The Lyrical Dreamer
Because all dreams matter!!!
I have dreams. I have talent. I have passion. Yet. I fell into the rat trap. I left school at the young age of 14 years old and started working part-time in construction. Mostly doing concrete work. After 20 years of backbreaking labor, I felt trapped. I would give these employers my every waking minute. Go home and barely have time with my family. Struggle to pay bills. Don’t own my home. My car was a pile of rust that was usually broken. I was exhausted, both body and mind, and felt like a failure. Especially when I knew my children would follow the same path. I desperately need a change. I remember the day vividly. I was at my boring, dead end factory job. Just Feeling like I was useless and expendable. Like if I left that day, they would replace me by the end of the week. I knew I was just a number to them. I was simply a tool for them to make profit. I made a decision that day, which would change me forever. I decided that on that day that I would build my dreams. I encourage all to do the same. One of my favorite quotes “ We are created in God’s image. God is a creator. We are meant to create.” You are an amazing creature. Capable of infinite possibilities.
