“Don’t let today’s disappointments cast a shadow on tomorrow’s dreams.” ~Unknown
The thing about dreams is that they never expire unless you let them. Life can be a continual challenge filled with unforeseen events we struggle to navigate through—no one is arguing that point. But the road can be made a little easier if you continue to foster the idea that dreams still beat in your heart. Many times they’re buried under a sea of responsibilities and duties we frequently clutter our lives with, but they’re still there nonetheless. Maybe it’s time to simplify your life, to take a look in the mirror and remember what it was like to hope and dream for the future. Ask yourself, “is there anything I can do right now?”
Our dreams might seem big at times, but the utter pleasure we receive by fulfilling them might be closer than we think. No one can predict our fate, regardless of the fictitious picture we create in our heads. So why not think positively and continue to hope and dream with the childlike naivety we all abandoned so many years ago? See if there are ways to make your dreams a reality, even on a much smaller scale. Believe me the personal accomplishment is worth more than the accolades.
As Harriet Tubman said “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars—to change the world.”
