It is the first thing you think about when you wake up and the last thing on your mind before you go to bed. You think about it with every breath you take and every move you make. Sometimes you feel so close to it but yet so far away. It’s your dreams!
I know you are probably asking yourself questions like “Will my dreams ever come true?”, “What am I doing wrong?”, and “Am I crazy for still believing?”. I can’t answer those questions but allow me to put things in perspective for you. Everything that you have went through or are going through in your pursuit to reach your dreams is for a reason. It is all a test and your experiences are your study guide for success. That big ole “NO” that you received when you just knew that you were going to get a big fat “YES” was not for discouraging purposes but within some good possible reasons.
Possible Reason #1: Appreciation;sometimes it takes being denied opportunities to reach our dreams to make us embrace it that much more when we do. This makes room for humility because everybody won’t get to see if the grass is indeed greener on the other side.
Possible Reason #2: Motivation; some of us are not aware of how bad we want something until we face rejection pertaining to our dreams. This enables us as dreamers to prove ourselves in which we ultimately find out how great we can really be at what we are hoping to accomplish.
Possible Reason #3: Maturation; sometimes we think we are ready for all that reaching our dreams entails when the truth of the matter is, we still may have a few other things to work on. A lot of these things we may have to work on may not be directly related to our dreams but what we need to be able to maneuver through our dreams.
Possible Reason #4: Dedication; everyone is not built to endure hard work and this separates those who are worthy of their dreams coming true from those who just aren’t. It doesn’t matter if it takes twenty years, if one decides to “stay the course” something great and beneficial will come out of it.
Possible Reason #5: Hesitation; we often like to think that we know what we want when in actuality we really don’t. Life has a way of not working out the way we want it to when we want it to. This for the sake of giving us time to be sure of what it is we really want, prompting us to change our minds or to start over if necessary.
Dreams do come true and just because it doesn’t happen when you want it to, does not mean that it won’t ever happen. Don’t put an expiration date on your dreams and don’t put them in a box either. Patience is virtue and dreams are not that far from reality. If you can dream it, you can achieve it!
