Passion is inspiring, isn’t it? Especially the quiet kind of passion shared by AggieSoon on Saturday. Her post touched me and I wanted to find out more about this campaign. Time I got involved.
My parents separated when I was 5. It had not been a happy household, but both parents continued to love me and provide whatever support they could, both emotional and physical. Still, I was a shy, awkward child, never easy in my own skin and most often with my nose in a book. Secretly I had my dreams. I loved to sing, and imagined that one day I might be able to hold an audience in the palm of my hand. I had neither the confidence nor the ability. As the years wore on that dream faded, but life was kind. My travel writing fulfilled some of my dreams. This world is made for sharing.
If I could say one thing to this little girl it would be this :
Don’t let anybody steal your dreams. There is a world full of possibilities out there, and one of them is for you.
Inspire the next generation of girls by sharing your photo and your story for International Day of the Girl 2021.
