Hey everyone! I just wanted to take the time to let each and everyone one of you know how grateful I am to all of you for taking the time out of your day to read my blog. You don't know how much it means to me. I still can't believe this little idea I had last year has become a reality. You're all amazing and I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you!
That being said, I wanted to let everyone in on a little bit of news. When I created my Facebook Fan page, I told myself that once I reached 1,000 fans I would start writing my first cookbook. I'm sure it will be a long process, but that process starts today! There are so many things that I want to accomplish in this life and so many dreams I want to experience. This blog has been one of them, my future cookbook is one, but they are one of many.
Music is my life. It's like breathing to me. I have never gone one day without singing. And when I say that, I mean singing. It just makes me feel alive every time. So, you can imagine that I would love to make a career out of music. How to even begin, I have no clue, but I know I have to start today. I've always seen myself up on stage singing in front of thousands of people. I hope that some day I can make that dream a reality.
Animals and Animal rights are also a huge part of my life. Being Vegan has been one of the single most rewarding things I have ever done with my life. Knowing that I save hundreds of lives every year just by changing my diet makes me feel like I'm changing the world for the better every day. Another dream of mine (a more recent dream) is to open a Farm Animal Sanctuary in my hometown here in Minnesota. Once I came to that realization, it just felt right. It felt like I had found a missing puzzle piece. Along with music and acting, I have always known that being of service and championing animal rights is my life's purpose.
I just need to find the time and energy to start. It's my 24th birthday on Friday and I'm going to make this 24th year count. No more thinking and procrastinating. Only doing.
I still think about Oprah's final show and the words she left us with. "You always had the power" has been in my head since that day. "I've always had the power"....I just need to use that power for good and change in my life. I want to leave this place better than when I found it. I want to make this life easier and better for my family, for these two little girls.
What do you all think? How do you find the time and energy to fit everything in to your day?
