Last night I watched Susan Boyle onstage at the live X Factor Australia TV show recording. She was nervous, humble and funny. I love Susan Boyle because people thought she was kidding herself and it turns out she wasn’t.
I love her because she is the living antidote to the Kardashian family. Su Bo is famous because she has a genuine singing talent and at the ripe old age of 47 she got off her arse and did something about making her dreams come true. I love her dry Scottish sense of humour, and the fact that she lives on her own and has never married. Susan Boyle prayed that one day her wish would come true. I love her because she gives me hope; the hope that if you work hard at your dream you’ll be rewarded. Eventually.
Yes she sometimes reminds me of the scary aunt that all children grow up with; the relative whom your parents want to visit, who offers you lollies in exchange for sitting on her knee and giving you a slobbery kiss.
But I have a dream my life could be…
Mine is to do nothing but write all day without having to supplement my income doing anything else.
What is your dream?
P.S. I think Susan Boyle may have mimed last night, but I can’t be sure.
