Most people, when they reach middle-age, give up their dreams. They realize they'll never be a professional baseball player or President of the United States. The loss of that prospect often depresses them.
I am not most people. My attitude is, until they put me in a box, I can still strive toward happiness. I can still try to live my dreams, if only in an attentuated way.
This past weekend I went shopping with my friend Debbie. I enjoy being with Debbie and I suggested we drop by Hot Topic. Hot Topic is a mall-store for teenagers; it has silly jewelry, clothes and novelty items. I knew they sell pink tutus which aren't real dance-apparel but suffice for my purpose. I talked Debbie into joining me in buying a tutu. Laughingly, she did. We walked through the mall carrying matching pink tutus with a light heart. We smiled and giggled; it's amazing what a $12 piece of cheap polyester can do. :)
What dream do you harbor in your heart? Have you taken any steps to fulfill it?
