I Dreamed a Dream


"Life's real failure is when you do not realize
how close you were to success when you gave up."
---Someone Wise

I might be the only person who hadn't seen this clip of Susan Boyle singing. Just in case you've missed it, you must click on her name to link to her performance. It demonstrates that dreams come true in spite of realities. We can't give up on them too soon.

I cried when I saw that a few days ago. Amazing. I need a dream. My life has changed so dramatically from what I expected that I don't have a back up plan. I have one year til my nest is empty. I better get to work.

I'm "over the moon" as they say in the U.K. with Susan's voice. Britian's Got Talent is so much more honest than American Idol. They showcase REAL people with acne, bad teeth and a few too many rolls. Beauty comes in strange shapes and sizes. HooRay for the Brits.

She is awesome! (I posted a bit about her yesterday.)

Regarding your quote from "someone wise" -- it's not easy to keep at something when all you get is negative reaction --- where does that strength come from?

I almost cried when I saw this. It gave me hope that I still have time for dreams.
