Dreams Keep Us Alive

A Fantasy Called Dreams

Whether the past, present (or for some of you, the future), most people would agree that without our dreams, we’d be lost somewhere in the abyss. Dreams provide direction, meaning and the ability to believe. Without belief, we remain lost. But with it, we dream on. And dreaming is what we want.

Our body requires blood to circulate oxygen, nutrients and waste products. Our mind requires a creative, inspiring and seductive fantasy called dreams. These “things” keep us going when at our lowest and most unattractive states of mind. Did I mention that they keep us going even when elated?

Those who dream consistently and believe them wholeheartedly for years at a time, have a very good chance at achieving them with persistence. Don’t forget consistence – the repetition of persistence. When this formula is applied, (is it a formula?), it makes dreams come true.

The best part of dreams is seeing them play out throughout your life. Sometimes they are accomplished earlier than expected, and you must come up with new ones. And sometimes you can accept a little assistance from a significant other, to help you out with a new dream.

The key is to not look too hard and don’t wait too long. Trust your eye, heart and instinct. If you believe a certain goal accompanied by a beautiful image is worth your time, then by no means, strive for it! But once you start striving for a dream, giving up on it would only be subpar. You can accomplish it with persistence.
