Dream On.

It’s my birthday!

Well, yesterday actually, but my computer was at the Apple store so now I get to write.
I was waiting for my birthday to write and post my blog. I wanted to do a birthday blog. 
Yay! Time to celebrate!

But, I hit some snags on the way to my celebration. 
First, some family medical news that threw us all for a loop. Then, another rejection. Yes- a rejection ON MY BIRTHDAY! He didn’t know it but- - Ouch!
So, what did I do? After brunch with my sister and parents, I got in my car and cried. It just felt like too much. I don’t know if I can keep it up. I was worried about my dad. I was upset about the rejection. In other words, I was feeling really sorry for myself. It had been a really tough couple of days.
I turned on my car and the radio went on. There was Steven Tyler and Aerosmith belting out the song, Dream On. Dream until your dreams come true. Funny how that happens, isn’t it?

This past weekend, I drove my son and two other 6 year-old boys to a party. That was the funniest 25-minute drive I had in a while. Their giggles, loud talking, and of course, poop jokes were hysterical. After I dropped them off and my ears stopped ringing, I was talking to another mom who had dropped off her son at the same party. We decided to have lunch while the boys were busy. We sat at the restaurant, eating our sandwiches, and actually talked. We talked about family, friends, our childhood . . . everything. She had read my blog and learned that I was a Pediatrician. We met two years ago and she didn’t know that about me. At that moment, I realized how little we know about the people around us. How little we communicate.
The reason for my blog became crystal clear. This is my blog to write about my life, my journey to one of my dreams of becoming a published author, and along the way to discover myself, my family, friends, and everyone who reads this blog.

Let’s talk more.
Let’s write more.
Let’s discover more.
And let’s dream more.

My birthday wish is that we are all healthy, happy, and that we dream until we dreams come true.

Happy writing and Happy dreaming,

  1. I love that! Very inspiring! Your birthday was like a microcosm of life....filled with a balance of joy and sadness, forever balancing itself out. I am sorry to hear you are worried about your Dad, but I am also glad that on your special day you tuned in to how fragile, beautiful and wonderful the mysteries of life are! Dream until your dream comes true, indeed. It's your life, your dream, make it happen!! As for the rejection on your birthday, remember, those are actually a present. It's the wrong person passing so you can be available for the right one!
