True Dreams Past and Present

6 Comments


Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. ~Harriet Tubman

I did not have an idea what my future would bring growing up. I had many dreams back then, but the dreams I had were very high on my ambition scale. My parents did the best with what they had. We were a family of four, my dad worked a lot, and my mom stayed at home to take care of us, but my story is not about my upbringing, it’s about discovering our real dreams. I left my parents direct to my married home.

Now, fast forward to the present. I am in my late fifties, have adult children, I am a grandmother and married to the same guy for over thirty years. What can I say, he is my best friend, my confidant and the guy I go out with every Saturday night. He works away from home these days, and I find myself with a lot of alone time.

I had an epiphany, and it became apparent that I never ventured out on my own. How did I get here and how do I move forward from here? As a young person I had so many aspirations; going away to college, becoming a famous singer and traveling abroad to become an artist.  I married my guy, and we started a family, everything that I dreamt of achieving was placed on a shelve.

Years later, I graduated from college, I did not become a famous singer nor did I become an artist but what I did discover were new passions. I have a love for picture-taking and a love for writing aside from having a full-time job.

Isn’t it funny how many dreams flock through a young person mind? I believe that it is a necessity for the development of self-worth and individual identity.

I look forward to exploring the possibilities through discovery by taking it one day at a time. Food for thought.

I am a writer at heart. My love for writing was discovered back in 2009. I truly believe that it is never too late to discover your passion. I am originally from the Bronx of New York and presently reside​ in Kissimmee, Florida since 1994. My interest is vast with a multitude of ideas. I look forward to writing about them and I hope you will join me as I express my views, ideas, and passion for life.
