A couple months ago I tried to start a podcast... actually I did start a podcast! Except... I stopped. One day, I overheard a conversation I wasn't supposed to hear (Yes, I was slightly eavesdropping and nothing good comes from that btw! Don't do it!) And To make a long story short, someone I thought supported me disapproved and to make matters worse, didn't say it to my face or discuss it with me. But here's the thing -- they're not the bad guy, and DO NOT feel sorry for me. Because I felt sorry for me and let one person run the show. I let the fears and opinions of others keep me from doing what I believe God called me to do. Granted, I don't think I launched the podcast at the proper time, but I do think I was being obedient. But I stopped because two people thought I should. I had the support of so many people, but those two voices (probably more, lol) were louder than the rest, so I stopped!
One thing I think we can all learn from this movie is to yes, chase your dreams, and to dream BIG. But I think another important lesson we can get from this movie is the importance of surrounding yourself with people who get your vision and who are rooting for you to succeed! Have people in your life who will call you out, cheer for you, pray for you, and who have your best interest at heart! Because like the old saying goes, "Those who don't matter. And those who matter don't mind" (All people matter! But I pray you're picking up what I'm putting down) Community is important. A godly, supportive community is everything.
