Dreams are what make life worth living. I can't tell you the number of times that people told me that my dream won't become a reality. The truth is dreams are your own, if you want something bad enough you will find a way to get. I have been blessed to have two people that helped me when I was ready to give up on my dream. One is my wife, I could write all night about how great she is. To read about how much she means to me you can read this past blog dedicated to her http://diabetic-cyclist.weebly.com/1/post/2012/05/riding-for-my-wife.html The other person who has helped me is Jamin Reda, I believe I have a passion for diabetes but this guy takes it to another level. He has been the that will meet with me and build me up when I feel that my dream is falling apart. If I had not met him last fall at the Boston diabetes walk this dream would be just that a dream. With his help this dream will be a reality.
I look forward to releasing the dream information in tomorrows blog. I feel good that it will become a reality but if it does not I'm not giving up. I will go back to the drawing board and find some way to make it a reality. In closing I have to put a quote from Harry Chapin that describes dreams.
"I could tell you that I get asked a lot of times
How I can change the world I've also have been asked a lot of times
How I can be a rock and roll singer
And do you see what's on the end of my fingers?
Calluses and what that means is
If you're willing to play the guitar night in, night out
For audiences of three people when you're coming up
And finding that even your mother says, "Ppp, it doesn't sound very good"
The point is very simple if you care enough you can have an impact
Because in the long run we're not sure about a prior life
Or an after life, we're all hoping for that
But what we can do is maximize
What we have in this brief flicker of time
In the infinity and and try to milk that
And be hungry in a different kind of way
Hungry for experience, hungry for meaning
And you can be terribly, terribly effective if you want to be"
