To The Ones That Dream...

 

Here's to the ones who dream, foolish as they may seem.

Here's to the ones who believe.

To the ones who have faith.

The insecure yet resolved.

To the ones who refuse to exchange soul for materialistic gains.

Here's to the ones who don't make excuses. They make breakfast and try again.

To the ones who know that 'playing it safe' still leads to an urn or box of bones.

To the ones who's eyes glaze over when people 'advise' them to 'make a plan b' or 'do this while you're young'.

To the ones who are in the middle of it.

Who are on the verge of giving up but don't.

Here's to the optimists. The ones who've had to learn how, at great expense.

To the ones who know you're probably doing the right thing because it's really hard.

To the ones who know exactly what they want.

 Who plot and execute actual steps to achieve it.

Here's to you. To you who know the great joy of accomplishing a goal on the road to success, as insignificant as it may seem to others.

Here's to me. For writing a blog because I watched a movie and got inspired.

Here's to us, because we know that life happens in community.

Here's to 2017 and being thankful to be alive. What a gift.
