I have a dream

Fifty years ago today, Martin Luther King Jr. gave his unforgettable speech about a better world. Fifty years, and yet the world is no better. To be honest, my dream isn't about equality or discrimination; it's about happiness. I think about all the sad in the world and it breaks my heart! I want to give flowers and candy to everyone who feels lonely or depressed. I want to be able to make people happy simply by thinking about me. Remember when you were little and would get hurt and all your mom had to do is "kiss it better?" Why can't we do that now? Why can't there be some magical bandaid for all the "owies" in our lives? I dream of a world where it's okay to hug strangers who you can tell have had a bad day. I dream of a world where children don't have to grow up too fast or lose their imaginations too young. I dream of a world in which no one judges each other because of bad decisions or puts a label on someone because of their past. I dream of a world where adults laugh as often as children, where people don't work for a paycheck, but for a belief that they are making a difference, and people dance just because they can! I dream of a world of silliness! I dream of being able to act like a complete idiot without having anyone think you're crazy or immature or incompetent.
I dream of peace and love and kindness. I dream of hope and joy.

What's your dream?

Office spaces

After being stuck in an oatmeal colored box for too long I finally decorated my office. Cheap, easy, but perfect to brighten the cramped area. I found the quotes on Pinterest and got the colored paper at Joann Fabric. Don't you love it!?
