Allo from Le Marais, Paris!
December 29, 2013. So how do you live life to the fullest? I have to admit, if you asked me that 2, 5 even 10 years ago, I would have wanted to pull my covers over my head and let someone else figure that out. Don’t get me wrong. With some of the best kids on the planet and a job where I was growing, life was well. To be honest, some days I looked at the glass half full. Some days, I looked at the glass half empty.
Luckily I’m surrounded with friends and family who love me and one day a girlfriend asked me, “What do you dream of?” My kids were at the rink practicing. All my busy running around suddenly blew across me like one of my kids coming up short on their skates and spraying me with ice. What did I really dream of?
Dreaming out loud
You can check out the rest of my story on my website under My Paris Story - my dream was to go to Paris and explore a city I loved. All of us have some secret wishes or dream, even goals that we hope bubble to the surface someday. Something seems to hold us back. Sometimes the biggest thing holding us back is fear. Fear of rejection. Fear of failure. It keeps us from soaring into the skies. You know what I discovered? That’s OK! I remembered racking my brain with all of those same feelings. In all of the struggling there was a kernel of hope. I dared to speak my dream out loud to my friend. With her support, I had my first break through!
“If you can dream it, you can do it.” Walt Disney said. I’m just so excited to let you know it’s true! Many times we look at people we think are living life to the fullest and think they have a secret decoder ring in their pocket that the universe issued them. We think there’s some magic they have that we don’t. Or, we think they are just “lucky”! It’s just not true! Disney, for all of his wild successes, tried and failed many times. That wasn’t the point. The point was that he believed in his own dream. That belief is a powerful tool.
Full Circle, Full Life….Cercle Plein, Vie Pleine….
So I dreamed of going to Paris, and because of that dream, life has exploded for me with good things. I’m excited to launch my website with my new business Abundance Within! How wonderful it is to launch my website while back in Paris, this time with mon amour, sitting in our little apartment in Le Marais! The interesting thing looking back is that although there have been a many changes in my life, I’ve noticed that making small adjustments toward my dream has brought life to where it is today. Today life has come full circle. My kids are still the best kids on the planet! I now have a new fulfilling job as a Life Coach. There just seems to be so much more joy in my joie de vivre! I’m excited to share it with people so they too can experience the same empowered lifestyle that has transformed mine.
So wherever you are today in life, today let me be your friend and offer you a gentle question, “What do you dream of?” Let’s dream together. Let’s work together to offer you more Abundance Within!
All my best! Hugs on this SPECIAL day! Drop me a line, I'd love to hear from you!
