It’s not enough to think about the future, and it’s certainly not enough to fear it. I believe in dreaming, and I believe dreaming is one of the greatest phenomenons among us, for only those who believe in their dreams are those who should be feared.
I dream. I dream, a lot. I dream when I wake up and I dream when I sleep. God’s work and beauty in the sky above helps me to dream of what heaven is like, and the smell of fresh cut grass helps me to dream of home.
Hearing a professor lecture helps me dream of the future and what it holds for me. Being surrounded by my family gives me dreams of happiness with them for years to come.
Dreams in the present, for me, are rare. I like to think in the future and I like to believe that happiness lies there for each and every one of us. I dream of love when I see young couples, and I dream of everlasting adoration when I see old ones.
Sunrises help me to dream of the ones that are still fast asleep, for they will have joy in their possession once they wake. Sunsets help me to dream of the ones who are curled up on the couch with a cup of coffee about to drift to sleep, or of the ones out with their loved ones having dinner and maybe a glass of wine.
The winter helps me to dream of Christmas and the morning of, with everyone gathered around the tree embracing the smiles and giggles of their closest loved ones. The summer helps me to dream of gentle splashes of water as friends leap in the pool and lemonades in the hands of girls with a sunkissed tan.
Arguments make me dream that peace will overcome the two. Hugs make me dream of infinite peace within each and every person.
Newborns help me to dream of extending my family one day, and funerals help me to dream that heaven gained a new angel.
You see, dreams are a natural routine of mine, with each one holding a diverse meaning. Dreams are beautiful, and they hold a promise that nothing else can hold: goals and new experiences, and hopeful situations. When you dream, you strive for bigger and better days. You strive for situations to be bold and bright and for the years ahead to be merry.
“Yes: I am a dreamer. For 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
Dreaming makes things happen, and they make things real.
“Dream on”, my mother once said when I once asked for something that was out of the question.
“And so I will”, I replied.
