Things change as we get older.
Christmas and birthdays come and go without the weeks of agonizing beforehand, that feeling that the good day will never arrive, the sheer joy and abandon when it does.
In the process of growing up, do we become . . . boring?
“Dream Big” reminds us to reach for something that is bigger and grander than what and where we actually are.
Someone wrote me the other day, “Yeah, I could do what I want with unlimited money and time.”
So do we all think, but when we look around at those people who actually do have unlimited money and time, it’s intriguing to notice that even they don’t seem to be doing what they want. Rather, they’re more concerned about keeping what they have, and are worried that if they don’t look a certain way, act a certain way, speak a certain way, they will topple.
Dreams are big things, and they are not achieved overnight, nor without hard work, perseverance, determination, and patience — the gritty elements that work in the background.
