Today I had part 2 of a nuclear MIBI. It is amazing what they can do these days. For part of it I am sitting comfortably in a chair and they inject me with something. It apparently fools my heart into thinking I am exercising. I just remain sitting and soon I begin to pant a little, getting a little short of breath. I felt light headed, with a mild head ache. It is strange to be just sitting there and suddenly you start breathing a little heavier just as if you were exercising. Hey, if that can trick my heart into thinking I am exercising, hmm, maybe it also does it to the rest of my body and I could use it to loose a few pounds. lol.
A few days ago I read something interesting. It was a story of a lady in her 80′s graduating from university. Geesh, memory guy here I can’t remember much of the story other than she was following a life time dream. I say good for her. I can’t remember if it said anything about her going to work in her chosen profession but that totally beside the point. She was living out, fulfilling a life time dream and good for her. She should be an inspiration to us all.
I have to wonder how many people are living unfulfilled lives. Possibly even unhappy lives because life, circumstances or what ever seemed to get in the way of them following and possibly living their dreams. I even have to wonder how many people really don’t even know what their dream life or job would be. I am sure for most it would include having more money. There is the old saying money can’t buy you happiness. Well I can understand what that is meant to mean but I still can’t help but think, while it may not buy me happiness, it would take away a lot of the pressures and stresses in life. But that may not be true either, we need a certain amout of pressure in our lives to help us or force us to grow and people. There has to be a balance there some where.
I can’t help but admire that lady getting her university degree while in her 80′s. She had a dream and fulfilled it. I am sure that life must have thrown a few curve balls her way or I can only imagine she would have fulfilled that dream earlier. It just re-enforces in my own mind it is never too late, have a dream, hang on to it and work towards it. You can and will get to it, ANYTHING is possible.
I would ask any that may read this to just stop and think about this single thought. “I have the entire rest of my life in front of me, what do I want to do with it?”
