So there’s no getting around it…I’m different. From growing up on tour with my parents for the first 6 years of my life to my absolute adoration of seeing movies alone to my relentless search for a moment to get lost in and my undying desire to see my dreams realized.
I’m not your average girl.
Sometimes I wish for a day without big dreams or maybe just a life a little less planned out. For God’s sake I’ve known what I wanted to do since I was 8 years old: be an actress. Though having an “eye on the prize” attitude has its perks…it can sometimes make me feel like I’ve missed out on so much.
In those moments I often look for inspiration to tell me it’s okay…following your dreams can be overwhleming but the beauty of seeing them realized is worth everything you may sacrifice throughout the journey.
So I want to share this video: (remember that whole thing I said about being really different? Well, I absolutely adore muppets. Yes, muppets. Jim Henson and crew really get me going)…it’s the trailer for a documentary about Kevin Clash aka the voice of my favorite muppet of all time, ELMO!!!
Needed that reminder. Dreams are as real as you make them. And they’re always bigger than you. Face the adversity. Swallow the trials. And watch your purpose on this earth unfold.
Dare to fight for your moment to change someone’s life through your story.
“All of those things will go away if you really focus on what makes you happy”- Kevin Clash
