A Dream is a Wish the Heart Makes

My husband and I were having a conversation recently about life. Where we’d like to live, what we dream of doing, etc. And the subject came up as to why people waste their whole lives living somewhere they don’t like. People who like warmer weather live all their lives somewhere cool or people want a different job but stay stuck in what they are doing. We were kind of speculating together and wondering… “why?”

We only get one life. Why do we stay somewhere we don’t enjoy? Sure – there are logistical reasons at times that could give us reason to pause. Things such as a stable job, a good church, family, or our kids. But there are jobs everywhere. There are churches everywhere. If that is really our excuse, why don’t we start looking for a job first to see what is even possible?

It seems like a lot of people talk about wishing to live on an island somewhere or dreaming of one lifestyle or another. So why don’t they do it? Is it just finances holding them back or is it fear? Are we afraid of change? How many of us truly have the courage to start applying for a job somewhere else while we continue on with our lives….only to get it and be able to move to our dream location? How many of us truly love where we live?

I think those are really interesting thoughts and questions.
