You are never too old to set another goal
or to dream a new dream. ~ C.S. Lewis

I read something recently — on Facebook perhaps, or maybe I heard it on the news or ran across it in a book — how some people find it easier to do a job that pays the bills but leads to nowhere, than to take that leap of faith by setting a new goal or pursuing a new dream.  That used to be me.  The girl who kept her eyes down, lived quietly in her little circle of influence and plugged away.  Until I went back to school and my eyes were opened to a world of possibilities and opportunities.  And I see more and more people my age who are just starting to live the lives they’ve only dreamed of.  Sometimes I feel like that guy who fell asleep in Gulliver’s Travels and I’ve woken up in a new place.  Older, yes.  But wiser, too.

What’s a new dream you’re dreaming?
