I was having a discussion with a friend the other day when two disturbing questions – at least disturbing to me – came up in the conversation. When do we face reality? When do we let the dream go?
My take is that we never give up. We always have our dreams. Dreams are like lives. They are living things – always changing, always evolving, always re-shaping. We may make an adjustment or change but the dream is always there, always looking to be pursued.
Many times we may stumble on our way reaching the dream but it is there, always giving us hope that we can obtain it. Sometimes, the dream will taunt us, allowing us to get close but not touch it. That is just a test to see how badly we truly want the end result. Sometimes, the dream will morph on its own, into something more obtainable for us.
Do you settle – in your professional life, in your personal life? What are your dreams?
