“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ? Mark Twain
It’s okay to be a dreamer, to live in the what ifs and why nots. When you’re dreaming, you’re creating—making something
new and original of what was once stale and routine. Dreaming is not a naïve pleasure, a cop out from the responsibilities of real life. Dreaming is a bold pursuit which forces you to wonder what might happen if you weren’t afraid to fail. The dreamers of the world are often disregarded by society until one day everything they’ve been dreaming about finally comes true.
So stop for a second, pause, let your shoulders relax and breathe in and out. Now do what used to come naturally, what children spend so much of their days doing, and dream a little. Let your mind wander to the future, think about what you would do if nothing could stop you, and then take a little bit of that hope and transplant it into your reality. See, don’t you feel better already?
