What now?

Reset the dream button. That's what I once heard a speaker say we should do when we have attained the dreams of our youth. He said that when we are young we have these dreams to marry, perhaps have a family, buy a house, a car, do well in our career, etc., and then when these dreams are accomplished we ask, "Is this all there is?"

Resetting the dream, i.e. finding new visions for our lives, is good advice. Yet we are often tied to our current situations by more than our own needs. Others depend on us. We are not totally free to move into a new direction. How do we find the right balance between current responsibilities and framing a new direction? I guess it is just another one of the great challenges of life.
