When asked how things are going, I have several friends who reply, “Living the dream, just living the dream.” It’s always seemed to be a bit of a joke, that you’re living your dream but not quite the dream you’d envisioned…
I woke up yesterday morning to this amazing view of the ocean off my hotel balcony in Miami. The wifi unfortunately doesn’t reach out there well enough to access my work place VPN, but I’ve been able to take a few coffee breaks and enjoy the amazing view.
I feel so fortunate to be in a place that gives me the opportunity to sit on a balcony overlooking the ocean on a random Wednesday in May. Flight included. While considering that, I was struck by the fact that I am actually living my dream of travelling for work and seeing the world. Maybe not quite in the way I envisioned it, but the dream all the same.
As I work toward where I actually want to be, I felt content with the here and now.
After all, I’m living the dream.
