John Hughes Did Not Direct My Life

John Hughes did not direct my life. I suppose that is why no matter how much I wait for it – the dare-to-be-great situation – it is always just out of my reach. For those of you that are John Hughes enthusiasts, I know, this very quotable line is not actually from a John Hughes film but instead one that fits the 1980's romantic genre. Not the point. I have spent a lifetime – correction, I have spent my lifetime looking and waiting. 
Some would say the opportunity presents itself daily.  Every moment of every day is a dare-to-be-great situation.  When I think of some of those moments, truly, I have had them.  The key then perhaps is not to wish for a John Hughes directed life, but instead to realize that I have had and will have adventures that even the great John Hughes could not have directed.  Sometimes, it is life unscripted that makes it all worth living.
