Dare To Dream About What Comes Next

My sister always used to talk about wanting life to be like a Fairly Tale. Her 2 children (now grown) are amazing people with big hearts and smart minds who care more about others than themselves. While she had a great hand in raising them to be who they are, so did their father. Tragedy struck their family 3 years ago, in June, when my sister's husband and their father passed away unexpectedly. Their lives changed in an instant... they were devestated.

My sister struggled greatly - they were married for 30 years... 30 YEARS! She had to figure out not just to live with a hole in her heart and without him, but how to do all thing little parts of daily life he managed (you know taking out the trash, mowing the lawn, paying the cable bill). It was really hard on her, but she tried her hardest. We used to talk about taking life in 5 minutes increments to get through the hour... slowly it became about getting through the day... then the weekend... and then the week and so on.

While she is now able to look back on their lives and realize it wasn't perfect - she knows they had something special. How does one top that - they think about the next chapter of the Fairy Tale. So my Giving Key to her is DREAM.

I am challenging her to dare to dream about what comes next - not to compromise because it feels hard and to keep believeing in her dream and live her Fairy Tale!

  • I receive my key with the word inspire on it just before the holidays this year December 2016. 2016 has been the hardest year of my life. After completing my victorious battle with breast cancer, my beautiful 29-year-old son suddenly passed away and life as we know it changed forever. My word is inspire. In the midst of my tragedy, in the mist of my sorrow, I also became superintendent of the school district that I have worked for for 25 years. Inspire has become our vision. All of us are working to be inspiring, to be inspired and to be inspirational. I am passing my key to one of my beloved son’s best friend Corey. Corey is taking the challenge to move away from friends and family to further his career. He’s an incredible young man who not only my son but my entire family has admired. He’s an inspiration to us. I’m passing the key to him so that as he starts his new job and his new life he can inspire others like Matthew would want him to. Corey I’m counting on you to pay it forward.
