Do you have a crazy dream that you’ve kept in spite of not doing a thing to achieve it?
For me it’s always been being a lead singer.
In my teens I was involved in the school’s choir and my parents paid for lessons until my stage fright had me abandoning it.
In spite of not doing anything about this this little dream has me doing YouTube karaoke, pretending I’m on stage when putting on make up, and dancing around my living room.
Last month I found a school in town that teaches adults in a band setting. For $250/month I get to be in a band!
I’ll even be performing in front of crowds twice a year. Considering all my goals I wondered if this would be the best use of funds. How does joining a band and relearning to sing align with everything?
Remarkably well! I’ll be hitting the first 2 points of the things that I felt would make my life feel meaningful. For us the whole point of saving is to make our dreams come true. Pursuing this may mean that it takes me longer to save my 6 month buffer or we adjust our vacation goals. It does mean that I can get to make 2 dreams come true:
- Being a singer
- Having the money to pursue my dreams
While honouring myself.
What childhood dream would you revisit if you could?
