Are they big? Small?
Do you care about them at all?
Will they reach far and wide?
Touch the heavens? Fill the sky?
Are they for you alone? Small in scale,
But grand and grown
with love, joy, wonder.
Could you share them with another?
Off topic for a tiny moment, this picture always brings a smile to me. It looks as if the tree is holding the moon in her thin arms.
Back to dreams, how many of us have put our dreams aside to take care of life. Not the part of life that brings joy, but the part that is required. The chores, to dos, etc.
What does it take to follow a dream?
For me, it’s small steps. Filling my day with pieces that I enjoy, so that all the others things that are required feel more like things I choose to do, rather than things I have to do.
Sometimes, I feel it is fun to just dream. Really big! Knowing that it might not become anything more than a dream. Which is okay, because in the dreaming, it was fun.
Maybe that is why I enjoy writing so much. A lot of it can be a fantasy, which is all in good fun.
What are your dreams? Are you taking steps to achieve them, or are they a delicious distraction?
