Go Get Up Girl! Go Chase After Those Dreams Of Yours

Posted: April 2, 2018

Women’s Web is bringing the popular #BreakingBarriers event to Pune, Panjim, Hyderabad, Kolkata & Coimbatore. Register

Women let go of their dreams pretty early in their lives, and some never go that way again. It’s never too late to chase after dreams, though!

Stop…
Let that milk on the stove burn,
Let that call from dudhwalah wait,
Take a moment,
And look at yourself in the mirror
Are you the one who you dreamed to be, when you were in school?
If no, then act now! Go get up girl!

Stop…
Let those clothes stay in the washer for some more time,
Let those dishes wait
Let your kiddo play with his father,
Take a sip of Hot chai, feel its aroma and warmth,
Take a moment
And think,
Are you the one who you dreamed to be, when you were in school?
If no, then act now! Go get up girl!

Stop…
Let the discussion with colleagues go like rockets on your head,
Let the fastest target achiever title wait,
Take a walk on lawn outside your office,
And wonder,
Are you the one who you dreamed to be, when you were in school?
If no, then act now! Go get up girl!

Stop…
Let someone from your neighborhood cook better food than yours,
Let someone have more control over their kids than you have on your own,
Let the comparisons wait,
And cherish what you’ve got…
Go after your dreams.
Chase them.
Try, Fall and rise again.
It’s okay to fall.
Its okay to get hurt in your journey.
Make the journey “Yours!”
Go get up girl!
