If You Can Dream It You Can Do It

If You Can Dream It You Can Do It

When I was born I choose a family from Europe but I don't remember why. 

It was in Finland but the last name Lovin might have had something to do with it. 

On a cold December morning, I cried out, whoa, where am I?

Helsinki is the capital of Finland, and I was the third child with a brother and sister who had survived the war. 

After the Second World War, my parents emigrated to Sudbury Canada to find a better lifestyle. 

I had a difficult time adjusting to life as a human. 

When I was less than two years old I had a feeling that I had superpowers. 

We lived on the second floor of an apartment and I wanted to try out my superpowers.


I pulled a chair up to the window and flew outside but as I hit the pavement below I must have been in a lot of pain. 

I was upset but that didn't stop me from trying something else.

On my third birthday I was acting up again near the stove and I pulled down a pot of boiling water onto my leg. 

Five weeks in the hospital getting skin grafts to my leg and I finally thought that my superpowers were useless in this lifetime. 

Does anyone remember getting your tongue stuck on a cold metal object?

The next winter I was sliding down a hill and fell down so that my tongue was sandwiched between my teeth and yes I have that scar on my tongue.

When I was 5 years old and it was December I wanted to go sliding down a hill. 

I jumped on a toboggan to experience the freedom of being alive.

 I wasn't counting on hitting a tree with my head at the bottom of the hill.

Not too much damage except for a fractured skull. 

I was in the hospital for 3 weeks and I have the scar on my forehead.

Looking back at my punishment I think it was a way to knock some sense into me. 

Like, wake up you're not superman, get used to life without superpowers...

However, when I was 7 years old a bunch of neighborhood kids went swimming in a nearby lake. 

I got in over my head in some deep water and I realized that I was in a dangerous situation.

You should have seen me using my superpowers as I learned how to swim real fast. 

I finally made it old age without landing back into a hospital.

My Journey to Love

We lived on the outskirts of the city without any traffic or street lights. 

I was always looking up at the stars in awe and wondering about the immense Universe out there. 

I went to the local University to study physics and chemistry and as soon as I graduated I went on a trip to my native Finland. 

I met a girlfriend there and we drove up to the northernmost part of Lapland, the land of the midnight sun.

I didn't end up married to her but to another Finnish girl in Sudbury Canada. 

We had three beautiful daughters and they are all married with their own children.

After coming back from Finland I worked at the local mining company and took an early pension to pursue a career as a professional photographer.

If You Can Dream It

I had a dream to be a good photographer.

That same year my marriage ended in a divorce. The thing that got me through this time of stress and emotion was my daily habit of meditation.

I finally got my photography business going and in 2010, I was awarded the Photographer of the Year in commercial photography in Canada. 

My dream came true! I was passionate about taking pictures since I was about 12 years old.

This made me realize the power of dreams. 

I retired from my photography business in 2012 and started to have a dream of being an author. 

When I begin to write my mind gives me greater ideas than it had before starting to write.

I call it magic or just a little bit of those superpowers finally coming to me... 

Here I am now realizing that dreams come true. 

Walt Disney’s advice to you is this, “if you can dream it you can do it.” 

Key Take-Aways

The soul decides your parents and your life’s dream. 

You should not yell at your parents that you didn’t want them as parents, it was your choice.

Follow that dream that keeps knocking on your mind. 

There is a passion and a life’s journey for each person. 

Meditate and give energy to your dreams.
