Are You Living Your Dream? I'm Trying To...
We all have dreams when we are young and continue to dream as we go through life. Our dreams evolve as we mature and some aspirations just seem unachievable. Some little boys dream of becoming astronauts or professional athlete, while some little girls dream of becoming ballerinas or singers. All dreams are special and hopes for the future. Unfortunately at some point reality creeps in. Some dreams are very difficult to achieve, and when one does achieve them they do no necessarily pay the bills.
I was always a dancer, a pretty good dancer to be honest, but it wasn't my passion. That statement might surprise many who grew up with me and saw me a fierce dance competitor. I enjoyed dancing but books and art were my passion. If I were living my dream today, I would either be a curator at a lovely gallery or museum, preferably in Europe. Or I would make my living as a writer. My family is full of artists, a talent I do not have, but I love beautiful paintings. Monet and the Impressionism style is my favorite. I could stare at beautiful art work all day.
As far as writing goes, I write daily. Whether or not writing alone will someday pay my bills I care not. I have no regrets. I have done a lot in my life, achieved a lot, but like many of you I still have dreams. Those dreams evolve as I grow and change as a person. I will never stop writing. I enjoy it and know that as long as I am writing, I am one step closer to making my dream a reality.
Are you living your dream? Have you given up or taken a break? Now is the time...time won't wait for you.
