The Dream Chaser - When Do You Stop?

Ecc 9:4 "Anyone who is among the living has hope- even a live dog is better off than a dead lion."

                                                                                                                                                                                                                Happy Sunday to all my readers, followers and subscribers. It has been a while since I have written and I do apologise. There have been a lot of new happenings and developments since the start of the year. Some planned and others spontaneous. However, I wanted to give a quick update as I felt I may have been letting my followers down. future when I take a hiatus, please understand that I am a very private person and when I am focused on a particular task, I do a disappearing act.

Now to the post. Chasing our dreams and when to give up. This ties into my update as some of you may know, I have moved from England and I am now living in the USA. Quite an eye opener and a very different culture, way of life, approach, outlook etc. In a nutshell, the only commonality between the USA and the UK is the language and even that has it's own differences!

I am excited about being in the US to pursue a life long ambition and all praises to The Creator, good things are happening. No more details will be given on that for now but I promise in time that will all be disclosed.
When I write here, it comes from the heart and I have to be motivated. My motivation today is due to a recent experience I encountered whilst here in the US. In truth, it made me want to pack my bags and head on back home, and hit myself over the head for being so stupid.

Then I remembered,

"there are no mistakes-only lessons"  
I have learned a lesson from a very big mistake which obviously was not a mistake just a very big lesson! 
Yesterday someone did me TERRIBLY wrong. Initially I was in shock! Almost like pinching myself if this was real. Did this really happen? To me? Smart as I am? lol.......But it did. It's not the first time I have entrusted individuals instead of listening to my gut instinct. I always had that problem. Be it friends, acquaintances, business partners, family, etc. 
I always undermined my instinct and always come out the one who got trodded upon.

The hard part in this however is that I have to stay true to who I am - A gentle soul with a gentle spirit. A soul that needs to learn to bark and bite. 
But I'm a fighter, always have been. Yes, you can knock me down but it better be a TKO. Why?

Because when I get up, believe me I am up.

So today I  nurse my wounds, take time to heal and come back out tomorrow. Bigger, Better and Badder......for the race is not for the 'swift' but for those who can 'endure' it.

Now for the question in the post 'When do you stop chasing your dream'?  My answer is: 

-When it becomes abundantly clear that it is unattainable. Until that time, what am I going to do? watch Pinky and The Brain don't you?
