Inspired: A lesson from my MINI Cooper—now is the time for dreams

Me, my mini niece, my mini dachshund, and my MINI Cooper

Me, my mini niece, my mini dachshund, and my MINI Cooper

Yesterday I placed the next piece of the puzzle in the great re-engineering of my life—I bought a car. And not just a car, but my dream car. I had to decide between a MINI Cooper and a Honda Accord. I’ve wanted a MINI from the time I first saw them over a decade ago.

Thank goodness my sister, Weez, went with me yesterday. We test drove both cars and I was going to go for the practical Accord, even though it was slightly more expensive than the MINI. My sister wouldn’t have it. “The MINI is your dream car. If you aren’t going to go for your dream now, then when?” I bought the MINI. And I love it.

This lesson applies to everything we do. Now is the time for every dream. Today and every day, take your best shot.
