Today is for...Dreams
What is your biggest dream in life?
'Midnight train to Georgia' has always been one of my favourite songs. Maybe because sometimes the lyrics ressonates deeply with me.
"He kept dreaming
Ooh, that some day he'd be a star
(A superstar, but he didn't get far)
But he sure found out the hard way
That dreams don't always come true, oh no, uh uh
So he pawned down his hopes.."
I had many dreams and because of them, I left my country, my family and my friends several times, because I believed that I had great things to do and many places to go.
Over the years, I have come to adjust and even kill some of my dreams, but the dream to speak to people was always there despite my efforts to let it go too.
I then came to understand that it's a gift and the interactions and exchanges I have with people from different backgrounds makes something in me comes to life, and those I speak to also take something useful from this encounters.
The desire to connect with people is the reason why I tried and keep trying to find my voice and spread my message.
Some days, I question myself and my ability to rise to the challenge. However, I did and do believe that it's worth all the time, energy and dedication I put on it, even if I am speaking to an audience of one person. If because of what I say, one person goes on feeling good about himself/herself and enjoying life more, that brings me great joy. .
Standing in front of the amazing people at the jellybeanconference will be a dream coming true, especially because I get to speak about something that is precious to me: Meditation and Wellbeing.
I am thrilled and can't help but feel super grateful for this awesome opportunity.
Hope to see you in the front row. DM for discounted tickets.
Today the invitation is for us all to continue to believe and work for dreams might come true when least expected. @suzy_ashworth says: Faith+Action = Miracles.
