Thank you! An answer to a dream

Last Update: August 27, 2016

Hello my WA Family.

Yes, after 7 days, I do consider you my family.

I appreciate that I have distant cousins within the WA family I haven't met yet. That's ok.

I come from a REALLY big family and while I have a whole tribe of aunts and uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews that I'm really, really close with, there are others I don't know at all.

But I digress...

First of all: THANK YOU! Every one of you, whether we are currently ships passing in the night, or whether we have communicated, PM'd, answered questions and cheered each other along.

You have changed the course of my life.

I take this seriously. For anyone who has read my profile, you know that I'm a dreamer. I seriously believe in having dreams. It gives me a focus, something to work toward.

About 10 days ago, at a rough time in my life, I realized that I'd stopped dreaming.

To me, that was almost like death. I was so consumed by running two businesses, that on the surface and in the media, seem super successful. The reality was that we are barely getting by. Welcome to the mom/pop shops of tourism in the Caribbean.

This whole Zika virus that has been absolutely blown out of proportion by the media, and it has killed us.

So I was absolutely stressed. I was incredibly depressed. My relationship with my boyfriend, who by the way I spend 24/7 with and have for the past 7 years, was so frayed by the financial stress we were facing, that it's amazing we can actually still live together.

But then I realized that I had been so busy working my A@@ off, and so stressed about money, and unbelievably exhausted - mentally, physically, spiritually and financially, that I forgot I was a dreamer.

So one night, in desperation, I realized I had to dream again.

I have so many dreams.

Some people call them their bucket list - but personally, any mention of kicking the bucket (or basically death), before I realize every passion I could possibly have is just not acceptable to me.

I don't want to do things because I might die.

I want to do things because I'm gloriously alive and I want to experience life to the fullest!!

As far as I'm concerned, I'm dead if I don't follow my dreams.

And believe me 10 days ago, I was dead.

WA has changed that. You have no idea how much WA has changed that.

Tonight, I'm so filled with ideas, excitement, and passion for what I've just gotten myself into.

It feels as if I've just fallen in love. I can't think of anything else. All my time is spent on this. I feel ALIVE. So very ALIVE.

In the past week my ranking has moved from what, 47,000 to 1060 ( as I write this). How the hell is that possible?

It's possible because I've just found the outlet for which so many of my passions converge.

I LOVE to write. But I haven't written ANYTHING other than social media, marketing promotions for our businesses in the last 7 years.

I LOVE marketing.

I LOVE learning.

I LOVE creativity.

I LOVE making money.

So here I am. Somehow I found WA, which I had never even heard of until 8 days ago.

But it was in dreaming, that I found you all.

In understanding that I am a woman who absolutely needs to have dreams and in manifesting them, I found you.

Crazy how that works, huh?

I'm not a religious woman. I am very spiritual. I believe in throwing things out to the universe and trusting that I will be led.

And once again, the Universe has proven itself.

So once again, THANK YOU!

Let's all keep dreaming - cause it's going to be freaking amazing!

With much love and gratitude,

Deb

Thank YOU, Harvey. You are part of the solution. By following people and being engaged, I'm building more than financial freedom, I'm building my WA tribe. So thanks for being part of it.
