One of the most perplexing questions in six months of daily "What If" emails turned out to be "What if...you could make one dream come true? Which one matters the most to you?"
It's a straightforward question that makes women squirm. Many intelligent, successful women couldn't answer the question and some were afraid to try.
Everyone has hopes and dreams. Sometimes we trade childish dreams for adult pursuits. Sometimes we are coerced into it by well-meaning parents or spouses. Sometimes life happens and our most cherished dreams are stolen from us without our consent.
Do you remember a time when you didn't stop yourself from imagining? A time when you believed anything was possible?
Is your story one of a dream realized or a dream deferred?
