This question has been in my mind for the past several weeks. I don’t recall how the topic came up but it had been a question I am asking myself and I also asked my husband to think about it as well.
Do you have a dream? At first I wondered if I had one specific dream, then as I thought about it I believe I have two. The first is to run the Boston marathon. I want to qualify for it but that may be too big of a stretch for me. As I have been running the past year, my average marathon finish time is at best 5:38. In order to qualify for Boston I have to take over an hour off of my time. That just might not be possible for me. I know if you want something bad enough you can do it, but I am also a realist and know my body’s limitations. I am prone to injury. So since the dream is to run it, if I run with a charity bib I will still be happy to be part of the event. I haven’t given up on that dream, but I am reconsidering my options. Fundraising for it will not be an easy task either.
While on our vacation, I was out on a run and my husband met a family at the hot tub from New Jersey. They recently moved to Florida. They told him it was a big decision to make the move but it is one they don’t regret. They were about the same age as us and moved when their children were 6 and 7. The kids adapted great and the schools are very good. They are in Stuart, Florida. My husband told me about them and I met them later that morning. After talking with them, my husband and I talked and I told him that meeting them ties right in with the question I have been pondering for a while. What if?
For several days we kept talking about it, what if this and what if that. We even went as far as to looking at houses in a few areas where I have friends. My dream is to find a job that I love in a place that I love. It’s no surprise that I love Disney. I have several friends and many runDisney acquaintances who also love Disney. I just leaned a few days ago that one of those acquaintances just accepted a job at Disney. What a coincidence. It definitely sparked an interest for me. I did some research online and saw a few job postings that are a good fit for me. What a huge what if. I reached out to her and asked her all of my questions, and she gladly answered them. It’s so exciting to hear about her experience.
But hey, maybe this is something to really think about and throw out to the universe to see if it is meant to happen. Doesn’t mean I have to take a job, it doesn’t even mean I would get a job, but it doesn’t mean I shouldn’t try. You never know unless you try. Following the theme about dreams coming true, I saw this show at the Magic Kingdom and had to get some video of it. It was so appropriate for the thoughts that were running through our heads.
What is your dream?
