How many of us buy a lottery ticket 'just in case?' We all have plans for that money, right? We have mentally divided again and again, changing the plans that we previously had. Oh, to dream. We dream of life, family fortune, but truly at the basis of our dreams is happiness or what we perceive happiness to be.
Imagine if we were not able to dream. This world would be so boring. I mean really.
We do deserve to keep that child-like part of us that allows us to be open to what to us is the unimaginable. They say that everybody has a dream; I believe that it is more like everybody has dreams. There are only a few that live within their dreams. They find contentment. Imagine what it would be like to be content. To be content. Not giving up a piece of yourself to be who you truly are. That is crazy right? Not really.
It is completely unfathomable to me to imagine how much a dream could change my life. It doesn't even have to be a literal lottery; it could be a lottery of life. Small victories are things that allow you to achieve your dreams. There are people out there who look around at the small house/apartment and dream about a bigger place. We hope and pray for the opportunities to be bestowed upon us so that we can achieve our dreams. When we are in a state of inertia, then we will go nowhere. When we move just a little, we can build up the speed to achieve something that seemed impossible. Small victories, that's it. Do you honestly think that highly successful people knew that they would end up where they are when they began their journey?
Put your head in the clouds and be proud of it. It is a rare breed of person who allows the bidding of the universe to interweave their souls to the rhythm of everyday life. Chance is a big part of your life. Do not be afraid to dream. It is what keeps us honest and sane. Honest because we still possess that child-like spirit; sane because we are still aware that we have things to live for, aim for and achieve.
Happy does it... ;o)
