It’s amazing how life takes on new meaning and adventure when you decide in your mind’s eye that you are going to make your big dream come true.
One of my dreams come true was moving with my beloved family back home to Cape Town, South Africa and accepting the community marketing and digital director position with Radisson RED. Radisson RED is a group of hotels inspired by art, music, and fashion–isn’t THAT just a perfect fit for me?!
I cannot say this dream journey of mine was easy by any stretch of the imagination. It involved moving from Cape Town to Pretoria and living without my husband and my daughter, then moving my them to be with me, working my way up in career choices, then landing the Radisson opportunity and moving again without my family, then waiting for my husband and daughter to join me months later.
Sometimes I don’t know how I survived. Being apart from the people you love is a difficult challenge. But we are so happy now that we are settled into this new life, and I am once more surrounded by relatives.
While I was going through the loneliness and uncertainty of living apart from my family, I used famous quotes to inspire me to keep looking ahead at what I wanted for myself and my family. These quotes are some of my favorite sayings that helped to remind me that dreams do come true if you believe in them and yourself. I added an encouraging post by Jack Canfield for anyone searching for how dreams do come true.
So stick with your dream plan; you CAN do it!
