I’ve always been a dreamer. When I would tell my family what new adventure I wanted to take on, they’d roll their eyes and say something like, “Oh yeah? Well let us know how that works out for you.” Meaning, of course, that no one expected my dreams to amount to much.
I wanted to be a pilot in the Canadian Air Force, a Royal Canadian Mounted Policewoman, and Prime Minister of Canada.
I wanted to be a youth minister, an opera singer, and a ballet dancer.
I wanted to be happy.
The good news is . . . not all dreams stay relegated to dreamland forever.
I was an opera singer (five years with Opera Idaho) and tried ballet for one magical summer when I was thirty years old.
And I’ve discovered new dreams that are coming true even as we speak.
And . . . I’m happy. Thanks to my family, friends and a core set of beliefs that shape my day.
It’s true, I’m a dreamer. But man, where my dreams have taken me!
