When I was a kid, I wanted to be everything. I wanted to be an actress, a talk show host, and of course, a rock star. Back then, I didn’t really know what it meant to follow your chickens dreams.
When I grew up and the rock star thing didn’t work out, I moved to Miami Beach, enrolled myself in some film classes, and decided I was gonna become a filmmaker. Eventually, I made my way to Hollywood, where I worked as a personal assistant and then became an administrative assistant at Lifetime Television.
I had a few copyediting gigs, produced a script reading, and ended up pitching a couple of reality shows to some important people. Alas, when all was said and done, the Hollywood thing didn’t really work out either. After about five years in Los Angeles, The First Man and I got married and moved to Bellingham, WA to start a family.
I didn’t regret how things turned out, but I confess that I sometimes felt a little empty when I thought about the dreams I once had. That is, until the day I held my first baby chick.
On that day, my new dream was born. And you know what? Because I followed my chickens dreams now I’m doing something I really love. I’m making YouTube videos! So I guess I became a filmmaker of sorts after all. Check out my new YouTube video Follow Your Chicken Dreams by clicking the play button below.
So there you have it. My dreams really did come true. And I hope yours do as well. <3
