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!
