It’s probably not shocking to anyone that knows me personally that Princess was at the top of my list.  The princes in the world were a little too young for me.  We had too much of an age difference.  Surely that is the only reason that I am not a princess or lack of trying to be one is probably a lot more of the reason.  Maybe I could have found one if I had actually tried.  Truth be told, I found my prince a long time ago.  He just doesn’t have a real title. 

I guess where I was meaning to go with this, is that it’s really important to follow your dreams.  It’s okay to fail.  If you don’t try then you may be left with regret.  Heck, you may try and still be left with regret, but at least you know that you made a good attempt.  I am working on a lot of those dreams this year.  One of which is to write something of significance.  I started this blog to force myself to write.  Lately I have been trying to write stories.  I appreciate my friends who have said kind words about them, but I know they need a lot of work.  I guess I am trying to find my style, my genre…Whatever it is, I will keep trying, because it is so important to follow your dreams.  As I have said before, I don’t want to live with regret.  Recently I submitted a starter story to Cameron Garriepy.  She is an amazing writer.  She has posted my starter story on her blog today and I am jumping for glee!  Please check it out and let me know what you think.  While you are there, please check out her stories and buy one of her books.  She’s phenomenal and reminds me to keep striving each day.  Who do you want to be when you grow up?
