I remember the day well. It was about 10 years ago and I was standing in my kitchen at my cottage in Northwestern Ontario…..
At that time it was my new cottage or camp as we call them in our neck of the woods. I had just recently acquired the camp and it was a life long dream come true. My biggest motivator was to have my own daughter, who was around 5 at the time, play in the sand and make sand castles just like I did growing up on a lake.
I was also motivated to have a place in nature where I could write and be inspired.
Anyhow, on to my story……
I was standing in the kitchen and expressing my JOY to my nephew Byron and I shared how happy I was and that I felt that I had everything I ever wanted in life. I had a happy relationship with an amazing man, a great daughter, work that I loved, my home, and now my camp.
And I said something like this: “Sometimes I think I must be dying because I feel complete or that I have all that I ever wanted”. Byron quickly said to me a phrase I will never forget....
The life changing phrase….
He said this: “Aunty you want a red convertible”. 🙂 And I said “No, I don’t” and he said “Yes, you do!” And I said “NO I don’t!” And he said again “Yes You DO!”…. and then it hit me and I understood what he meant.
He meant don’t stop dreaming and don’t get ready to die. Keep dreaming and keep striving. I don’t think Bryon realized that day how powerful his words were and are to me to this day!
I have since had more dreams come true. In fact, I sit here typing this at my most treasured place of two years… my little lake house on the shores of Lake Superior which has been more than a dream come true!
My dreams are bigger now and grander but the best part is that now they are outside of myself.
I have been studying internet marketing for many years and all I can see are opportunities to amass wealth and abundance. But with that said, my dreams now are more to do with making positive changes in the world and showing people that they too can be dreamers and pursue their passions.
I am just starting to formulate the causes that I will assist with and I am open to the universe to show me where my resources will go to make the world a better place, all while I have JOY on the journey.
I hope that you too never stop dreaming and that your purpose on earth is something that you support and encourage so that your soul can flourish!
I send you all much love today and always and in all ways.
P.S. Side note:
I just remembered that I have always had this vision of riding in a convertible on the coast of California or somewhere… okay the red convertible might make the list after all 🙂
