I was asked to be in a workshop of a new musical at NYU and I sang in a charity Christmas concert on the Lower East Side.
It felt amazing to do what I love…

I’ve always been a dreamer… if I imagine something in my head, I don’t mind working hard to make it happen even if it seems crazy (#PSPfit is a good example of that lol). I have new dreams which is exciting, but there are still old dreams of mine that I’m not ready to let go of, even if they’re more complicated.
If any of you are plus size performers, you know how hard it can be. I touched on that in “Fat Girl Flashback: You Can’t Play That Part“. Unfortunately, dreams of performing often lay in the hands of casting directors and agents. The casting agents I met often felt that my weight overshadowed my talent. Ouch.
With the New Year coming, I’ve been thinking a lot about my dreams and goals. I have a few things I’m passionate about I need to figure out which of them I absolutely have to go after.
I’ve been asking myself: What do I want? What have I given up on? What am I afraid of?
Tough questions that definitely won’t be answered in one blog post, but I feel like I have to start remembering my dreams and using them to make a roadmap for my life… *sigh* growing up is hard!
Do you have dreams you’ve put on hold? Or dreams you’re revisiting?
