If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I will answer you:
“I am here to live out loud” ~Emile Zola
Good morning! This quote has always resonated with me. I actually
found it on an inspirational wall calendar my mother had given me
about five years ago. I placed a photo of me doing a running-leap
and breaking a board in karate and mounted it over the photo on the
calendar. I then framed it and look at it often as an inspiration
of what I can do when I set my mind to it.
Karate had always interested me. When I was little, I remember
envying other kids who were enrolled at a young age and earned
their various belts. I liked the idea of being able to protect
myself. When my daughter was five, I took her to a local karate
studio, wanting her to have the experience that I hadn’t. While
there, the Master of the studio talked me in to giving it a whirl.
I fell in love with the discipline.
What hidden dreams or goals or childhood ambitions do you have? Why
not pursue them? Why not live out loud? Pick up a paint brush, join
a karate, or jazz dancing class. It is never too late to pursue a
childhood dream, unless we allow it to be.
I pursue my ambitions, treating them with as much importance as I
do those of my family members.
