It was an offhand comment from our landlord....
We had just gotten the keys for our new place, signed all the papers, handed over the rent cheques. I already had a liking for this new landlord of ours because he bent the rules a little to let us rent in the first place. We got to chatting - our winter in Phoenix came up. "I don't mean to pry - but why do you go down there?" He asked. Everyone asks. "To practice and play and really work at improving my golf game so I can compete better in the summer" Scott answered.
"Awesome. I love when people chase their dreams"
....I was a little taken aback that this man we had just met not only put his finger on exactly what we are doing - he commended us for it. It made me pause. It made me smile. It made me happy to have a tiny morsel of support, instead of the usual 'you guys are crazy' response, for our dream chasing life right now.
So, to all you dream chasers out there. I commend you. For being brave enough to make risks and chase your dreams.
