Dreams don’t die

Greetings,

Okay, I apologize for this one up front. I know what you’re going to say, “Ah Crap! More bozo philosophy.” What can I tell ya, it’s hot outside. You sit around contemplating your navel too long and these are the things that come to mind. So, today’s topic is “Unrealized Dreams.”

As a kid what did you want to be when you grew up? You don’t need to answer that. It’s none of my business. But, what were the things you pictured yourself doing that somehow you never got to do? More importantly, what are the things you dreamt of as a child that have stayed with you into adulthood? That place that, even today, when you relax the reins on your mind and let it wander where it wants it always seems to wind up there? These are the dreams that need attention.

Maybe we can’t do them the way we once could have. Let’s face it, in youth we’re limited by time and necessity, and in age we’re limited by ability and mobility. But, that doesn’t mean the dream dies. It just needs a little tweaking. Adjust it to better fit your current circumstances. Instead of a childhood dream, make it a grownup dream.

Or, if the dream is something that is simply not possible for you to do maybe you can experience a taste of fulfillment by helping someone else to realize it. After all, a taste of a brownie is way better than a dream of a brownie.

Okay fine, I’ll hush now. Have a good day.

Contemplatively,

Tim Couch
