“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.” –Gloria Steinem
When was the last time you dreamed? Whether you allowed your mind to wander to a faraway place during the middle of the boring workday, or if your mind came alive at night, dreaming is an important part of our lives.
While our unconscious dreams may not always signal something we should take on in the waking world, opening ourselves up and welcoming our dreams can help us live more fulfilling lives.
Too often we nix our dreams before they even have a chance to take root. We think they are too impractical or unreasonable, and we veto them before we give them a shot. But what’s the alternative? We get caught living a life we don’t fully want.
Don’t be afraid to be a dreamer. It’s OK to have your head in the clouds from time to time, and it’s certainly OK to pursue a life that no one but you understands.
