When I was a teenager I had dreams of what I wanted to be. Dreams of where I wanted to go. But . . . Life got in the way!
I was watching an old rerun of the show “Kotter” from the late 1980s.
The song from that show keeps drifting through my mind.
“Welcome Back – Your dreams were your ticket out.
Welcome back to the same old place that you laughed about.
Well the names have all changed since you hung around,
But those dreams have remained and they’ve turned around.
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back!”
Do you think the character Vinnie (what a head of hair) – alias John Travolta – had dreams that changed in the last few decades?
I have no regrets of the life I lived. Yet, dreams of roads untraveled still plague my thoughts; after all these years. Despite unfulfilled dreams my life has been quite fulfilling – thus far. How about your dreams? Is there time to fulfill some of those dreams from your youth?
The two unfulfilled dreams of careers, that I regret not pursuing, sound so corny now. They are total opposites of each other and the secret of what they are will remain hidden. (Don’t worry – they are not bad – just silly)
