“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.” – Oscar Wilde
Let’s be real – having dreams can be difficult in the face of reality. Sometimes the demands of everyday life – work, family, money, etc. – can make it hard not only to achieve your dreams, but even to think of them. Where you are now just seems too far away from where you want to be. At this point, do you hold onto your dreams, having faith that you will figure out how to get there? Or, do you let them go, and focus yourself on the demands of the reality you currently live in?
And, what about dreams that are far-fetched, non-traditional or extremely ambitious? How do you hold onto those dreams? Is it possible to live in reality and still hold onto an extremely ambitious dream?
This post has no answers (yet!), but has a ton of questions. And I’d like your help in answering them. So, what do you think?
- Is it possible to hold onto a dream while still accepting reality?
- How do you keep a dream alive when your current situation is far from it?
- What do you think about non-traditional dreams? Do these take our focus away from the “real” things in our lives?
Thanks for your help! Feel free to leave your answers in the comments section.
