This is one of my favorite topics…Dreams. I think it is safe to assume that we ALL had childhood dreams about something. I believe a childhood dream says a lot about ones true self, because children have no boundaries set on themselves and think and say exactly what is inside them.
So, today’s PowWow is all about….“What did you want to BE when you grew up?”
And of course, did you follow that dream or go down another path?
Mine was definitely not to be a makeup artist. I always thought I wanted to become a prima ballerina, which I talked about in this 25 Things About Me post from exactly a year ago. However, my love of makeup was actually a part of this dream, bc one of the main reasons I loved dancing and being on stage, was because of all of the makeup you were required to wear so the audience could see your FACE from the stage! Dancing is such an art form and I’ve always found it fascinating how professional dancers can interpret music and emotion with their body and create beautiful images without a paint brush or a word. I need to pick up an adult ballet class and see if this 35 year old body still has it in me to strap on a pair of toe shoes…ouch. It’s never too late follow your dream right??!
On a side note – did you see Black Swan? Yes, it was disturbing as all get out (I hid my eyes for half of it), but Natalie Portman sure was fascinating. Oh, and the demented Black Swan makeup was pretty amazing….
Alright ladies, PowWow time! What did YOU want to be when you grew up? Did you make it happen, are you still working on it, or did you go another direction?
