When I grow up I want to be a hair dresser. That was when I was around 4 years. When I grow up I want to be a doctor. That was around 12 years old. When I grow up I want to be a mathematician like Professor George Saitoti. That was since I was in high school. These are all dreams that I had in my heart and mind rotating from admiration around. Many a time, I focus on the dreams and the future that I forget the present. What I can be and not what I am. Where am going, not the path am on currently. Where I want to be, not where I am. Focused on the projection, not the position, getting all tied up in the circle of dreams. We forget what we can do now.
Dreams are good and important. For Langston Hughes wrote a poem saying,
Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.
Everyone has a dream and I love dreaming as well. I dream of being so many things: a role model, a respectable lady, a wonderful friend to many, an amazing chef and so on. It gives me a goal, a purpose, an aim, direction that I should take, so dreams are important. However, don’t go and dream of being the next James Bond and start jumping on airplanes. You are going to get sued, my friend, and you will not like the trip in a mental hospital as well #justsaying. Dream a dream that’s bigger than you for it won’t hurt but give you a limitless space. Don’t dream of being a mathematician like Professor George Saitoti but being better than him, come on Liz.
Someday am going to be a very influential speaker. Someday I’ll climb Mt. Everest. Someday am going to be famous. Well, using “someday” that’s not going to help you sweet heart. Saying today I will apply for that job that I’ve always wanted will. We forget what we can do now in the present. Start turning dreams into reality and there you have it. Start turning your dreams into reality by not following the intoxicated notion of YOLO but living it like it your last and you don’t want to get out of here without seeing your dream turning to reality. “You Only Live Once”…NO!!! I would say am going to do today what I can not what I think I can.
The secret of turning your dream to reality I don’t think its consistency but you. It’s all about you.
