Fuel for thought

I read this in surrdave's LJ this morning:

When you don't have the fuel for your inner drive, you can't pursue dreams, and when you don't pursue them, you lose them.

This hit a chord with me.

I've never understood how so many of my college friends gave up their dreams. We all had them years ago, but nearly all of them gave theirs up.

I, OTOH, have been doing what I can to live mine. Lately, though, due to economics I'm spending more energy trying to survive and less on the pursuit of happiness. This, in turn, has really been dragging me down.

This was the first year where I didn't make any real resolutions because things were that bad. I don't know how to get out of this rut (suggestions welcome), but I've got to.
