Climb ev'ry mountain
Search high and low
Follow ev'ry by-way
Every path you know

Climb ev'ry mountain
Ford ev'ry stream
Follow ev'ry rainbow
'Till you find your dream

A dream that will need
All the love you can give
Everyday of your life
For as long as you live

This is a song from my favourite movie - Sound of Music. I remember listening to this song as a teenager and as a young adult. I remember thinking that the song sounds so ... Severe. Definite. Final. I mean, all the love you can give, for as long as you live? Isn't that a bit too much? Is it even possible? People grow and with that their dreams and aspirations change. The lyrics were too idealistic for me. According to me, it was too idealistic for everyone except Julie Andrews perhaps.

Now I know better.

My dream is to be a mom. Mom to Ashwin.
