“You have to dream before your dreams can come true.”~ Abdul Kalam
This is Laila, from Norway.
Her story is fantastic. Probably the best story I’ve told so far!
She is one hardcore fan of Céline Dion. I mean, its quite obvious from the photo of her here.
Céline Dion however, has left her grazing pasture to go back to her home land and perform in Montreal this evening, on the 27th of July.
Laila became so excited when she heard the news months ago. She planned her vacation with her husband to go to Canada so she could attend the concert, and maybe … JUST MAYBE …. get her chance to finally meet her personal idol.
I remember her struggling while making the decision to go to Canada. Laila had always dreamed of Céline to come to Norway, or some other European country that was close enough and that Laila would finally get her wish.
Laila says that she has been a fan for the past 25 years. Céline’s career started just over 30 years ago. So she’s been a fan for a VERY VERY LONG TIME. Almost a life time!!!
Soon, Laila could do nothing but count down the days from when she would travel from Norway all the way to Canada. She would wear her t-shirt to promote her campaign to meet her idol. And apparently has had a wonderful time in Montreal.
Did you see it??
Again, look for Laila in her white t-shirt. Particularly around the 1:00 mark.
HER DREAM CAME TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!
I didn’t know about it until this morning. It was incredible that I just about cried because I could just imagine how she felt. It had to have been pretty close to the feelings I had when I first got to meet SIX MINUTE CENTURY.
I do not know where this is, I do not know who took the video, all I know is that I could see her in the video, and I nearly screamed.
And I think that I became so happy for her, because I had been hearing for the longest time of OTHER so-called “hardcore fans” saying to me that it would never happen. Just because she was from Norway.
And I thought that was bullshit.
So yes, I’m behind Laila 100% on this. And you know what? Laila never gave up. She fought and fought and fought and kept dreaming. And it paid off for her.
Meanwhile, those same “fans” who said to me personally that it would never happen, are still waiting for it to happen to them.
Laila was smart enough to be vigilant and NEVER surrender, and NEVER give up. I admire Laila for having the courage to do just that….. never give up on her dreams. Even though she was surrounded by people who were telling her no.
We all could learn a lesson from Laila. About holding on to our dreams.
She even wrote about it in her own blog. Although I am sure she was pretty excited and still buzzing with feelings when she composed it.
From reading this, it sounds like she knew better to listen to those who were negative.
Good for her.
Ladies & Gentlemen: NO MATTER WHAT THEY ARE, NEVER EVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS!!!!!!!!!!
