The Falling Leaves, Drift By the Window

It upsets when people say they can't achieve their dreams. I usually ask what their dreams are and I get well dreams that are broad and take many steps and stages. Nobody ever thinks about breaking down a goal. This world has come to the point where nobody wants to work to get anything they want. Even to get our food the fast food industry has grow in the past decade.

You can't get everything you want instantly some things have to be obtained and sometimes in a specific order. I believe dreams can always be followed. It might not be the exact picture in your head but things are rarely what we imagine them to be.

As most of you know I decided to make a Summer Bucket List. It wasn't any big dreams, but it was small dreams to help me have a fantastic summer. Most of mine was to help me remember the small things that can still be enjoyed by all. I accomplished all but one thing on my summer bucket list though. I call that pretty good.
