Mr & Mrs Average- Do You Still Dream?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Dear Gentle Reader, with the end of 2011 approaching, this ode is dedicated to you if you fear change.

What's your dream?

If you fear change

Stick to what you know, follow the crowd and blend in with the men in grey.

Do not take any risks

Stick to the tried and tested route, the safe path

The way of the masses.

Stick to the regular, same walk, same talk, same paper, and same car

Stick to what your forbearers have done

Don’t rock the boat or dare to step out of line.

Be Joe Blogs, Mrs Average and enjoy your two-up-two-down and 2.5 offspring.

Follow the crowd, do the same as everyone else and live life according to their rules.

Don’t breathe or say ‘Yes’; do as you are told and never be bold.

For what is there? What else can you do when opportunity knocks or life knocks you down?

Well, you can stay where you are; live life in a sea of blue or you could,

you could take a chance and step out of the box and try something new.

You could take a different route, live a little by stretching when you wake, give

yourself permission to take another slice of cake, allow yourself to be loved and

fairies light your path.

You could take a deep breath and say yes, I am here. My opinion does matter. I care and

I want you to hear.

And now, if you could and if someone was listening, I’d love to know what risks you dream of taking. Take a minute and let us know by writing “your secret risk” in the comment box below. Who knows-it may come true!

Thank you and have a wonderful day

  2. A friend of mine use to say: „A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams”. And I belive him!

  3. Dreaming is such a wonderful thing to experience and it’s up to u to make your dreams come true

  4. Dreams are what keeps me hope and it makes us better coz we look forward to the future

    • So true, dreams and aspirations do keep us going, as we get older it is easier to put dreams to one side and forget the sheer pleasure and joy in taking the steps to recapture them. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and share your thoughts.

  5. The only constant is life if change..and i believe that with all my heart. Change is what keeps us alive and look to the future

  6. I sold everything I had in California and moved to Asia. I don’t know if I’ll be able to stay here forever or eventually have to go back. It’s been 4 years plus, so I guess I’m off to a good start.

  10. I’m still creating goals for 2012. I want to read more, and take courses in the area of ??business management. I loved the text.

  11. Hi ntathu..
    I have been focusing on building my blogs snce 8 months ago, which I expect to provide good return from the time and efforts I have invested. It isn't easy for me because my native language isn't English and it seems to be the biggest challange for me. However, I am still sure that I can make my dream come true someday..

  12. try to be yourself, set your own goals and go after them the way you want. I picked up this idea of the text, excellent post.

  13. Hi ntathu great post! If there was one dream I followed was to get into the martial arts. It had been something I had dream about since I was a kid but couldn’t do it because I didn’t have the support. When I was looking for a career change 6 years ago I decided to pursue my dream of really practicing the martial arts seriously, which led me to studying holistic medicine. So I agree, if you follow your dreams you’ll be amazed at how far you can get.
