Dreams and Things


I don't normally read articles I've written. I get nervous and embarrassed at the sight of them and then I get anxious that there could be some kind of typo. So, I don't usually read them, but you can if you want to. That's one reason I posted this- to let you know that you can find Women's Surf Style Magazine at Barnes & Noble, Walden Books and Hollister. I have a poem in there and a surf story called Sea Legs. 

The other reason I posted this, the main reason, isn't to brag (gosh I hope you don't think that's why); I posted this because I want you to know that you can follow your dreams too. I know, I know "Thank you Captain Obvious", right? Maybe you already know that. Maybe you already are. But, nevertheless, I just want to say-don't deny yourself what you want. Do your thing and don't look back. Even with the chaos of having multiple jobs, the tiny paychecks and the eye rolls from skeptics I'm still so glad I did mine.

  8. Way to go!!! I know exactly what you mean about not wanting to read your own articles. Next time I'm in Barnes & Noble, I am definitely checking it out!

    And thanks for this reminder. I have constantly had that inner-battle about going after my passions or doing the "safe" thing and I know you're right. Dreams do come true if we make them happen :)
