Living the dream

Standard

A few days ago I said to someone “congratulations, you’re living the dream.” Afterwards I wondered, what does that even mean? So often we say to people, wow, look at you, living the dream! But what is “living the dream”? Who’s dream are we referring to anyway?

My dream is to work not because I have to but because I want to. It’s having the freedom to do whatever, be wherever and study whatever. It’s having options. I’m working towards that dream, and I can feel it coming. But unless you know what you’re working towards, how do you know what to do to get it?

What does “living the dream” mean to you?
