My friend Rosie who is beautiful, smart, funny, and a very talented musician said she wanted to drop out of college and move to Seattle to pursue her music career. Talk about pursuing your big dreams fully.
When she first told me her plans to drop out and move to Seattle I was excited for her to take on such an immense challenge and pursue her dream so early.
She asked me to take some photos of her for promotional and marketing material. So, on my first photoshoot ever I took pictures of her and learned how to use my camera and work with a model all in one go. Then, when she came back from Seattle to visit, I took more pictures for her. Here they are:
I recently had the opportunity to ask Rosie a few questions about her dreams and she had some very insightful responses.
What is your Big Dream?
My big dream is to find happiness in making a career out of everything I am passionate about. like music, and entertainment, and humor, and style, and fun. Because you don’t find anyone who hates laughing, music, or looking great. So why not make a dream come true through providing all of that for as many people as possible?
So, God willing, I will be guided toward what I need to do first, and when, and where.
But most of all, my big dream is to never stop dreaming. Because, what’s worse than everything being over?
Too true. So then, do you have any fear in chasing your dream? And if so, where does that fear come from?
The only fear I have is forgetting what is important in the midst of it all. That I lose sight or grasp on who and what is important to my heart, whether its God or family or friends or relationships.
I fear selfishness. Happiness often goes hand in hand with complacency, which is alright in certain situations but not life as a whole.
Rosie is now back in school because the structure helps her focus on getting thing done. Without it, she would, like most of us, sleep in late and never get around to doing what mattered. She is still doing her music very successfully (she just had a gig last month) and continuing to pursue her dream.
She still uses the pictures I took of her as her promotional photos, which is awesome. I am really happy I could help out and even more excited that she is enjoying herself while still getting her degree.
Rosie sends me updates about her life and her dreams and is still planning to cut me a big check when she’s big and famous. Lucky me.Now go own the world.
