Have You Gotten Fat and Sassy? Or, Just Fat?

Have almost finished reading The Seven Sins, a novel by Jon Ladd.

It’s great! Exciting characters and plot twists with just enough new information that I’m learning things as the story progresses.

The main character owns a casino named The Seven Sins and uses the motto, “To Dream, To Dare, To Win.”

Isn’t that what we all want to do?

I know lots of people, though, who seem to have stopped dreaming. They’ve reached a point in life where they’re comfortable, where they’ve said, “This is enough.”

I'm not just talking about material possessions, about stuff. We can grow mentally and spiritually, we can get healthier, we can dream about good things we can do for others.

I keep thinking of poet Robert Browning’s line, “Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, or what's a heaven for?”

Have you stopped dreaming? Have you gotten too comfortable?
