The World is within my reach


This is my world map.  It is taped to my wall right above the place where I sleep.  Sometimes at night, I lie in bed, stare at the map and dream of all of the places I want to go.  It does not match any of my other decorations, but it is the most treasured item in my room.  It represents my dream, my goal and (if I’m lucky) my future.  Everyday, it reminds me that there is a purpose to the things I do and the stories I write.  It is placed close to my bed, so that I feel it is never too far away.  And it does feel close to me.  I can reach out my hand and place a finger on any country of my choosing.  Even in the dark, I will land among my dreams.

The World is within my reach.

  1. I don’t know why but this post gives me tears to my eyes. And the only way I can respond is to show you this photograph.

    1. Thank you for sharing your photo of your world map. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who does this 🙂 I always find mine to be a good reminder of the things I want to accomplish in my life. Sometimes, it is hard to look at because I know I still have a ways to go, but I’m hopeful!
