I’m honored to be guest posting over at the Allume blog today :)
Can I make a confession? I have a God-sized dream buried deep in my heart.
It has been there as long as I can remember, but I’ve only recently gained the courage to give voice to it.
Maybe you do, too. Maybe you have a dream so big that you keep it tucked safely away where this world of disappointments can’t touch it.
I’m reminded of a movie I watched a few years ago, Win a Date with Tad Hamilton (don’t laugh!). In this movie, one of the main characters (Pete) is secretly in love with the female lead (Rosalee). And the wise bartender challenges him to go after her. Here’s part of their exchange:
Pete: I’ve tried everything.
Angelica: What did she say when you told her that you love her?
Pete: Well, actually, maybe not everything, but…
Angelica: What did she say when you kissed her?
Pete: OK, maybe it’s more like two things I haven’t tried.
Angelica: Well, what have you tried?
Pete: I have very unsubtly implied how I feel about her.
Aren’t we a lot like Pete sometimes? We have this dream. A dream so big that it fills our hearts with longing, and we just have to follow after it.
Except we can’t. Because what if we fail?
