Thanks for your story, Erik P.M. Vermeulen. This is exactly how it is. Less about dreams and more about seizing opportunities.
Part of your story reminds me of the writing prompt Sherry McGuinn gave us in the publication Illumination that went flying in the past 8 weeks.
I’ve read many versions by many writers already. And would love to read yours, the way you write about your childhood dreams.
The second part of your story is pure wisdom.
We have to unleash our own creativity. We have to become creators instead of just consumers. We have to rethink our own futures, connecting to our own souls and values and talents.
Transition does that. Shake us awake and give us snippets of wisdom to help us on our paths.
I just hope that we will all support each other. Collaborate. Share. It’ll make the path for all of us so much easier…
