My posts are infrequent but my thoughts are constant. One of those thoughts that keep coming back to me hit me while I was running yesterday. While running westward and watching the sun set below the Rocky mountains I realized how easy it truly is to live a happy and full life. It all comes down to perspective, attitude and recognition of the perfect ordinary moments in our lives.
The simple words of Martin Luther King Jr. – “I have a dream” back in 1963 came to me and I thought of my dream. The dream was grand, and the dream was perfect and the dream was simple and it went something like this:
“I have a dream that I can become the dad my children look up to. I have a dream that I can become the husband that loves and supports unconditionally. I have a dream that I can accept and learn from the experiences of my parents. I have a dream that I can become a best friend to my brother. I have a dream that I can live with passion, honesty and integrity with everything I do. I have a dream that I can love life, capture its wisdom, harness it, share it, learn from it and contribute to the lives of others. I have a dream.”
I came across a tune other day that helped me to appreciate the fact that I am living my dreams.
