Living As If

“When you live as if what you want is already your reality, you gain a whole new perspective on your life.” Arielle Ford

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a flight attendant. We traveled a lot when I was a kid. By the time I was 14, I had already been on over 10 trips. I remember watching the crew in awe, as they walked through the airport. I loved their uniforms. The women especially looked so glamourous with their slicked back hair, high heels and kind smiles. I remember wanting to be a flight attendant so badly. It’s all I dreamed of. I used to pretend I was a flight attendant in high school. The picture attached, is of me on a school trip, pretending to close overhead bins on a plane! 

By age 14, I had already memorized my own version of onboard announcements. I remember on that trip, the kind bus driver actually let me use the PA system and we all pretended we were really on an airplane and I was the flight attendant. We all had a good laugh as I went down the aisle of the Grey Hound bus telling everyone to put their seats in an upright position. I then went around and served juice and water.
9 years later at the age of 23, I got hired with Air Canada and my dream was officially realized.
I will never forget the moment of my first flight, as I walked down the aisle and closed REAL airplane overheard bins,..It was a surreal moment of pure pride, gratitude and joy for me.
It was then I realized the power of visualization. I guess you could say I had being using “The Secret” and the law of attraction without even realizing it.
I now have been flying for 13 years. I still love my job, but I do believe in growth and as Oprah Winfrey says “Dream a bigger dream.”
Because I believe that dreams come true, I have now finished my Life Coach training program and graduate December 6th.
Because I used visualization once before, I am now using it for other new dreams of mine….. like being interviewed on t.v. about my coaching (I’ve already practiced a fake interview lol), speaking in front of groups of people and writing my own book to name a few.
Dreams do come true. So dream big.
Action Steps:
What dream have you been longing to manifest?

Have fun with it,..visualize it and feel it into being!
Affirm: I am now living the life of my dreams, and I am so grateful.
Since writing this blog, an online interview has already happened for me. I was a guest on the “Full Potential Show” with James Rick. Check out the interview here.
