What Dreams Are Made Of...
Yah, I admit that I dream BIG sometimes and hope that I will strike it rich playing the lottery but in all honesty, I can't win if I don't play, right? Well, I rarely play! However, I think about what it would be like to come into some sizable amount of cash. Part of me feels relieved that I would no longer have to watch where pennies go, that I could pay off the house, buy what I wanted without second guessing myself, and could walk into any restaurant and order what I really wanted instead of eliminating high priced items off the list right away. I would travel a whole lot more than I do now (and once did!); I would provide for people who I care about or treat them to nicer things.
So, I live my dreams every single day! I work hard to maintain simplicity in my life that is most fitting for me. I am not an extremist though. I just try to find enjoyment in the simple, sometimes mundane, chores of life that must be done. Having the freedom to listen to the birds chirp and banter on, going for a walk, and watching sunsets are all my little dreams. I think that if you are able to look around you and can appreciate, I mean truly appreciate, what you have you are living your dreams. You have what you have NOW because that is what was intended for you. You do what you do NOW because that is what was intended for you. Those who are in your life NOW are people who you are supposed to have in your life.
While dreaming big is fun and exciting (so cliche sounding!) stop and recognize your little dreams. Maybe once you do, you won't want to focus so much on those big dreams!
