I wrote a post about job hunting last month that generated some interesting comments. One of my suggestions was for job searchers to dream about what their perfect or dream job would be. That really seemed to strike a chord with readers. Since I don't have a mega-blog this was obviously just a small sampling of people, but of all the different ideas I shared in that post, the idea of a dream job was what resonated for most readers.
It was also surprising to find out that so many people want to work from home. In a country where getting ahead and being a "success" are emphasized, I was amazed by the number of people who don't want to be in the rat race.
For other people, their dream had already come true. They had their dream job. I felt so happy for them and was glad that they realized they were "living the dream".
Generally, I don't think we dream enough, or at least I don't dream enough. I get stuck in the necessary, in the needful and forget there could be something wonderful just around the corner. So much has to be accomplished in a day. Money has to be earned, bills paid, food purchased and cooked, children educated, house cleaned and maintained, and this is just the short list. It's easy to forget to dream. Easy to forget to dream about the future and dream about how we'd like our lives to be.
My springtime challenge (there's that word again) to you and to me is to dream. What would we like to be different about our lives? What would we like to change? How can we make it happen?
What's your dream?
