If you want to be, then take the actions you would take if you already were. I want to be a writer, so I take pen in hand and move it across the page, filling it with the words that come into my mind. Will they all be published? Are they all lucid and valid? Probably not, but that can't be my concern. I'm not attached to being a published writer - I'm only taking the action that defines being a writer - writing.
What do you want to be? A dancer? Then dance. Does this mean that you'll be in a rock video or starring in a ballet? Maybe, maybe not. That's not the focus. The focus is to dance.
Do you want to be a teacher? Then teach. If you have children, teach them. If you're in a church group, teach them. Be a mentor, volunteer at a community center, discover other options, but teach!
Do you want to be a speaker? Take a course in public speaking, join the Toastmasters - take an action!
It is only through performing the actions of being what we want to be that we become exactly that...
Here's my creation for this challenge to start things off:
I wanted to try something different calligraphy/penmanship-wise and just do a wonky, but hopefully still sort of cool freehand sentiment with a white gel pen on black paper. The flowers are from who-knows-where, since they've been in my stash forever (except the small one - it's a Prima), and the paper is from DCWV's Old World Stack. A little stitching, a touch of ribbon - done!
What do you want to be? What actions will you take? What will you create for this challenge? Here's Mr. Linky so you can share:
