Last night was Book Group, and I led the discussion on Eat Cake by Jeanne Ray. For refreshments we had...cake! There are several recipes in the back of the book. Yum! The book itself is a light read --not too long, and the content seems fluffy. But once you get into it and start thinking about it, there are so many layers (not unlike a cake, eh?) to absorb. I really enjoyed it, and I think you will, too.
There was one question asked last night that really got me thinking. Is there any kind of secret dream that we would like to do or want to do, but we are unable to out of time (children, responsibility, etc.) or fear? We spent a long time going around the room sharing our dreams.
Mine? All kinds:
- Writing. I'm doing this one slowly, but I'm finally doing it! One day I'll be published. That's my dream.
- Going back to school for my MFT (Master's in marriage and family therapy) and not necessarily using it, but just having it.
- Doing the Amazing Race and winning!
- Traveling the world and learning myriads of languages.
But I want to know about yours. What secret dream do you have? What's holding you back from doing it? Is it possible to achieve it if given enough attention, or overcoming fear?
