How many times have you had a dream grow in your head for a long time and then when you acquired the courage to speak it out loud... someone laughed at your dream? Many times this scoffing is unintentional, but belittling none-the-less. Close your ears to these people you ambitious soul, those reactions stem mostly from fear.
I am so grateful for vulnerability. It helps people realize we are all just spiritual beings engaging in a human experience.
