Thank You From Deedee

I just wanted to stop by to thank you all for the support you have shown Make A Way recently. It’s been a great ride to take this journey with all of you and share our hopes and dreams. I have not posted in the last couple of weeks because we have had more going on than I can explain here, but I will share all about it soon.

It is on my heart to share with you today to keep going. There have been a lot of times that I have thought about giving up. I mean a lot of times. It would be easier in so many ways to just work my one regular full-time job as a therapist and not worry about chasing all of the crazy dreams I have, but then, I know I would have a lot of regrets. Major regrets.

If you are reading this today, don’t give up. Sometimes I ask why I even have these dreams, but I am so thankful for them.

Dreams are life. 

If you give up on them, you give up on the very reason why you are here. You give up on the very essence of this life. It takes effort to breathe, but have you ever tried not breathing? That is worse. Pursue your dreams with everything you have. Make a list and promise yourself that every day you will do one thing on that list.

I do not look at my goal of making a Broadway show. I look at the next step I need to get there and I only focus on that until it is done. Then I do the next thing.

This same technique will work for you whether you are trying to pursue a dream or whether you are just trying to get through a day. Just focus on the next thing. The next thing might be a nap! And that’s okay too, because if that is what your mind and body are calling you to do next, then that is what you need. Just don’t give up. I am happy to share this journey with you. Thank you for believing in this dream and for all you do to show me support, empathy, and hope whether it is by buying a book, sharing a post, or joining the K Club which is now one thousand members strong! And to think- that all started with a dream. I feel the love. I hope all of you do too.
