Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good lord will take you away~ Steven Tyler Aerosmith
Ok, I’ll be the very first to admit that this is just bizarre! I had a dream last night that I was working for this company cleaning this very strange hallway that seemed to be made of stone bricks. Now the deal was that we had to scrub these stones with bleach to keep the moss from growing back. What wasn’t bizarre to me in this dream was that I was scrubbing these bricks with bleach, nor the fact that even though I am awake I can still smell the mossy/bleach smell. What was bizarre is that we weren’t done yet and our shift was up and I wanted to leave and when we went to leave the job our foreman, Steven Tyler from Aerosmith, told us we had to stay until it was finished. I for one can tell you I have never ever dreamed about Steven Tyler before and I am not sure where that one came from LOL! 🙂 With that I leave you with Aerosmith….
“Excellence can be obtained if you care more than others think is wise, risk more than others think is safe, dream more than others think is practical, expect more than others think is possible.” -Unknown
I like to believe that this much is very true. That if I strive for excellence and care very much about the things I am passionate about they will pay me back ten fold with fulfillment and joy. A great part of reaching this excellence is achieved in stepping out on the edge of the cliff and not allowing yourself to be afraid of the HUGE drop in front of you. It is to look at the fear of failure and face it head on and tell yourself I will not be afraid. For if I risk nothing I gain nothing. You have to dream big and face those frightening challenges ahead if you are to ever expect to achieve your goals and reach to the highest pinacles.
