Coming to America. How to Realise an Impossible Dream.

My grandmother, a Second World War survivor, used to say, “Shoot for the moon…”

Granny always encouraged us to have aspirations for a better life and to have a stellar mindset. “Shoot for the moon, as even if you miss, you will be among the stars,” she would say.

Our granny believed in us and so we started believing in ourselves as well. She was an Alpha female and was instrumental in influencing and motivating her granddaughters to have higher demands of life. She was a woman of higher awareness. She didn’t have much in life, but she wanted a better future for her beloved granddaughters.

Let me share with you, when someone tells you that your dream is impossible, it means that it is worth pursuing.

My inner hope was sprouting on the surface. My inner spirit was seeking higher expression. I dared to dream, I dared to create a vision bigger than my circumstances. The world is large and small at the same time. So, I started looking for the key to unlock that bigger world.

What I understood was that if you really want something, you can get it, as long as you pay the price.

Bear in mind that at the time, my dream seemed impossible and extremely hard to reach. I had shot for the stars and reached them. However, the fact that I managed to fulfil my dream doesn’t make me better or more special than you. You are the creator of your life as well. We all are.
