Dream

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” C.S. Lewis

This move to Chicago has taken me off path a bit.  And I mean that in a good way.  I was in a place where I thought I had everything all figured out and planned to perfection.  But the move has stirred things up a bit and thrown a mini-wrench in my plan.  That wrench has turned out to be the biggest blessing, as it has forced me to see things differently, take risks, and break out of the box.  A lot of what I’m doing wasn’t in my plan, but it has opened new doors, new possibilities, and new dreams.  It makes me wonder why I wasn’t dreaming these things before and why I was so set on my silly little plan.  So today, I’m tipping my hat to dreams, and promising myself that no matter how old I get, I won’t ever stop dreaming.

Perfect post Allison! I'm glad this new town has opened so many unexpected doors for you. That's the fun in risk taking :) I'm hoping to make some similar big steps in my life within the next couple of months. Yay for dreams and dreaming!

sometimes you really just have to go with the flow. I'm a major planner type person so I constantly have to remind myself of this!
