We all would love to think that tomorrow is always going to come. But. . . as many of us know, that is not the truth of it. So why is it that we live life as if we have all the time in the world?
How many dogs do you know that let the sticks go by and not go after them? I know there are always exceptions, but for the most part, dogs always go after the stick as if their lives depend on it! Now am I saying your life depends on you chasing a stick? Literally - of course not. Metaphorically however, it applies.
Think of the stick as your dreams. When we are little we all have dreams of some sort or another, but somehow life tends to steer us away from our dreams, especially if they are big ones, or ones that fall outside of the acceptable box. Too many folks want to tell us to take our head out of the clouds and give up, but if we are lucky, we don't listen.
Interestingly enough not every stick calls to a dog! I've tried to give sticks to my boys and for some reason they don't want them. The wood isn't the right kind, maybe there is an order, or it's rotten. But when it's the right wood, boy or boy are they all in.
Think of your dreams in the same way, the ones that call to you are the ones you are meant to have. Otherwise said, your dreams are yours because you are meant to have them. Consider this next time you reminisce about what might have been. It's never too late, if the dream still comes up for you, its because it's waiting for you to not just chase it, but actually live it.
Dogs cross over the rainbow bridge with no regrets, how about we all make the same promise, so that should the time come that we cross over our own rainbow we do so after living a fully expressed life. Tomorrow is a gift, always live in the present. Chase the stick and enjoy!
