Dreaming

Do you still dream?  Do you let your mind wander to the future? or things you’d like to do?   I’ve never been much for making goals but i like to dream. I remember a good friend said to me in university, ” what are your goals with your degree?”  I had no answer for him.  I was there to get a teaching degree and after that i dreamed i’d get a job.   that wasn’t how it turned out.

after 24 years, though, i finally have a plan with my BA in Education.  I was sharing that plan with my friend last night over sweet potato fries and panzerotti when she looked at me and said, “You still dream, don’t you?”  Funny, i hadn’t thought about it that way, but yes, i suppose i still do.

There was a time when i couldn’t or didn’t dream.  It seemed when i did dream and things didn’t turn out how i thought they should, i’d become discouraged and pretty much just give up on that stuff.  Why dream and plan when things didn’t turn out, anyway.  But that’s such a defeatist attitude and it’s hard to live that way.   i know people that live like that and they’re no fun to be around.  so, i’ve decided to find a dream, map it out and follow it the best i can.

What about you?  do you dream?  even a little?  how about a dream about a trip?  or what about that course you’ve always wanted to take? do you dream about losing weight or a new hair style?   i want to encourage you to do it!  dream it!  and see what happens!  You might be pleasantly surprised with the outcome!
