It Will Make Your Life Fulfilling FOLLOWING YOUR DREAMS AND GOALS
I have never met any person who did not have some type of goal, dream, or desire in life. I believe that everyone, from the time they are born, goes through life in stages. And all along the way, they pursue a vari- ety of goals and dreams: The young boy who dreams of hitting the home run to win the World Series, making the buzzer-beating shot to win the bas- ketball game or scoring the winning touchdown to win the championship; the young girl playing with her Barbie doll, thinking of the day she meets her prince charming and has her fairytale wedding; or the young children born into poverty or a broken home, dreaming of the day when they will no longer have to worry about food, clothing, abuse and so many other things that they may face. Some may dream of being the next American Idol while others imagine life as doctors and nurses, teachers or some other career choice. Having dreams and prayers is all part of life. As we grow, our prayers and dreams change… but we all still have them. In many cases, we will achieve some of them, and in other cases, things just never fall into place. In life, there will be numerous times when we are disappointed in the moment. But as time goes on and we look back, we may think of that Garth Brooks song, “Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers.” Having dreams or a “bucket list” is healthy and can be a great driving force to achieving success. Here, in the sport of purebred dogs, our goals and dreams vary greatly among all of us.
