When I was a little girl, I was convinced that I was Dianna Ross.
With my hairbrush in hand, I would sing my guts out, standing on my bed,
waving and blowing kisses to all of my adoring fans.
They were so supportive, those invisible fans. They never told me that I couldn’t do something.
A few years later, I was introduced to my first pair of legwarmers, and Flashdance came out.
I had a new passion, it was dance. And I was going to be a professional dancer.
And live in a converted warehouse, and have a cool dog. And a cute boyfriend.
Fashion design & marketing came along, and well, I hoped to have my own runway show
at some point. In the meantime I could rock the largest shoulder pads to be found.
And some sweet hot pink lipstick.
I traded my legwarmers for a hot glue gun, and a huge supply of beads, and well the rest is crafty history.
The threads were always there, even if the thing I was focused on was different.
The desire to create, make, write, and share never changed. It’s that passion that we hold on to so tightly.
Because that drive is where our heart is, what keeps us awake at night, and where our thoughts wander.
I’ve never been one to really choose a huge resolution, I know I will make it and keep it when I am ready,
that tends to happen not on a specific day.
I wish for you a year that is real, and is a healer, and a guide to show you those early snapshots
of what you wanted to do, and be.
They really aren’t that far off, and you may see threads of today, and things you love woven more tightly
to the past, maybe some pain, and usually a little suffering too.
Somehow all of those experiences are woven together and can work beautifully together.
The struggle, the breakthrough, taking a deep breath (or 40) and forge on, remembering our dreams,
and keeping the hustle on towards them.
