Let me tell you a story.
When I was just out of college, I hated my life, my job, my lover, and probably myself. I felt what used to be called ennui. I felt suppressed. Time hung heavy on my hands. Nothing I did seemed worth the time it took to do. But, raised by ultra conservative parents, I had learned to give a man a day’s work for a day’s pay and meet other people’s expectations. A job. A home. A dog and 2.5 children.
I had the job, the car, a nice apartment. I was a national training director for a major American company, and I was only 25 years old. What else could a young woman want?
My dream. I wanted to be a writer. But a rough road ran between 20th Century women and publishing success. How could I compete? I didn’t know anything about myself or my world or life in general. One day, I decided to change all that.
I quit my job, sublet my apartment and turned everything I owned into cash. With one large suitcase, I boarded a Yugoslavian freight ship to cross the Atlantic from Bayonne, N.J. We would sail the ocean blue and disembark in an undetermined port in Spain, Yugoslavia or Africa.
I actually went to all those places and more. The long and short of that story is I spent a year and a half living in everything from a three person pleasure boat to a one room bungalow on the island of Crete, with no toilet and a faucet sticking out of the wall over a metal pan. I got into a little trouble, met fascinating people, saw things I’ll remember forever, and worked my way through six countries before returning to New York with 65 cents and a half pack of cigarettes to my name.
Happy ending? For sure. I never went back to corporate America, though they invited me to. Ultimately, I married, acquired a home, and had three incredible kids. I also became a prolific, well-paid, full-time writer. It took me a few years, but I knew myself and what I wanted. I knew my dream. I had reached for the courage to do what I had to do to make it happen, even when it was scary.
“Stand up, brush yourself off and dare to accept relationships where we are cherished, have the job of our dreams, look into ourselves and find our own heart song.” – Claire ext. 5242
I stood alone at midnight in the middle of a foreign city with no one around to help me figure out food, shelter and resources. I managed that and much more, alone. Very little seems all that intimidating any more. My kids inherited that spirit. One son went to Iraq to fight for his country. One joined government service to fight terrorists. My daughter travelled the world as a Navy aviation specialist.
Am I telling you to take huge risks, drop out of your life, and walk the plank to the end and beyond? Only if you can muster up the courage and only if you love yourself enough to grab hold of the right stuff to succeed. You only get one shot at your dreams.
Our dreams create our reality. – Kelli ext. 5130
