“Living the Dream”

This morning as I was passing the front desk of Gainey Village after my 5:30am Hot Yoga class. I saw Tim, one of the managers. I said to him “Good morning Tim, How’s it going?” “Living the Dream” he replied. I replied something like “Keep “living the dream” throughout the weekend”. As I walked through the sliding glass doors and to the far end of the parking lot through the fresh sunlight of a new day, I thought about that saying, “Living the Dream”. We often say it in a sarcastic or semi-sarcastic state. As I arrived at the car and began to drive home, I realized that, in fact, many of us are really “living the dream”. There is no other time in the history of the world that has seen the amount of prosperity, opportunity, and freedoms that we enjoy now. We have access to fresh water and food. We have freedoms of Religion, Speech (kind of), and to Bear arms. Many of us are truly Blessed. We can fall in love and marry and have children, or not. We can travel freely pretty much wherever we choose. We can start businesses and make money and choose how we spend, save or invest it (with increasing interference by the government). We can own property and create the environment we choose to live. We have unprecedented access to information and entertainment. We have increasingly amazing medical technology.  It is a great time in history to be alive….. We should all be grateful for all of the blessings in our lives, because despite the trials an challenges, many of us truly are  “Living the Dream”.
