Coming from the Midwest I talk to everyone and anyone, and days like today make me glad I do. I ran out of my apartment running late to meet a friend and luckily to my surprise an available cab was coming my way, hailed him down and hopped in . Immediately after telling him the name of the restaurant I asked how his day was going and he proceeded to ask me â€œWhat is your dream for life?â€ Caught me off guard thatâ€™s for certain, at only 25 years old I donâ€™t feel I need to have life and dreams planned out and Iâ€™m pretty pleased with where my life is at this time so my response was â€œstill figuring that all out.â€ Â The wise cabby had some brilliant words for me, â€œyouâ€™re in the ocean in a row-boatÂ with no destination until you set your dreams.â€ I have been following my passions and living life the best way I know how but donâ€™t have my dreams down pat. I do know what my passions are, writing being on of them but how do I mold this in to a dream for life when there are many things I am passionate about? Thatâ€™s left to be determined.
Lucky for Ella she has a dream for life but she is still stuck in the row-boat not heading to her destination. Her passion for footwear is evident, in the way it boosts her mood to the way it shows her confidence in herself. Ella may be shy but she is far from reserved when she has on a pair of fabulous pumps.
With a hunger for more wisdom I ask the cabby, how to find my dream for life and once again he enlightens me. â€œThe deer teaches the hunter how to hunt the deer,â€ now you may be thinking the same thing I was thinking, â€œhuh?â€ The wise cabby explains to me that dreams find you and teach you how to reach your dream. Ella learns how to reach her dream because she loves and knows her footwear so she will be successful in however she pursues this dream.
As I stepped out of the cab, I said thank you for the advice and he said â€œjust keep practicing the art of living.â€
