Every day, as a parent, I encourage my children with my words. I urge them to be brave, kind, and persistent, and to follow their dreams. But wait. Are my actions in alignment with the advice I give?
Not always. Not recently. I know this because I have recurrent dreams - of experiences I haven't had, places I've not visited, and personal challenges I've yet to tackle. When these recurrent dreams surface at the forefront of my mind, I often dismiss them with a casual "one day."
It's time to do my part. To be brave, kind, and persistent. To follow my dreams.
Actions will always speak louder than words.
