Last night I got sucked into a SATC marathon. I was watching the episode where Carrie moves to Paris and realizes her dream was not all it was cracked up to be. There she stood, in the most beautiful city in the world, on a pay phone confessing to Miranda how lost and alone she felt. The language was not the only thing that felt foreign to her. In fact, her entire life at that moment, felt; her relationship, the fact that she was no longer a columnist, the streets she did not know how to navigate, the cafes that were void of her girlfriends. Miranda's response? "Come home. You sound miserable."
The bottom line is sometimes even our best dreams are not always what they are cracked up to be. They disappoint, or we find we are not as happy as expected. Have you ever had an experience where you found out your dream was really not for you?
