Hard Work and Dreams

My fiancee defends his thesis tomorrow, and by Friday night he will be a Doctorate in Philosophy!!

It only took him 7 years to achieve this huge goal. I admire Charlie's drive and focus to stay with something so long. He left a secure job on wall street to do something meaningful with his life. Wall street was not that interesting, and the hours we very long. He told me stories of sleeping underneath his desk! I could not imagine. Charlie left NY to work in a fly fishing shop and to get his brain back. He also traveled alot, and it was during his travels he decided to become a professor.

So tomorrow Charlie will have a dream come true. I realize that some dreams just don't happen, you have to work at them. This is a hard lesson for me. Isn't it a enough I know what I want to do?
