If Only

‘Dream big to achieve big’, now that is a bold statement and one that I am more than inclined to believe is true. ‘Achieving Big’ doesn’t have to relate to an extreme sporting event or anything so life threatening, on the contrary your ‘Big Dream’ may be passing your driving test, trimming your over grown garden hedge that you’ve put off for weeks, ironing the build up of six months worth of clothing or creating something that you’ve always wanted to create.

I watched my cat in one of his many pensive nap moments and wondered what he was dreaming about. I thought about his life living in my household where he appears to just be eating, napping, roaming, eating, napping, roaming etc, every day seems to be a revolving door of sameness in his world, but what if I was wrong 😮

What if my cat has dreams and aspirations and feels content that he has achieved them each and every day? I would never know, but he looks happy and full of energy, especially after one of his power naps.  So to me it would seem I don’t need to worry about my cats goals and achievements, but shockingly whilst in a power nap of my very own, I had a vision that my wise and thoughtful cat had rested it’s head on my lap and I asked him ‘What is your list of ‘If Only’?’.  He reeled off his list matter-of-factly, see youtube video below;

I casually asked him what he was going to do about his ‘If Only’ list, to which he replied,

‘My moon is our evening porch light when I’m roaming, so I can find my way back home. When I’m up in the trees and a branch breaks beneath my feet I get to base jump through the air. Me and the tennis ball are great dance partners and I’ve been known to bust a back spin into running man. Scaling up the side of our house to get across to the neighbours garden…now that is my Everest. There are many cats in our neighbourhood so it’s always wise to be aware of your surroundings like a Samurai warrior and super speedy like Bruce Lee when cornered’.

As I stirred from my power nap, I couldn’t help chuckling to myself for thinking my cat was actually speaking to me, but part of me was more than happy to have shared in a different perspective on ‘Dreaming Big to Achieve Big’.
