Did you ever wish you could live in one of those high-rise penthouses with a terrace view overlooking some beautiful city? The reality of life is that many of the dreams and fantasies we have are just that...things and places that are not possibilities in our life. However, as the eternal optimist and one who takes the old adage
about 'having a will/finding a way' as a challenge, I believe that almost any dream can come true...even if it's only for a few moments. With that said, I now share how I fulfill my "I always wanted to live in a high-rise with a skyline view" dream/fantasy.
Anytime I stay in a hotel, I ask for a room with a view of the city skyline. In making this request, I've discovered two things; 1) getting a room with a fabulous view of the city skyline doesn't always include an upgrade charge, but if it does, it's worth it, and 2) at night, almost every city - big or small - has a beautiful, view-worthy skyline. For a few brief hours or a few nights, turning the lights out, throwing the curtain wide open, and going to sleep pretending I live in a beautiful high-rise with a fabulous view of the city allows me to live a dream. In a very small way, I get to do something that otherwise would be impossible. These special nights are perfect moments in my life that I cherish and treasure...they make me smile. These make me smile.
"The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity." ~Margaret D. Nadauld
