I didn’t discover the Manifesto until I found I was already living it. For me, it was such a validating document for the course of my life. A little over a year ago, I saw this poster floating around a few of my friends’ Facebook walls. They were looking to it for inspiration to leave their dead end jobs or get inspired to follow their dreams after years of school. My journey was a little bit different. After years of part time jobs in customer service, administrative support, small acting gigs and other nefarious employ, I found myself a writer and director with a creative video production company in Fresno (Windsong Productions). My reaction to the Manifesto was that it validated the journey that brought be through a collection of odd jobs to the career I feel I was meant for. The Manifesto reinforced the notion that my dreams were in fact now coming true and that it was OK to dream bigger now.
