This weekend one of our mutual friends celebrated their one year anniversary of owning their own coffee shop. It's always inspiring to see other chasing their dreams and succeeding. I read a phrase a while back that said "If you don't work to make your dreams happen, you'll end up working to make someone else's dream happen." Or, something like that.

In many ways I feel as though I have given up on my dream of living in Paris. Not because I no longer want it, but more so because I have seen so many others do it. I have had several friends live a year or two, or more in Paris. In many ways I feel as though they have taken my dream and lived it for me. It's strange, but in the past I have often felt as if I needed a new goal or aspiration due to that. I have felt that chasing the Parisian dream of mine is a road too well paved by my acquaintances. I hope that with time that feeling will fade. However by then, it may be "too late". Whatever that may mean. Life happens when you're busy making plans!

There is so much to see and do in this world. I have often felt frustrated with myself because I sometimes feel as though I can feel my world becoming smaller. I get so caught up in the world of social media, nuances with work, etc that I often forget to stop dreaming and to start doing. Here's to hoping that the upcoming year will be filled with more doing than dreaming!
