If You Don’t Go After…


”If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer will always be no. If you don’t step forward, you will always be in the same place.”




My Dream Reader

My dream reader would be my grandma. She was the first person I thought of when I read through this assignment. Although she is no longer with us, I would have loved to know her thoughts on my blog.

I was quite young when she passed away, I remember hearing Aretha Franklin’s Natural Woman and it has stuck with me to this day.  I automatically think of my grandma when this song is played. I am aware this song is about a different kind of love, however the lyrics truly do describe the affect she has on me in a nutshell. I can’t even begin to describe the sudden rush of emotions that just came over me whilst listening to this song.

She was a kind, understanding, genuine and caring woman. I admire her determination and she has inspired me to strive for a better life. My grandma was the definition of a woman of many talents; she was known for her hand embroidery, cooking and gardening. I would love to be at least half the women she was! Her memory will always live on within my family.
