bit inspired to be a badass today?! Not only was his performance jaw dropping and beyond entertaining, but this funky, sexually charged film did not do well when first released. Now it is one of the most popular cult classics…of all time. Talk about turning a dream into a reality.
Here’s my thought, you only live once you sexy bitches, so you might as well be what and who it is you dream of being. Which ultimately, is you. Dream, then dream a little bit bigger and chase after it. Now, this is coming from someone who is a professional day dreamer and creates digital art in my head, more stories I need to find time to write, more ways to help other people and families afflicted with Frontal Temperal Dementia, the list is a bit endless. I suppose it comes down to time. But I guess that’s why the saying “life is short” is so poignant and true. Gotta make the time and get it done. Be who it is who you dream to be in this lifetime. Make time for it, for you to grow into the person you truly are. I think many us have a side of us we hide or put away to keep up with the norms of society or even our families. What’s so fun about that? In the words of my seven year old niece, “that’s lame”. Hell yeah it is. So lame.
Perhaps with the transition of the season, allow it to inspire you to let your inner you shine a bit more. Go do something you’ve been dreaming of doing. Hate your job and dream of being something else? Get looking. Express yourself through your fashion, art, food, exercise, even social media. Make your own dreams your reality. There’s a ton of stuff I dream of doing, stuff I need to do, things I dream of being. For the most part I’m ecstatic with where I’m at and who I am in life. Some tweaks need to be made, but such is life. However, I can say that writing this blog has allowed me to truly express myself in a way I was too scared to do for a long time, so thank you for allowing me to do that and if you’ve gotten this far in today’s post, for reading what I write. And for those peeps out there who inspire other humans by not giving a shit about what anyone thinks and do their cool ass thing on a daily basis, keep on keepin’ on. It’s people like you who give the rest of us the courage to be ourselves. xo
Love it. Live it. Share it.
