Can I Reach 20,000 by 5 pm EST?

There are moments in life that we find ourselves at a crossroad. The choices we make define us and build the foundation of our future. Lost and afraid, most of us would choose to remain firmly planted, a comfort zone where everything is predictable. Once in a while, some people push beyond the pain of sacrifice and going it alone. Somewhere beyond the quiet persistence of a dream lies the bravery and courage it takes. The bravery and courage needed to follow your dreams. And it's only when you're tested that you discover who you can be. The person you want to be does exist, somewhere on the other side of hard work, faith and belief; beyond heartache of failure and the fanfare of triumph.

Dazd acknowledges these sacrifices and commendable traits within my fellow bloggers. I would like each and every one of you to follow your dreams and hopefully live life happily thereafter. It's okay to let yourself be happy because you never know how fleeting that moment of happiness might be. I know this all too well. This blog has given me the bravery and courage to branch out into unknown territories with co-hosting several shows and starting a new show myself. I've also met new friends face-to-face that 3 years ago, I wouldn't have even dared to attend let alone plan such an event. It's because of your continued support that I've evolved into the person I am today.

Have you ever wondered if one life can really make an impact on the world or if the choices you make matter? I believe so...the proof is right here with my readers and blogger family.

Excellent post. I truly believe that, while not apparent to the whole world, what happens in the blogosphere does matter. Viewpoints are challenged and strengthened. Ideas are formulated and challenged. And understanding develops over time.

Great post! Thanks for sharing this.

Very good post, you just gave me a good dose of motivation. It is so difficult lately to be optimistic or enthusiastic, you chose the right words and I feel a little better. Thanks to Twisted Sister for directing me to this blog. (o_o')
