… For too long.
They might remain dreams that were most probably meant to be lived. The regret for not following them will hurt more than the sting of a potential failure, especially since “a failure is not always a mistake, it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying”, according to Mr. Skinner. “What a mistake. I shouldn’t have followed my dreams” said no one ever! It can be scary at the time and the thought of failing can overshadow your dream but I strongly believe that the best dream is the one you can call a project, either on a personal or professional note.
“To live a life without a dream is like being a bird with clipped wings.
You might fly but un-adventurously so, never too high nor too far” Audrika Von Benucci
Without dreams, who are we after all? A body without a purpose? An empty canister?
Have you ever wondered whether you were taking the right decision or have you waited for the so famous (oh well too famous) right moment to follow your dreams? If both answers are yes, then you might want to consider putting down on paper what your dearest and deepest dream is and turn this one onto a project.
You want to start your own business? Go for it! You want to walk from France to China? Go for it! You want to write a novel? Go for it! Like the old English proverb asserts ‘where there’s a will there’s a way’, ask Rosa Park, Stephen Hawkins, J.K. Rowling or Amancio Ortega (Damn you, Ortega! I spent way too much time and money in your stores!). They didn’t quit pursuing their dreams so why should you, why should I?
This is why I am jumping
For the best I am hoping
With both feet
Not to, ever again, feel incomplete
Without looking back
Not to, ever again, be on the wrong track
Watch that space
To know more
About what I am about to embrace!
Happy trails and remember: Carpe Diem!
