Huh? That’s an odd title for a blog post, right?
Think about it – Build Castles in the Air. Impossible, right? Well, that was somebody’s thought. Otherwise, it wouldn’t exist. So, someone had the idea, the dream, to build castles in the air. Others said it was impossible. Maybe even, that’s a dumb dream.
Yesterday, I posted a video in my blog and I didn’t get any comments. I HOPE its just because people didn’t want to share their dreams, I’m ok with that. I also HOPE its NOT because people don’t have dreams any more. No, not the kind you have while sleeping, the kind you had when you were a little kid, or a teenager, or a young adult with the world at your feet. You had dreams then, didn’t you?
What happened? Did life get in the way?
Did you forget about your dream(s)?
Did people tell you they were dumb? silly? impossible?
What’s your “Castle in the Air” dream? You know, the one that secretly, you think will never come true. The one other people told you was impossible. Maybe even the one that got pushed aside when life got in the way.
I had a “Castle in the Air” dream once. Many years ago. I never forgot it, but I did forget about all the “dreams really do come true” part of life. Then, I came across this quote:
So, yes, I printed it and framed it. Yes, its hanging on the wall in the hallway of our home. No, I don’t read it every single day. But, I know its there. Oh, and yes, there is a really great story behind WHY I printed it, framed it and hung it on the wall. It has something to do with the man in the photo. Yes, I will blog my story.
But not today.
Today is about encouraging you to HAVE a dream. Don’t have one? Go get one! It has to be YOUR dream, for YOU. What do YOU dream about for YOU. Is it a litle teeny tiny dream that you can accomplish this week? OR, is it a big, audacious dream that will take you years to make it come true? Either way, its good. You now have a dream. THAT is important.
” Oh geez, why bother? My dreams never come true. Been there, done that. No, “dreams will come true” for me.”
If that’s the thought going through your head right now. Stop it. STOP IT RIGHT NOW. Promise yourself that you won’t go there again. Now, think really, really hard. Have a dream? Write it down. Imagine it actually coming true.
What will that feel like for you?
