Dream Boldly“Reach high, for the stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal”. ~Pamela Vaull Starr

Do you dream? Do you honor your dreams by not just thinking about them, but taking action on them? Do you have the courage to try something new, learn a new skill, dare to fail, work through the exasperation of being a newbie when you desire to be skilled and, in the final hour, realize that all skill is developed through desire, dedication, practice, love and tenacity? All the masters of their art started with a dream and a first step. We often see the finished product and admire the skill and artistry, experience the emotion of viewing captured imagination, and often don’t give much thought to the artist’s dedicated journey, the thousands of hours of practice, the multitude of failures, the commitment to excel, the sacrifices – all the efforts required to become a master.

Each of us is an artist. Our palettes and mediums are as varied as the mind can imagine. However, the common thread among all of us is we came to this earth to share our unique art.

There is a seed planted within you silently germinating. It’s planted deep in your soul, yearning to blossom and be shared with the world. At some point in time, you’ll feel the rumblings. The seed has been nourished by the stirrings of your passion and desire. It breaks free from its protective shell and boldly dares to tentatively take root in purpose. There is no turning back. There may be denial, avoidance and determined suppression, but you cannot undo Mother Nature. And why would you want to? This is your gift – one that only you can deliver. Embrace it. Trust it. Revel in your one-of-a-kind uniqueness. Dare to share it with the world!

What’s your dream? Declare it!

How can you share your art?

You have an audience waiting for its unveiling.
