Sometimes I will read something that I so connect with that I just have to comment on it. After reading the article "Am I a Dancer Who Gave Up?" by
Shawn Lent. I was reminded how important it is for each of us to find our special niche in this world. I have been very introspective since reading
It seems to me the more flexible we are the more likely we will find it. We all pursue dreams along the way where some come true and others we have to
discard. Finding our niche requires us to be brave explorers. The unknown land lies within us! There are always people along the way trying to sell us
their vision and redirect us from our goals.
In my life, I have found myself in what I considered to be very comfortable niches, only to discover they were temporary. Not wrong but just
temporary. Those moments of epiphany often stirred significant uncomfortableness. Cries of "what am I doing here" and "what do I do now?" "Change is
the only thing that is permanent" became my nemesis.
I believe the success of our dreams lies within. When we find ourselves living our dreams for the benefit of others is when we can experience real
fulfillment. Without the vision for others our dreams can become nightmares. When we reduce our dreams to just making money or to feel good about
ourselves we depend on a fickle audience and a fickle market place.
I believe our dreams should help others to fulfill their dreams.When they do, we have found our niche!
