I am doing what every magazine and newspaper article said not to do at the beginning of the year – getting my hopes up. ‘Be sensible, reasonable, and fair,’ they say. ‘Be prepared for disappointment. Maybe failure.’
I dare to dream big – but not for my own sake. How can I take what I have and waste it? How can I leave the best pieces hidden? I don’t want to throw my life away.
Hold on. Take the journey with me, if you aren’t afraid to open your eyes and look around again. I can’t imagine this will be pretty, clean, neat, fair, or sanitary. But it will be honest.
