Dream Awake and Embracing Change with Chris Bilbao: Part Two

If you are just stopping by today, feel free to catch up by checking out part one of Embracing Change with Chris B.!
Now let's continue our little interview, shall we :)

4. Has learning to embrace change in life helped you move closer to your dreams?
I think it makes you less afraid to pursue something.  If you embrace it, you become less afraid of it.  If you become less afraid of it, then you are free to work and live in a happier environment. For me, change first came when I started my first day of work.  Immediately, I was asked all kinds of questions relating to taking care of patients in an ICU setting (think "Scrubs" pilot episode).  It was a change that I was afraid of, but embraced at the same time.  I wanted to be here, but the reality of the situation was that I was now carrying more responsibility on an everyday basis.  I was in charge of someone's health today, when yesterday I was given virtually no responsibility.  If you accept the change, you can better prepare for it and come out better on the other side.
Chris and Mary are also naturally talented Dancers...very well rounded folks :)
5. Any advice you would like to offer readers about pursuing their dreams and learning to accept the crazy changes that life throws at us?
 Life is not always fair.  As much as we fight it, it is beyond our control.  Change is inevitable.  Pursue your dreams, even with the understanding that plans may be altered along the way.  The old cliche "Things happen for a reason" continues to reveal itself to me and it really couldn't be truer.  There will always be times when you're on top of the world, and there will always be times when your back is against a wall.  It's the ups and downs of life, and you are never alone.  Everyone has gone through it, and everyone will continue to do it.  Having someone to lean on for support is certainly a blessing. 

So what did you guys think of Chris and his dreams?  Every time I read this last page, I get shivers. Keep chasing your dreams and learn that change can be a blessing. Like Chris said, "things happen for a reason," with faith and trust those reasons will be revealed and our dreams will unfold as they are meant to :)

Thank you Chris for taking the time out of your busy schedule to share your dreams and wisdom with us!
