After four days of traveling — and deviating from my normal routine and set of goals — it’s been a bumpy ride returning to reality.  With the anticipation long gone and the memories beginning to take a backseat to daily life, perhaps it’s time I scan the horizon and re-evaluate the big picture.  It may be that the change of scenery during my trip has rendered the path a little clearer now that my feet have landed on familiar territory … and perhaps I will discover it’s necessary to forfeit one dream in order for another to thrive.  Because sometimes what we think we want and what we truly need are two different things.

How do you know which dream to surrender, and which to retain?
