"A goal is a dream with a deadline."
~ Napoleon Hill
Being of a practical nature, I've never been too much of a dreamer. To me, dreams aren't reality - they're simply dreams. I'm more goal-oriented, because I believe in deadlines and in reality. Most of my life revolves around goals and not dreams; however, that's not to say that I don't have any dreams.
One of my dreams has always been to be in a magazine.
This past summer, I joined a leadership group, and through that, I was encouraged to take on some challenges. One of those challenges was finally finishing the Future of Fitness application for Oxygen magazine. I'd started the application last year, but didn't take the time to finish it (it's long!). With a group of motivated women encouraging and gently pushing me, I completed the application and sent it off to Oxygen.
I received two emails from Oxygen, confirming facts and information about me, so I was cautiously optimistic that my application had been accepted.
Yesterday, I heard through a friend on Twitter that I am in the December issue!!
|How cool is this?!?!|
I'm still on cloud nine and can't believe that one of my dreams has actually come true!
