I Have a Dream


Breaking the Mold

We are different you and I; no mold is the same. Although we are packaged in different shapes ‎and sizes and colored many assorted shades of beauty, we are also very similar you and I. Deep ‎within our beings we sprout dreams. We each sport our own unique hopes and aspirations. Both ‎the deep souled visionary as well as the dream catcher, who bides his time, baiting many a small ‎fry, can be found amongst us.‎

Whether our dream be bold and brazen or hidden beneath the surface, we each kindle a flame of ‎hope within our hearts. Usually most of our precious time will be spent dealing with the small ‎‎“fluff” while our grand vision is pushed, whether consciously or not, to the recesses of our ‎attentions, far beyond our agenda.‎

We are quick to center stage flashy slogans on T shirts but a true call to action is reluctant to ‎emerge. Small dreams, small stuff: the way is clear. There is little dilemma and it’s merely a ‎question of time and money until we are able to fulfill our dreams. When our dream is a bold ‎vision, however, this is hardly the case. On the one hand, our vision is intense and empowering, ‎but, on the other hand, it is both paralyzing and overpowering. There is neither a “How to Fulfill ‎Your Vision for Dummies” handbook nor any clear instructions on “How to Assemble Your Visionary ‎Plan”. There is much work ahead and the first move is far from clear.‎

A Dream is Born

Once upon a blue moon, however, our vision is so clear and so powerful that it develops a mind of ‎its own. It ravages our agenda and makes its grand entrance boldly, unannounced and totally ‎unexpected. Quite possibly we were clueless, totally unaware of important plans brewing to ‎spout: a song is born. ‎

How is a song born?‎
Like a baby
At the beginning it hurts
But then it comes out
And everyone is happy
And suddenly – Wow!‎
It walks on its own

Mazal Tov!

And so the story went in my house: merely substitute “blog” instead “song”.‎


Congratulations! Mazal Tov! Today marks the first anniversary of the birth of my blog. The “cherub” ‎is one years old. You can read my first post here: “Find Your Dream and Ride It!” About a year and a ‎half ago I created a vision board and nothing within that board made a direct reference to a desire ‎to blog. While fabricating my board, I had no vision, neither large nor small, to become a blogger: it ‎absolutely never crossed my mind. ‎


It seems that the universe had other plans for me. As a young girl, I spent much time with creative ‎writing projects. “Thoughts at 16” was a printed collection of songs, poems, stories and other ‎creations written by me. At school I was often praised for my writing abilities. Upon completion of ‎my academic studies and as computers and other technologies invaded my life, my writing days ‎came to an almost complete standstill. ‎

Coincidentally, about a year and a half ago my mother passed away. Her passing seems to have ‎been the major force which shocked and motivated me to pick up my pen once again. I wrote a ‎moving piece in her memory to be read at her funeral. This became the basis for a post to my ‎Facebook business page. Suddenly I was overwhelmed with a flood of “likes” and comments. The ‎rest is history: that first post became the gateway to my blog, my website and the basis for my ‎short animated clip which will makes its debut momentarily.‎


Need I reveal to you that I also had no plans to produce an animated clip…. That dream also took on ‎a life of its own, a life so powerful and so full of vitality that it is kicking me with all of its might: let ‎me out of here! I am directly in the line of fire. The labor contractions are overwhelming and I can’t ‎wait to meet this newest addition to my family!‎

Say No!

I lost my father to severe arteriosclerotic heart disease at the young age of 54, my ‎mother to ‎Parkinson’s.‎

Chronic disease is but a product of the choices that we ‎make. In your day to day actions say no to ‎chronic disease. Choose to embody the power that is naturally yours.‎

The power is ours!

I would like to thank you for your patience in reading this post to its end.‎

If you liked what you read and you are not on my mailing list, you can sign up ‎here.‎

Finally I would like to request that you please share my post which precedes the ‎release of my animated clip (soon, I promise). I am so excited! Please share this ‎post…

Thank you and have a great week!‎


You tell your future! The power is ours!
