Cinderella, Disneyland & My Dream -- A Lesson From 2009

{ A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes }
Disneyland, CA -- 2009

I came across these photos of some great Cinderella statues that Disneyland had on display in the shops on Main Street's windows back in 2009. At the time, I began toying with the idea of becoming a photographer, but it was only a dream in my heart then.

I love the story of Cinderella because she believed in her dream, even in the face of adversity and even though her dream seemed unattainable.

I've been juggling working full time and pursuing this dream of becoming a photographer together for a long time and was finding myself with no time to really pour myself into my work and grow.

Until recently.....

I heard the call to step out of full time work, step into the carriage and down the road of following my dream of becoming a photographer.

I left behind the safe because I believe that dreams are made for coming true. I left my full time place of employment to take on a part time position so that I could pursue this deep desire in my heart.

"A dream is a wish your heart makes....have faith in your dreams and someday, your rainbow will coming smiling through. No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, a dream that you wish will come true."

I took a chance on my dream and am so glad that I did! It may be the biggest mistake of my life or the biggest blessing, but I won't know unless I try. I didn't want to look back and say, "What if?"

So, onward!

I've always believed that dreams can come true.
Sometimes those dreams take time to come true.
But I believe that they will happen if you believe they can.

Dream it. Believe it. Acheive it.

A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes..... what is your heart dreaming?
What goal would you like to accomplish?
What dream do YOU wish you could see come true?

....Have faith in your dreams and someday.....

....a dream that you wish will come true.

I'm so glad that mine did. : )
