Dreams come in all forms. The one I had last night was a prime example of all of the outside forces in my world coming together in a blend of incongruous ideas. But dreams keep life exciting. Dreams are the wishes we make for ourselves and hold close to our hearts.
I have several dreams – some seem absolutely attainable and others seem light years from my perception of reality but I hold those dreams as close as the wishes that dangle at the tips of my outstretched fingers. Those delusions of grandeur make me strive, not only to succeed but, to make my life as close to my image of perfection as possible.
Dreams give us motivation. Dreams make the mundane tasks of everyday life seem that much more bearable. Dreams can transport us from reality into a glimpse of a microcosm so far from our daily routine that the mere idea seems absurd. But those dreams give us hope. Even though those desires convey the impression of being impervious to our concept of life as we know it, we still need to maintain the assumption that dreams come true. The strength of our imagination makes dreams become more plausible and leaves a door open to a world beyond the essence of our day-to-day life. Those dreams make us breathe.
My dreams have no restrictions. I dream small and I dream big. The image below is one of my big dreams and one that I cannot seem to let go. I want to own a Morgan. I have had an infatuation with this car since the late 1980’s. I can visualize it in my driveway. I can picture what I am wearing when I drive it. It has gone from passion to craving. Oddly enough, I was looking through some old family photo albums and came across a picture of my dad standing in front of a Morgan on one of his trips to Florida. I had no idea this obsession was genetic!

I will never give up this dream, or any of my dreams. The intensity I feel when I think about this car only fuels my desire to make this dream a reality. Many of my dreams may not come to fruition but that will never quench my desire to make those fantasies become real. The day I live without a dream is the day I stop living.
Never give up on your dreams. The day we stop thinking we can have something is the day we give up. Dreams give us hope. Dreams give us a drive to succeed. Dreams make us realize that all things are possible if we only choose to believe.
