Dreams and Detours is a show about the life we thought we were going to have vs the one we are living. We all have a story. I share mine and I speak to others about following their dreams, or getting derailed entirely. And then getting back up again.

Life is hard and messy and joyful. The choices we make in our 20's and 30's are not always the ones we want to stick with in our 40's or 50's. Inevitably we come to crossroads, more often than not. If we let fear hold us back, the result can be tremendous dissatisfaction. But if we take the leap toward our dreams, well then, the adventure really begins.

Being resilient, turning inward and toward our own instincts is the gift we are getting from this disruptive experience. Be mindful of how you are investing your time and energy. Be kind to yourself.
