What an appropriate day to talk about dreams. Having a dream allows us to think positive, have a healthy outlook on life, and create optimism. Whether the dreams are pure entertainment or ones to make into reality, we need them.
Pure entertainment dreams are those we would like but may be far-fetched. For example, you’ve always wanted to be a rock star, up on stage belting out tunes and playing every instrument with perfection. However, if you can’t carry a tune or keep up the beat this may be a stretch to accomplish. But this doesn’t mean that you can’t fulfill the dream. You can still dream it in your head which can lift your spirits and stay positive.
The dreams that you want to become a reality can be personal, worldly, small, and large. Have all. For the personal dreams, think about how you can fulfill that dream on a small scale. Take the rock star example above. You can turn the music up in your living room and sing your heart out and play air drums without anyone watching. You are living out the dream for yourself.
For worldly dreams, think how we can make the planet a better place to live. If that’s too large, think of your area. Envision how you can help someone else and how respect and kindness can go a long way. This may mean a rude awakening for some, but it gets the motivation going. Actions and speech can help others and change attitudes for a better way of life. Small steps can turn into big steps.
