Why is being a dreamer looked on as if it is some kind weakness or failure? I never understood when people commented on another by saying, “he/she is such a dreamer.” Why would that be a bad thing? The greatest people in our history were dreamers and the greatest people in our future, will be the dreamers of today. The only thing that you need to realize if you are a dreamer is that you cannot spend ‘all’ your time dreaming, there has to be action that comes with it or else everything remains a dream. Only then can being a dreamer have any negative association. Unless of course if it makes you happy, then dream all you want.
People today put too much attention on the material aspects and have stopped that child like feeling that anything is possible, that we can achieve great things no matter what the odds or circumstances. Why is that when we see someone who has broken through and achieved something we think that they must be extremely talented, lucky, connected or all three? We are all create equal, we are all handed our own array of pro’s and cons we have to work with and we all begin our lives dreaming and wishing of how our life could turn out.
It is never to late to realize a dream, or at least part of a dream. For every journey we take in life, the destination is not always what we expect it to be, but the journey we take will bring new perspective, new dreams and help us understand who we are, if only a little bit. Every journey is worth trying, every dream worth dreaming and everyone has the option to experience both. Start a journey somewhere today, you never now where you may end up i this life.
