Dreams are not as far fetched as you may think. Gillian laid in bed one night. For twenty years she dreamed about playing in an orchestra again. When Gillian was in high school, she loved how playing the violin made her feel inside. Gillian’s soul vibrated as the melody’s tone went up and down in pitch. Then, all came together in harmony with the other instruments. She dreamed one day of being a conductor, leading an orchestra with the state symphony.
As she got older, she dropped playing the violin. Her job was demanding as was her new family. Yet, every time she listened to classical music, her heart vibrated with joy. She got present in the moment, and her body was electrified inside and out.
Out of the blue, Gillian saw an ad for auditions for her state symphony scheduled to take place in 6 weeks. What if? What if I audition, she thought? What’s the worst that could happen?
Gillian stopped everything she was doing and searched for violin teachers in her area. After hearing Gillian’s enthusiasm and excitement, a local violin teacher agreed to take her on as a student if she agreed to the following: An hour long lesson twice a week and practice daily for an hour. She sat back for a moment in self-doubt. Can I really do this? Get ready to audition in 6 weeks? What about my job? What about my family?
Gillian’s family saw how much she became alive when she talked about this. She scheduled a housekeeper and had the family assist in cooking meals. Her desire to become part of the symphony became a family calling. They all rallied to support her.
Gillian became so focused at work that she was more productive in less time. Her boss was impressed and secretly cheering her on.
The big day came. It was audition day. Gillian was nervous yet knew she put all her effort in to the best of her ability. They called her name. She sat down, took a deep breath and played the best 2 minutes of a classical piece she’d played in her head for over 20 years. The judges immediately said – You’re in!
Gillian devoted one hour a day to her dream. Can you do this?
