Do you remember when you were little and life just seemed like this vast unknown spreading out before you?
You dreamed about what you wanted to be “when you grew up” and it seemed perfectly plausible that you might end up being a teacher/pilot/firefighter/veterinarian/deep sea diver/Luke Skywalker.
Recently my mom gave me this…
Did you have one of these? She’s been going through all of my old school papers, cards, letters etc and the ones she is able to part with she is passing on to me.
As I was flipping through the pages I came across this one with that tried and true childhood question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” and I couldn’t believe what it said.
Notice the red arrows?? And the irony? 😉
I don’t actually remember ever wanting to be a pastor/”paster” but I’m pretty sure I wrote that down because my Daddy was one. My pulpit dreams only lasted for that school year though. Soon another dream crept in. One which would stay with me to this day.
Do you have a dream that needs to be dusted off?
Has it been sitting on that shelf for so long that you might not even recognize it as having once belonged to you.
What if you had a chance to take it down, wipe off that dust and give that dream another look?
And, what if Kurt Warner, former NFL Quarterback, helped you?
Maybe the responsibilities and challenges of life have kept you from pursuing your dreams and passions. You get jobs because they pay the bills, not because they are fulfilling. You are elbow-deep in laundry, changing diapers, school runs and PTA meetings.
When was the last time you asked yourself “am I just surviving or am I thriving?”
“What if you had a second chance at your dream career?”
This is the question which will be answered each week for one person in the new reality series “The Moment” on USA, premiering THIS THURSDAY (April 11th) at 10/9C.
Imagine getting to drop everything and have one more shot at pursuing your passion! That’s what “The Moment” is all about. The chance for a second chance!
I’m so thrilled to have the opportunity to promote such an incredible new series. The timing of this could not have been more perfect.
You see, once I realized I wouldn’t be pursuing a career as a “paster”, I discovered my true calling. And no, it wasn’t as the National Spelling Bee Champion! But life continued to move me in other directions and my dream got put up on the shelf where it began to collect dust. Recently, though, I’ve taken it down, dusted it off and I’m believing that it might just come true!
