Have you ever had a dream?
Have you ever had a dream, you wrote it down, spoke about it with your friends and peers, the more you verbalized it and the more you wrote about it…uggghhh you just couldn’t find the steps to attain this dream?
Well Ladies and Gents I am here to tell you that even just the action of having a dream, reminding yourself and those around you about it, Often, keeping it on your tongue and in your mind & heart, can lead to your dream coming true on a wednesday night without even having set out on that particular path that morning 😮
I’ll Paint the dream:
I Love Performing. Entertaining others. Showing what hard work and dedication to a craft can yield. Be it writing, acting, emoting, DANCING.
For quite some time I have been called to the ‘stage’. Living in New York City one stage in particular has caught my eye. The Street..The Subway Platform! For All to see! Those interested can stop to look on and others may continue about their lives. No commitment or obligation to watch. Just practicing a craft ready for onlookers engagements, interactions, questions, critiques, encouragements or nothing.. at the least I am Practicing!
My Dream: To Busk!! or street perform 🙂
Ask my friends I have been talking about this for a while.. and Last night.. It Happened!!
What Better way to use this past years studies of Yoga. 200 hour Teacher training at Yoga Vida & Mentorship at the Beautiful Sky Ting. Than to share it with the world.. or at least Times Square.. which is quite a lot of people!
It came TRUE: After seeing Something Rotten. (If you like musicals. This is the one to see!) we walked into Times Square and I thought it would be a great contrast to be holding a static pose in the middle of all the action.. and I could use a good stretch after being seated for 2 hours 20 minutes with a 20 minute intermission. Enter Dancers Pose. Stretch the thighs while working on balance and filling the chest and lungs with all that energy and light!
Step 2: Take up space. Be visible.
Like I said this is coming naturally. No preconceived plan here.
I enlisted a friend and gave our fearless photographer the task of reorganizing walking patterns to get a wide shot!
And then It Happened!
I felt it. A gaggle of girls watching us. One began to shout ‘I want one.’ I replied ‘A dancer?!’ Her friends joined her in mimicking the posture and telling me they’d like a photo.. with me 🙂
Line Up Line Up!
I started to cue the posture.
Fun ensued. As we turned for the photo op..
One sprightly youngin fell to the ground with a smile.
Hear your dreams. Write them down. Tell a friend. Tell everyone you meet. The more you talk about it the more you’ll workshop ideas to get you there and hey you might meet someone who has a tool or recommendation to help you achieve.
My favorite way of opening my mind to my dreams is starting with my actual, while I’m sleeping, Dreams.
Keep a journal near your bed. And whenever you wake up write down your dream. Even if it’s the middle of the night and that dream is fresh on your mind. Get it on paper. You’ll remember it.. or get it out of your head. They may speak loudly or they make speak softly. Usually they remind us of something we want in life!
#DreamsComeTrue with #Attention!
Length. Strength. And Love.
One last photo. The leader of the gaggle & I. Having a ball!!
