Dream a Little Dream

Take One Dream

Dream it in detail.

Put it into your own hands.

See its final outcome clearly in your mind.

Then mix it with a little effort and add a generous portion of ambition.

Stir briskly with confidence until the mixture becomes clear, the doubt separated from the resolution.

Then bake at an even temperature in a moderate mind until the dream rises and is firm to the touch.

Decorate with individuality.

Cut into generous portions and serve with justifiable pride.

Approached in this manner, life is a piece of cake.

What are our dreams?  We will all probably think of something connected to losing weight. After we lose our weight or when we get to that magic number on the scale things are going to start happening. Lose yourself in something you love now. Take a class, join a club, volunteer at the hospital, be a study buddy at a local elementary school - you can get out there and make a difference and will be the happier for it.

I was trying to think of a better ending for the poem - instead of "life is a piece of cake" I thought of Forrest Gump's line that "life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get". Would the poem make sense if that line was changed? No matter - thinking out loud.

Do you have a dream that you are delaying until some time in the future? What's keeping you from going for it? 


  1. Hello Myra, thanks for your comment about my girlfriend. I've tried pretty much all you've suggested, usually with little effect. At the moment, she isn't interested in losing weight. I'd say that will change when she sees me getting almost at goal. As for doing other things other than seeing films, almost all will result in some degree of eating, which sort of defeats the purpose.

    It's a work in progress.

  2. What a great post! Yes, don't wait to lose weight to live your life. Life passes by whether you're skinny or not. Don't lose out on its beauty and your wonderful self. Anything you can do then, you can do now.

    Besides, everything just doesn't fall into place once you've reached goal weight, as though instantly you're happy, life is perfect, there are no problems, nor anything like that. It's still the same; you're just thinner.

    You post reminds me of the importance of this idea. Thank you.
