I have a dream

Not just Martin Luther King had a dream. Dreams are free and this concept stays in my mental back pocket 24/7. My dream to get the commercial part did not come true. Half the fun of the week was to dream that I got the part (that came with a ginormous paycheck) and to mentally donate, indulge, and spend all that money. When God closes a door he opens a window, well in this case, he cracked a window. I received a message from Empowered Peace,  a blog that I follow, and “liked” on Facebook because of its inspiring spiritual messages. Unbeknownst to me, Empowered Peace held a drawing for $100 for those who "liked" it on Facebook. Guess who won? Me! It‘s my prize of the week!
The result of Balance Challenge #2?
Stepping out my comfort zone to be part of the Reader’s Theatre at church was a great experience. We practiced last night and I felt good going into it this morning, although clammy handed and a tad nervous. Because I stepped outta my comfort zone, I made new friends and feel stretched in a good way. I am well-balanced (for now) because I exited the comfort zone. Did you?

I like your attitude!

Sorry you didn't get the commercial, but who knows if something else, even better, will happen? Congrats on winning the drawing.

Hugs,
Kat
