Where Did My Dreams Go?…


When I was a little girl, I was so sure I was going to be a TV presenter. I made my sister’s life miserable with my fake shows, she was my crew, my hair and makeup artiste, my audience, my everything. I would sit in front of the mirror with my mother’s wooden spoon which doubled as my microphone and talk my heart out pretending I had a huge and adoring audience.

Fast forward twenty-something years later and I am definitely not a TV presenter! Maybe because I talk way too fast or maybe because I did not think I was cut out to be one, or I was too shy or… I have a million excuses but the fact is that i did not follow my dreams…

Where have your dreams gone? did you loose the nerve to follow them? did your family or friends think they weren’t cool enough? did marriage and kids cost you your dreams? or like me do you have a million excuses?

Here is the thing about dreams, they often times are too big for you to comprehend, and they will sound stupid to the people you might share them with but don’t give up on them just yet. Start by writing them down,  and never forget that whatever you set out to do is feasible all you need to do is to want it badly enough to make it happen.

So quit being a coward and take that first step today, make that call today, write that business proposal today, start that research today, there will always be excuses but if you persevere and say no to procrastination, you are already on your way.

Will I ever become a TV presenter?  Will I ever stop stuttering? Will I ever be bold enough to pursue a career in TV? The answer is YES!!! world, watch out because  ” The Marach Show”  just might happen.

Follow your dreams,who knows where they may lead you?

  4. I’ll be the Marach show’s number 1 fan cos I know it’ll be fun. Van Gogh once said “I dream of painting, then I paint my dream”. The critical thing is working the dream: taking positive affirmative steps towards the realisation of your dream. May God sanction your every step….
