I grew up singing and acting. Musicals were my heart beat. The score. The costumes. The story. Everything.
It has been awhile since I have been so inspired by a musical soundtrack.
The Greatest Showman literally has given me all the goosebumps and heart eyes. I am obsessed and I haven’t even seen the movie yet. Ha!
Perhaps it is because nearly every song speaks to this heart of mine as I choose adventure and dreams over neat and tidy.
I was taking a break from doting on a sick child yesterday and scrolled Facebook (I know…..) and I saw a post where women were lamenting how there would be no Christmas for them because they were broke. And stuck. And tired of feeling that way.
I have a lot of opinions about Christmas and money, but that is not what this is about.
My heart broke because there are a lot of people who are feeling this way.
Not sure where to step next. Or what to do. Or how to get out of the pit they find themselves in.
I think why I am so in love with the storyline and music of The Greatest Showman is because it is about a man who is down and out and tired of struggling, and decided to put feet to his dreams, as crazy and illogical as it appeared. As much as people disapproved and hated what he was doing, he still did it, and it changed his life.
Changed his family’s life.
Changed others who were needing that kind of hope and encouragement and permission to dream for themselves.
With my new hair business, I know people don’t approve. But I go forth knowing it can change my life, and offer permission to other women to dream and have a business of their own. No, I don’t think Shampoo will change the world. Or your family.
But I Believe you can. And you will. Women will.
To create their own stories for their families and get out of the pit they may find themselves in.
Where are you? Are you struggling? Are you sick and tired of being in the same cycle, year after year, wishing it could get better, but it doesn’t?
Here is the thing: you have to decide to move. To change. Go there. Dream HUGE, crazy, illogical dreams.
Then go put feet on those dreams. Give them legs. YOU are the one who can make them reality. Your actions, your very steps and decisions will help them come alive.
Can I invite you to go there with me? To dream big? To join me?
“It’s all an adventure that comes with a breath-taking view….”-Tightrope from the Greatest Showman Soundtrack.
Think about your dreams. Go listen to the soundtrack. Share with me your dreams.
And then let’s go.
