Dream Like a Child

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer.” — Harriet Tubman

There are two thoughts that come to mind when I hear the word ‘dream’. On the one hand, I imagine the place that we visit when we fall asleep at night. It is a world with unrealistic parameters where we have no control and our size is diminished to childlike proportions.

Contradictively, I also think of a dream as a goal that must be realistically worked towards. Our dreams are the very essence of who we are in the real world and what we can accomplish if we do not lose focus.

But it feels like there is something missing when we separate the two. I want to make sure that the goals that I work towards remind me of being a child. We remove the boundaries from around what is possible when we let our imagination run free.

I want a life where I can’t wait to wake up in the morning because I’m living my dreams every day.

Bigger than myself it may be, but that is a dream. It seems that those deemed most impossible are the ones that change the world.

I have a dream. What’s yours?
