March 22, 2016: Planning Your Dreams...

I just finished watching the Farscape series. In the last episode, Crichton and Aeryn had a conversation.

Crichton: What did you imagine....for your life?
Aeryn: Service. Promotion. Retirement. Death. You?
Crichton: This is exactly what I imagined, and a couple of kids.

Until Aeryn met Crichton, she was an all business Peacekeeper, a kind of intergalactic police officer. She never made time for love or recreation, and all of her relationships served a purpose. Crichton entered her life and she found something in him that made her realize that she was lacking the capacity to imagine a greater purpose for her life.

Far too often, we set our goals on the ordinary and sell our lives far too cheap, never realizing the potential that we could have reached. I've always been laughed at because I have big dreams that no one believes I will ever reach. One thing is absolutely true, if we don't try, we will definitely fail.

Ellen Johnson SirLeaf said, "If your dreams don't scare you, they aren't big enough."
