This time of the year when we all make wishes, set goals, look after a better life, drop or hope to drop a bad habit…. Hope or try getting a new one… (with the best chances to be a good one..)
That all is ok but since I am the kind of rebellious one I have decided to go the other way around.
Nope, it is not that I will turn bad or anything like that. It is just that I will make my life easier. How? Living one day at the time, doing the best I can do, doing the things I like and love. Forgetting to be perfect, just doing it better to my liking, not to other’s expectations.
Life sometimes is just like a balloon, and like a letter attached to it, being it all our dreams waiting to be read… not knowing when that balloon will go off or if the letter will get its destination. My best guess is just to hang on to it and enjoy the view at the heights, just like a tourist learning new ways, persons and customs, from a far as an spectator, with no judgement and just looking how things are done and said in some other places.
My only wish for this 2015 is just to be happy, and I think I can make this single task each day and if not I have 365 chances to get better at it.
Let’s just be happy.
Not a clue. Still it looks like it has all those 365 chances to give something a try…
…and that works best in groups, with friends and loved ones. I wouldn’t spend much time in the mountain if I didn’t know
someone could assist me in a moment of need. From a flat tire to a broken chain…
Even a “You can do it man” word of encouragement.
If routes are tough, long or steep, I am coming through.
I am ready.
I found this jar in my daughter’s closet. My first impulse was to pour in some loose change I had and I did.
Seconds after that I thought, what happened to my dreams? What happened to all those illusions I had, and those few ones I still keep?
Could it be that I am aging and I see that some things are just not possible, or do I need to be 13 years old to wish a fulfilled life?
What is the difference for what I hope for at this time than from the past time?
My 13 year old daughter doesn’t have much in terms of wealth and still has big dreams. I am in the same conditions, with the exception of age. Where are my dreams?
Would it be that I have a perception of reality that she doesn’t have and because of that, I know what is supposed to be possible and what impossible?
So far she has accomplished many goals with determination, a set mind and a strong will. Would that be what one needs?
Now, I have my own jar where to keep my change, a to-do list for what I want and I have dug up long time dreams.
Let the journey begin, with determination, a set mind and a strong will.
