If you were to guess what an independent musicians’ biggest and wildest dream would be, what would you guess?
– Get signed to a major label?
– Win a grammy?
– Travel the world performing a major stadium tour with Taylor Swift?!
Well sorry to burst your little gum drop, but those dreams aren’t mine!!!
At least, they are not in my top #2…
So, what’s left then?
Since I began playing music ten years ago, I’ve had one single dream that I think about on a daily basis. I’ve always felt in my heart that one day it will come true, it’s just a matter of time, patience and perseverance – as with the achievement of most dreams!! Ok Ok you’ve been waiting long enough.
Drum roll please!
MY BIGGEST WILDEST DREAM OF ALL TIME IS:
To meet Ellen Degeneres!!!!
I love that lady. I’ve never met her, but I truly love her. She has made this world a better place a thousand times over with her jokes, dancing, and laughter. She changes lives on a daily basis and it’s just so darn inspiring to see all of the selfless energy that she puts fourth into the work she’s doing.
I admire her so much. She is my biggest hero. I would feel so humbled and honoured if I had a chance to meet and perform for her! Just imagine me and Pearl the camper doing a house concert in her home — or on her show for her audience! 😱😱
I truly want to try and give her back a tiny piece of my heart that she has filled up so full since she started changing lives all over the world – including my own. Ohh my life would be complete!!!
Ok now for my second biggest dream of all time:
🏡 To own a home! 🏡
I know this one is pretty basic but for independent musicians like myself, sometimes it can feel completely out of reach. That’s why I am SO excited to announce that I have actually started the search to find my very first home and my dream is already underway!
OMGahhhh! Thats huge news my friends. HUGE!
I can hardly believe it but here I am.. Being all adulty and stuff. 😍
The ultimate goal with my first home is to find a cabin-like space in the woods. A place that is calm, cozy and inviting, where I can do all of my writing. I would turn a room into my home recording studio, where I can record my Gift of Songs and future acoustic albums.
Alsooo…. if I end up being able to build a little cabin on my property, I could host creative writing retreats/rentals for anyone interested to spend a weekend at the cabin, or with me, to learn the craft of performing & songwriting.
Now THAT would be heaven!
My life would feel 100% complete if I were able to accomplish both of these dreams. So so epic.
I feel that I am getting closer! Onwards with one step at a time, one day at a time!
Care to share your wildest dreams with the world?
Leave a comment below!
The first step that I personally take towards accomplishing a dream is to write it down and visualize it with as many details that my brain could possibly handle. I allow my mind to explode with colours and smells and sights and sounds of what could be the moment I achieve my dream! Think of it like manifesting — but also know that a lot of hard work has to be put fourth in order for dreams to come true.
pssst… I’ll be near the water cooler and the wild dreamers.
I would like to encourage YOU to be a wild dreamer with your own goals, and start taking small steps to make them come true! Share your greatest dreams below and put it out there to the universe to get the ball rolling. Remember, one foot in front of the other.
As always if you’ve read this far, THANK YOU for being here and witnessing my journey and my own wildest dreams!
