Welcome to my first blog post.  I have so many ideas and topics that I want to write about that I am not quite sure
where to start.  So let me start with some ideas and vision for where
I hope to take this blog.
First, I want to be transparent with my struggles and challenges.  I hope by sharing these I can help other people overcome their challenges.  I am also hoping to start a discussion. To have you, my fellow dreamers, give ideas and advice that I can use and we can all share.

What is a Dandelion Dream?

Have you ever had that thought, I would like to do _________ (fill in the blank).
Usually, it is something highly impractical, expensive, huge in scope or just plain silly.  So the idea pops in your head and you think  “I can’t do that”.  But later, the same thought pops up. Just like a lone flower in the middle of your grass and you pull it up with “I don’t have time for that”.  But again you are perhaps on a long car ride and you have time to pondersingle dandelion in a lawn how wonderful it would be to do this thing.  In a perfect world, how successful you would be.  How happy and fulfilled you would be.  But you get to your designation and think “I don’t have the money to do that.”

I don’t have the expertise.
I have responsibilities.
I don’t know where to start.
Nobody would be interested in what I have to say.
This is foolish, be practical.
And each time we say this to ourselves we are pulling up the lone flower of our dream by its roots.
