“Let your dreams outgrow the shoes of your expectations.”
— RYUNOSUKE SATORO
It is the season of expectations. How easy it is to let ourselves down through the setting of expectations that may never be met. Yet, how easy it is to retreat from the world by convincing ourselves that grief exempts us from expectations. This year, after 54 months of being confounded by expectations, I will remove the shoes and instead allow myself to dream. For it is in following our dreams that we free ourselves from reaching them and instead inspire ourselves to follow them. May you find the strength to dream.
