What will I believe about my dreams?
It is true that those who see the glass half full may oft be deemed unrealistic and out of touch, aloof with matters present be.
And yet, there we are. Faced with two choices on any given day, in any given situation, one must decide to either believe the best possible thing could happen or hang the proverbial hat on the rack of impossibility.
I also believe that many of us are a mixture of both, and some might say that is balance. Others might say such thought contradicts itself.
The phrase “it just might work” has probably been uttered countless times since ancient days by inventors and entrepreneurs, dreamers and pursuers of greatness.
Write down your hopes and dreams, sprinkle them with a bit of glitter, and let the breeze of opportunity blow upon them. Chase the bits of light and see where they go.
Are you an artist? Create with your best effort. Establish your why, your motivator. What drives you? Maybe you are more logical, and you say creativity flees you. But you can push up weights and run countless miles, faster and longer than others you know.
One look at my friends list, and on any given day, I see a number of dreams popping all over the place. One girl takes selfies as she jumps out of an airplane. Another sweats in the gym at 4 a.m. An elegant lady paints the most beautiful snapshots of country life in impressionist style. The list goes on. A realtor shines as she unlocks the key for a couple’s future. A deputy rescues the downtrodden, endangered, saves lives and then makes dinner for her family. Countless others are at various places in their education journey. One just finished her PhD. And one friend with Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer still fights the fight and lives each day with nothing less than her all, leaving a trail of inspiration for all of us who are honored to watch her sparkle.
A glass half full accomplishes much.
For all these, by not only believing their dreams would come true, but also by applying the corresponding effort, saw great things come to life.
