Dare to Live


Monday to Friday, week in, week out, same old blah blah.

In youth, it was easy to imagine lifetimes of happiness, adventure, love and glory… it was the waiting to experience it all that was difficult!

But somewhere between making money and taking on responsibilities, LIFE was put on hold. STOP!

Re-imagine the possibilities.

GO!

Join the fun: Compose a short story in 55 words and report back to the 
G-Man at http://g-man-mrknowitall.blogspot.com/ …every Friday.

We do forget we always have possibilities. Now we must blend with responsibilities. But also dream we must. Great post. My 55 is here.

That's so true it should be printed, pinned to the wall, and become a habit to read every morning until it *comes true*. I love it!

Mama Zen said...

I am totally feeling this one!

Hey, have you been living with me the past 6 months? You hit the nail on the head. Working (too much) puts a hold on living.

Nice 55,
Thanks!

I've thought about this a lot lately --- how dreams both enliven and imprison us. Ah life... So sweet for its mere existence.

As always, I love your creativity.
