Oh my goodness, I love to daydream. When I was a younger person, I dreamed of a happy marriage and having a child. I dreamed of a career with meaning, home ownership, and living a life where I didn’t have to worry about having enough money to get food on the table. At some point, I also dreamed of being a singer, writer, an attorney, an astrologist, of living in San Francisco, and I dreamed of traveling the country in an RV.
The point is this: our dreams (big and small, realistic and fantastical) help shape the direction of our lives. Every time we dream, we expand the possibilities in our life.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Which of your daydreams do you keep visiting? First we dream, then our actions become aligned with those dreams, and then we’re living the dream. Of course, it’s not always as easy as 1-2-3, and it could take literally decades for some of those dreams to come to life.
Energy and persistence conquer all things.
Having dreams, exploring the possibilities, and pondering the vast universe of promise is absolutely a joy in itself. The excitement of my husband, dog, and me criss-crossing the country in an RV, lingering in towns we love, visiting friends and family is a dream I’m not quite ready to replace with something else. I don’t know that I’ll ever do it – but I know that if I stop dreaming, I definitely won’t.
Dreams are true while they last, and do we not live in dreams?
Alfred Lord Tennyson
Have your dreams become murky over the years? Did you have dreams and gave them up because . . . life happened? Maybe it’s time to get back in touch with those dreams. What would you like to do? What would you like to experience? Start simple and expand as far as your mind can travel.
Dreams are today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions.
