WHAT DID YOU DAYDREAM ABOUT AS A KID THAT YOU’D LIKE TO MAKE A REALITY?
Like all kids, my dreams were endless: dragon slayer, photographer, tennis player, fashion designer, rock star, teacher, photo-journalist, lawyer, best-selling author, interior designer, realtor, magazine editor, and on, and on … there were no limits to the dreams I had.
I take bits and pieces of most of those dreams into my life now, certainly parenting covers many of them – especially dragon slayer.
I’d like to get back into playing tennis and golf. I sing in the car as though I were a rock star. I still dress up my kids when I see things I think they’d like. Blogging is much like being a photo-journalist or magazine editor with neither pressure or fame. Instagram keeps me taking photos. Renovating a home appeals to my inner interior designer. Buying and selling houses lets me play realtor without the headaches.
Best-selling author? That is the one I’m working on. I don’t even need the best-selling part – just the published part that would make me the “official” author I’d like to be.
I enjoy answering tough questions if for no other reason to challenge myself to dig deep and tap into what I know to be true to my core, for me, no bullshit; and, I want to encourage others to show up and answer their own tough questions. In the midst of packing and moving in mid-October 2020, I got an email from BestSelf™ about an ICEBREAKER “Deeper Talk” deck. A deck? Hello? I’m IN! This deck contains 150 questions split across 6 different categories: Beliefs, Courage, Dreams, Exposed, Life Lessons and Self-Awareness. How tough can it be? We’re about to find out. 150 weeks of answers. (I’m so much better with giving the answers than asking the questions.) I do hope you share your answers with me! #letshaveaconversation #deepertalkdeck
