Dreams aren’t free

February 20, 2017

Prompt #2 from Start Where you Are:

Write down 10 big dreams that haven’t come true yet.

  1. Live somewhere where it is always warm enough for my cold blood.

  2. Take a month long sabbatical from life to be alone to write and think.

  3. Write a whole book

  4. Buy a house

  5. Make a mobile boutique for trans kids to get free clothes.

  6. Take my kids someplace crazy none of us has ever seen before.

I don’t know if I even have 10 dreams. It seems like the older I’ve gotten the smaller my dreams have become. When I was younger you know I wanted to live in a house like Cher had in Clueless with the outfit maker thing, with a jeep, in sunny Beverly Hills and now a small practical little house that’s paid for would be even better than that. Do shrinking dreams mean you’re losing hope or you’re gaining perspective on what’s important in life? Maybe it’s because as we grow we realize dreams aren’t just things that happen they’re things that you have to work for and then we have to decide if robot servants are something we REALLY NEED and are willing to work for or if we’ll just wash our own dishes and relax.

        It was lol. Its funny cause i lived on the North Side of Chicago for a long time and the house is in Winnetka…just a short drive up Lake Michigan. I used to gawk at it every now and then when I was up that way. Its a beautiful home but not nearly what movie magic made it look like!
