It's the Little Things: Dreaming

Jeff has been in Jamaica for the past week with a nonprofit that travels around the world, bringing lacrosse to countries and communities with developing programs. They're running clinics, coaching kids of all ages, and learning about the culture of this amazing country. They've been welcomed with open arms and have embraced all of the people and customs that they've come across. I've barely heard from him, which is a good thing, because he's happy and busy following his dreams. So changed from the guy who worked in a cubicle in New York City. That guy had more money, a clean shave, and went to networking events, but this guy has a tan, late morning walks with our dog, and a permanent smile.

Jeff and my other friends who have taken risks to reach for the stars work harder, constantly pushing themselves and stretching their limits to make the next thing possible. I love having a boss, normal hours, and a steady paycheck, but I am inspired by people who have big goals and bigger imaginations, who are willing to make sacrifices to get what they want, because they remind me that there's always something to strive for. My dreams - to be happy, fulfilled, to have a loving family, to laugh every day, to make something of my life that I'll always be proud of - are beautiful and exciting to me. These dreams are simple, but they require hard work and persistence, the promise to never give up on myself or to stop reaching for the stars.

Happy weekend and happy dreaming!
