40 Pieces of Advice Challenge - Day 9

What are you doing right now?

Reading this blog post, either on a computer screen, a tablet or a smart phone, right? Are you sitting on a couch, in a chair? Are you at home or in a coffee shop? What do you have on your body? Chances are, you're wearing clothes, maybe jewelry. Did you shower this morning? Drive your kids to school in your car? Take the bus to work?

Are you thinking about a great film you saw recently? An article you want to share with your friends?

Do you have plans to take a trip? Maybe fly to Paris to check out the Eiffel Tower, or even walk to your local community park?

Will you call a family member just to say hi, to catch up on the latest events of your lives? Are you listening to your favorite singer right in your very own home? Are you eating toast made from a gluten-free recipe that you read about in a book?

Just stop what you are doing for a moment. 

And think.

Every thing you use in your life - from the clothes you wear, to the music you listen to, to the appliances that free up so much of your time to dedicate to doing not what you must to survive, but what you desire to really live - almost every thing around you - 

was once just a dream in someone's mind.

What will you dream about today?
