I Dreamed And I Achieved

I bought the Dream dainty necklace a couple of years ago when I started NP school. I thought the necklace looked cool, and I read about how the purchase supported transitioning individuals out of homelessness, which I thought was awesome.

When I got home, I went to the website and immediately realized how powerful this necklace was going to be for me. I wore the necklace sometimes months without taking it off. Every time I touched the key, I would be reminded of why I was killing myself in school and work, and I would mentally recommit to my dream!

I have been reluctant to pass the key on, knowing how much strength I have derived from it. However, it is time to pass the key onto my very good friend that will be changing careers, working full-time while attending school full-time and putting her family planning on hold to do so.

I hope that every time she wears the necklace she, too, will be reminded of how important our dreams are, and that she will carry hers out. When I was little, my mother would tell me, "You can be anything you want to be when you grow up, I have faith in you." So I dreamed and I achieved, and here's to hoping the same for others.
