Unimagined magic. Steering a lifeboat in the Shetland Isles – Day 41/80 of my 2014 ‘little British things Tour’
Some people believe having dreams is a first world indulgence for people with too much stuff, too much time on their hands, too few problems & not enough gratitude for any.
On Comic Relief on the BBC in March, comedian Dermot O’Leary shared his experience of what he encountered when he spent 24 hours with three teenage boys (age 12 to 14) on the streets of a city in Uganda, a ‘third-world’ country. Although these boys had virtually nothing except the clothes they stood up in & lived off just 10 pence a day, they still had dreams – to be a footballer, to be a pilot, to have an education.
On Caribbean with Simon Reeve on the BBC, he visited Restavek Freedom in Haiti, a group who cares for Restaveks, children who have been abandoned by their families to a life of slavery & abuse with strangers. Simon asked the youngest Restavek girl if she had a dream, she replied, “I’d like to be president.”
I believe her. I believe in the magic of living our own dreams.
I believe there’s a dream in all of us, that the desire to dream is an integral part of the human spirit – the inner compass which leads & guides each of us like a star in a night sky.
Some people think it’s selfish to focus on living dreams.
I believe living your dreams is the ultimate gift of love to yourself, to your family & friends, to your children, in fact to everyone you ever come into contact with in the world. It’s your gift to humanity. It’s how you can make a difference in the world.
Which is why my ultimate dream is to inspire, lead & guide ‘anyone & everyone’ to experience the magic of living their own dream – to make a difference, to change the world, one dream at a time.
This is the beginning of Dream Seed Magic, a cheerleading community of real & practical value for those who want to discover their own dream & to bring their dream to life. And for the magic of living those dream seeds to be spread by sharing the success stories back into the community & beyond.
There are many reasons which hold people back from doing something they’ve always wanted to do, such as not having access to positive people who believe in the benefits of realising dreams, both to ourselves, to those closest to us & to the world around us. And not having access to cheerleading connections who can help their actions to gain momentum to make what seems complicated & impossible – happen!
I’m discovering, since living the first dream of my own life, at age 40, nearly 5 years ago (you know, the one to live a year in France?), that although our dreams are as individual, unique & beautiful as each of our faces, dreams tend to have common themes, such as travel, love & family, weight-loss, business & career, or a specific pursuit such as waterskiing, teaching, learning to paint, dance or even learning to read. Plus so much more.
And there’s no age limit!
Since living my first dream, to live a year in France (which became living two years in Paris) I have emerged from a place of repeated depression, struggling with an eating disorder, bullying in the work place, a destructive relationship & being referred to the cancer queue with a lump on my breast, to experiencing unimagined magic. I have since woven living my dreams through my everyday life, including: sharing my story as a memoir, Dream Seed Magic ~ A Journey Beyond My Imagination, now published & available on Amazon, cruised the coast of Norway into the Arctic Circle & experienced the infinite magic of witnessing the Aurora Borealis & completed my 2014 little British things Tour around the coast of Britain in 80 days. And more.
Now I want to share the magic, my wisdom & my experience of living my own dreams to help others to experience the magic of living their own dreams. I’m currently running Dream Team Experience workshops, Dream Seed Magic personal mentoring days, & parties. And I’m building partnerships (& creating a new online presence) to make the Dream Seed Magic community a truly valuable space & practical experience – a place that makes a difference!
And the Dream Seed Magic Tour ~ bringing 365 dreams alive is coming soon…
