Anthony Bourdain must have the best job in the world. Can you imagine what it would be like traveling around the world, eating exciting cuisine and writing about it? I love food, I love traveling and I love writing. What is your dream job? Are you living it?
One morning I woke up and looked at this half-finished home renovation project that I have been staring at for the past ten years and I realized I am so tired of talking about paint colors and paint brushes, floor tiles and shrubs that it was making me sick. I used to love to paint…the artsy kind, landscapes and portraits…now painting just means walls and doors and I have come to hate it. I used to love working in the garden, now the only thing left of my garden is weeds and dirt.
Remodeling has its price and sometimes, like me, you might ask yourself…are dreams of something better worth the price paid? Of course they are. We all have days when we are swallowing half empty glasses, when we look around us and realize that our dreams are taking longer than we expected, or that they have changed completely.
Don’t give up. Some of your dreams may change and some may take longer than you planned but ask yourself, what is the alternative? A world without dreamers would be very black and white.
Tell me, what are your dreams? I would love to help them come true if I can! Enjoy your week
