I just wanted to offer a ‘BIG’ thanks to everyone for helping me chase my dream. I appreciate your support and encouragement. I had some big breaks in 2010 thanks to YOU spreading the word. Little things like forwarding emails, leaving comments on blogs and status updates, signing-up for newsletters, and just being great friends, opened the door to some incredible opportunities for me.
I love speaking and sharing my art. I traveled to more states and performed to more audiences than ever before. Thousands heard my message and were inspired by some chalk smeared on canvas. What a year!
Some big possibilities are in the works for 2011 too, including the possibility of working with a major speaker’s bureau. With prayer, hard work, and your continued encouragement I may just see that leap I so passionately seek.
Regardless of what happens, I will chase my dream.
You are awesome!
Now, I really am chasing my dream. I have to ask, are you chasing yours?
I not only want 2011 to an incredible year for you, I want each and every day to be one of joy and satisfaction. Two of the best ways I have found to make that happen are:
1) Take some action each day toward your dream. Write a few words of that novel. Run a mile of that future marathon. Order the paints that will one day become the masterpiece. Something.
2) Help someone else toward their dream. Perhaps it’s hard to believe, perhaps not, but encouraging others toward success brings incredible joy and satisfaction to our lives. I love to see my children, students, and friends succeed in life, and if I have played some small part in it, then it’s like I gain hours or days onto my own life. Truly exhilarating. Go ahead, send an email, text, or card of encouragement. Or go bigger and order them the paint, babysit their child for an hour, or anything you can to help someone toward their dream.
Before each performance I ask God to grant me the opportunity to inspire a life. Thank you for inspiring me.
