If I Only Had a Dream…


My friend Kim Emerson…author of…Digitis 233… posed a question on Facebook last night…

If you could only have ONE of your dreams come true…what would you choose…

A very good question…and several people posted very good responses…except me…I didn’t post anything…because…I didn’t have a clue…

It’s one of those questions that I hate because it makes me think…it’s one of those questions that…Bertha…loves for the same reason…funny thing is…I know the answer…the answer is…

I want to be happy

I just keep wanting to add stipulations to it…I want to be happy and spend the rest of my life with my soul mate…I want to be happy and be able to write fulltime…I want to be happy and have killer shoes…that don’t hurt my feet…I want to be happy and wear a size 6…and still be able to eat anything that I want

I want to be happy…AND

Bertha…reminds me…there is no…AND…in…h-a-p-p-i-n-e-s-s…I look at the letters…surely enough…there isn’t a…D…then she picks out the letters for…shine…and…suddenly I know…that is what I want…I want to shine…to radiate light…in whatever I am doing…even if my shoes are clunky…even if I’m on a diet…even if I’m working outside of writing…even if there is no soul mate…

I want to shine

Jane
