The Thrill of a Chase

So you have had a dream that you have chased for as long as you can remember: it gave you a reason to live, a reason to wake up and a reason to look forward to something each day, irrespective of how the other aspects of your life kept falling apart. And suddenly, overnight, you are so close to it, you are almost there and it’s no longer just a dream…

And it scares you: what if you woke up and discovered that it was just a dream, what if something goes wrong or the worst, what if turns out to be a disaster? Then, you would no longer have the one thing in your life which made you go on, you would no longer have a passion to work for and you would be a failure at something you really love…

For once, life is not about just existing, it’s about making a dream come true…

I dont know what you are thinking, but I am going nuts. And at this point, I am almost giving up...

Shucks, looks like it is what I think it is about. In the words of the Briscoe brothers - Man Up!!

How sexist... at least you could have modified it and said, Woman Up!! anyway, nothing has happened, and I am kinda scared to move forward...

There is an inherent fear of success somewhere within all of us as well. Most people worry that the more they succeed the worse the eventual fall. Friday morning philosophy! And yes, Woman Up !

@neil

it's NOT good... in fact it's the opposite of good. But I am at peace, and that's more imp.
