"Do not lose hold of your dreams or aspirations. For if you do, you may still exist but you have ceased to live." --Henry David Thoreau

Wow. I read and re-read that quote this morning, and it really got me going.
Let me ask you something: what did you want to be when you were a child? 
Whether or not that was what you really want to do now--you should hold on to the dream that's kicking around quietly in the recesses of your soul. Think about that dream, revel in it and keep it top of mind. Write it down in the present tense and stick it on your bathroom mirror in the morning to contemplate as you're going about your day.
I've heard and subscribe to the Strangest Secret: You Become What You Think About. Well,'s about time you really start thinking about what you want to do with the rest of your life. 
That doesn't mean that if you're on your job now and it's not fulfilling that you just up and walk away--but keep that in mind. Thinking about what you really, really want down deep in your soul keeps that spark alive. It will drive you to do something about it. It can cause you to wake up earlier, or stay up later to put some hours into your dream.
Learn something about it, develop a skill, sit down with someone that's doing or has done what's burning inside of you.
Just get after it and do it. Because the truth is, it will never happen unless you're the one to initiate it...and there's not a high probability that someone else will come along and prod you to get it done.
I hope this message has reached you at the right time. Please comment if you'd like as I'd love to hear from you!
