“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” –Harriet Tubman
So often I’ll be at a book signing and someone will mention to me that they wanted to be a writer when they were a kid. Sometimes readers will even tell me they once had dreams to become an artist or a musician. The question that usually comes to my mind is, “Why didn’t you?”
Too many people spend their lives working and not much time on their passions. Not that work is bad. We all need to pay bills and if we are lucky, our work can be our passion. But what about those other things you always wanted to do? Is there an art or hobby you wish you had taken up? I have a dear friend who works hard in her day job and spends her spare time doing things like knitting and teaching herself to play instruments. Just this week she played flute in a local concert. She only taught herself to play this year!
If you have dreams you wish you had pursued, it’s not too late to reach for the stars. Why not start now?
