pay your dues

What is with the “paying your dues” mentality?  It’s like I need my face to be ground into the dirt enough times to make sure I know what it tastes like.  I get it.  It’s dirt.  Why is it when someone *makes it* that flies right out of the window and said person can do nothing less than walk on water.  I am finding the “getting there” is the challenge.  It’s like blockade after blockade after blockade.  I don’t feel like I have overwhelming support because I’m taking a risk and I didn’t grow up around or marry into the risk-taker category.  This may be a good thing for stability purposes but not so much for chasing dreams.  I’m sure my little haphazard support group wants me to succeed.  I know they’re still holding up the “You go girl!” signs but I think the enthusiasm went away a long time ago.  I’ve been trying to start my rocky path but I keep getting shoved to the back of the line.  And now, it is about time I start shoving back.  I may have been that little kid that sits in the corner of the sandbox while the other kids throw sand bombs at me but it is time I make my stand.  It’s not so funny when I’ve got all the sand now.
