Does it exist?

I dream of a place where passion is so thick, it’s contagious. Where you’re left no other choice but to be inspired to continuously reach and grow.

I dream of a place where the reward is the difference you make- the lives you touch.

I dream of a place where together is always better than on your own. Where people come together to dream up solutions to problems, both big and small.

I dream of a place where you always do what’s right, because it’s right. Not because someone told you to or it’s on the test- but because you just have a feeling.

I dream of a place filled with joy. Joy in the journey, the celebrations and bumps in the road. Joy in the messy and unknown. Joy in being present.

I dream of a place that people are excited to come to and be a part of. Pride, community, and purpose oozing from the walls.

I dream of a place that’s all about the kids. Politics and budgets pushed to the side to make room for what really matters- the business of growing good people.

Does this place exist? If so, please let me know where to forward my resume.

  1. I share your dreams – I share your vision! You do exactly what Michelle does – YOU work each and every day to create this dream and share the vision with every person you come in contact with. YOU have made a difference, sometimes the difference is invisible, you have to just believe in the dream!

  2. This is the perfect post for this point in the year when there are mixed feelings of excitement and anxiety. As the year is coming to a close, we are all trying to fit that one last thing in, and before you know it, we string a bunch of those “one last things” together!

    I love the image of “Pride, community, and purpose oozing from the walls.” Thank you for writing this reflection and for sharing your dream. I will keep these words at the center of all choices I make as we close out the year!

  3. I dream too, and although I find myself disappointed at times, I believe that if we keep dreaming and working hard (and together) to make the dream a reality, it will happen. I love the line – make room for what really matters, the business of growing good people. That is what we are here to do!
