What is your dream?

It has been a very busy week for me as I have been editing my third book in the Dani P. Mystery series. It is the first edit after the rough draft so it is a slow process. As I make my way methodically through the book, I think about how blessed I am to be realizing my dreams. We all have them. However, as we make our way through our busy lives we sometimes push them aside. After all, we our productive adults with jobs and families to care for on a daily basis. What little time we have left usually does not allow us much freedom to pursue our own passions. You know the ones I'm talking about. The ones hidden deep within you. There is something you want to accomplish in life, before you are too old to still pursue them. Don't wait. Time has a way of ticking by, and then perhaps, it will be too late.

Sometimes it takes an epiphany; a revelation of sorts, before you recognize that there has to be more to life than just the day-to-day basics. You deserve more than just envisioning what lies in your heart, you deserve the outcome. Do not take life for granted, but embrace it. Seize all the warm, wonderful opportunities that lie before you.

Whether your dream is to write the next great novel, make children passionate about literature, climb Mt. Everest, or sail around the world---today is the day. Take that first step. Love your family, do the best you can in your job, and then put aside the time you need to make your own soul revel in the fact that you accomplished everything you set out to do in this life. Don't look back with regrets or let fear of the unknown stand in your way. This is your time. Smile and be blessed---then move forward with courage and confidence.

Wishing you all a lifetime of realized dreams,

K. Lamb
