MasterChef 4

I figured I needed to stop putting obstacles in my own path and stop listening to all the, "Why would you do that?" and just start living my life as God intended it to be.  So with that thought, I finally got enough courage to try out for the MasterChef 4 show.  Even if I don't make it past a preliminary judge trying my plate of food, I know I tried. 

I think of all the great inventors in our past times and current times and think, "Yeah that could of been me. " So I'm going to start taking my advice I give to my kids and the world, "If you dream it you can achieve it." I've even gone one step further and am researching local cooking contest. 

When I look at current contestants Monti and Christine, they doubted they could be on the show and now they are top 5.  I don't have a fancy story to follow me, except that I'm the proud daughter of two immigrant parents from Guatemala, who worked multiple jobs, put me through Catholic School and only dreamed of me being more than they could have ever dreamed.

I want to be an example to my kids.  I want them to know that where there is a will there are possibilities.  No one can ever say you can't do something.  If we believed everything everyone thinks of us we would never be successful in life and we would never experience the next big thing in our life.

At some point we have to try to do new things till we discover what it is we were meant to do with our lives. Don't wait for possibilities to happen, make them happen now.  We are the captain of our own dream boat, no one else!
