I told my mother about this goal of mine months ago. As I’m an adult now, I figured it would just be a conversation about silly things I’d like to do. It turns out she signed me up for and paid for lessons for me to take over the summer as a birthday present.
Moral of the story: tell people things like this. Perhaps they will be inspired to help you, even if you think they won’t. And if they are not inspired to help you, maybe you’ll inspire them to do something THEY always wanted to do. Talking to people who really care about you never hurts.
