Dream Fall.

I have been off chasing a dream.

Well, one of them anyway. And I am still not there yet. It is amazing how much energy and effort and dedication it takes to materialize anything. Makes me wonder that perhaps it's really because we don't want to put enough effort into our dreams that they never materialize. We imagine that there is always another day to work on it, that perhaps tomorrow, perhaps next month, I will put my act together and actually get to do what I really love. But we never really get to it.

Over time it becomes such an unattainable idea. We have dreamed it so many times that it no longer has any room in the real world because it would just never materialize as perfectly as it has in our minds. We will stumble and fall, and we will fail. We do.

I almost let a dream fall. I was ready to take an eraser to my soul, wipe the dream that I had carried for so long in my heart. The dream had lain dormant for so long that I felt like I no longer walked towards it. So, I was going to let it go. Then I realized that I had confused the stillness of everyday life with not wanting it anymore.

Now, I am trying to not let the real life get in the way of my dreaming.

  4. It is tough to keep your dream strong but we always have to find a way to make it exciting and attainable... I am working on another dream/goal and I am getting excited again... I wish you much success xox

  5. Why do we call it a dream while we are fully awake with all senses alert and we know what we want?Unrealized objectives are the outcome of inadequate effort or impossible goals.

    1. Because even though we are awake, we are making something up that may never materialize. Just like dreams dont.

  7. What is life without chasing a dream?

  8. But may be some dreams can never be materialized. May be they are not destined for you? I have seen people decay in hands of time, efforting endlessly to have their dream and they die in the process or get old. Having lost time, youth, everything and still empty handed. I fear this kind of reality the most.
