Besides becoming a mama, these are 3 of my biggest dreams. I'm putting these out there to the Universe. Who knows who could be reading this that could help to make my dreams come true!
Dream #1. Be a guest on the Oprah Show. My dream is to be an expert guest, talking about my best selling book. (Plus, after months and months of trying to attend the show, I've decided it is easier for me to write a best selling book and then get on the show as a guest than it is to get audience tickets.) Ok, anyone out there reading this that knows the big O? Anyone out there who loves my blog and knows a book agent or publisher? Hook a girl up. Pleeeeease?
Dream #2. Be on a show like Dancing with the Stars. Getting paid to be on t.v., dance for hours each week, and wear those glamorous sparkly costumes? Are you kidding? I'm not sure what could possibly be better. Seriously. That is as close to heaven on earth as I could possibly get.
Dream #3. Be a professional cheerleader. It's sad for me to write this one, because most likely it's just not going to happen. (You may be thinking: AND LIKE THE OTHER TWO ARE??? Well, you just never do know. Don't rain on my parade.) Now, I'm almost 35. I think the oldest cheerleader in professional cheerleading history was 36 (yes, I've looked it up before). Plus, I just got my long locks cut super short and I'm an A cup.
I've always been in love with dancing and cheerleading, but my career in those fields got sidetracked by a track scholarship. Just watching the dance team in college turned my brown eyes green with envy. I did try out for the Patriots Cheerleading Squad, once when I was 26 and once when I was 32. I got to the final round of the preliminary day that second time (which isn't too shabby because I was at least 10 years older than most of the girls and I wasn't on the dance team in college.) When I came home from the tryouts, I cried to my husband, "I'll never get to dance around with pom poms again!" Well, maybe not.
What are your big dreams? I would love to hear about them!
