Dream No More

The last two months has been a dream I could never have dreamed of and one that I never want to wake up from. In the matter of a weekend, I rented my dream apartment in the Upper West Side and got offered a full scholarship with internship opportunity to attend a reputable law school. The vision of me living here illuminated through the uncertainties I've been carrying around for the past year. This time around, instead trying to control life, I stood back and watched it flourish. So much of our lives is about control that even a minute gesture of letting go can usher in the most extraordinary sense of freedom, joy and gratitude. It's nice to dream. It's nice to live the dream. But when the reality is better than anything I could have dreamed of, it's time to open my eyes and dream no more.
