Do you ever wish for something? I mean—do you ever really take the time to visualize a certain possibility? Something better? Something new? Something different? Do you want something so bad that you fantasize about it every single day? Maybe its something that no one else knows about, and when you do close your eyes for a moment or two—can you feel it, see it and taste it—like it’s all right there in front of you? Like you’re there? Like you’ve made it already?
I feel like I’ve been drifting into this dreamworld a little bit too often lately and I think others around me are doing the same thing as well. It seems pretty normal for people in my circle to want to get away from their regular lives by using their imagination to see themselves in a particular way—a way which is different than what they have currently. And I guess that makes sense because we are taught as children to believe in ourselves and to portray an image in the public eye which appears to be “socially acceptable.” Somehow though, the depth of our dream has to bottom-out eventually and each person will see themself in a mirror and they’ll think: What the fuck have I become?
When you spend too much time enjoying that fantasy, how long does it take you to finally realize how far you are from actually attaining that reality? Does that realization disillusion you in any way? Does it bring you so far back to down to reality that you want just to give up and go back to what you were doing before? How does day dreaming really affect our real lives? Is it totally healthy to submerge yourself into a false reality? Where is the line really drawn and when does fantasy become insanity?
I don’t imagine my questions will be ever answered in this case but I do still think that it is very important for me to ask them. I think that it’s important for everyone to wonder about the impossible things because once something becomes questioned and wondered—it eventually may come about. The drive that comes from wanting something is powerful enough to give us things like electricity, running water, space travel and the internet—things that once were unimaginable and were only questioned about.
But remember: do not allow your fantasy to become an obsession which disconnects you from your family and friends. Never allow something to take over your life and turn you into something which isn’t human anymore. Keep yourself connected to reality and embrace what is already possible. Take advantage of what has been invented for you to use in your own journey. Everything is possible so we can change it. Don’t be afraid of your own thoughts and don’t be afraid to take chances.
The world is just begging to change! Every day is a new opportunity for you to accomplish something great. It’s another kick at the can for you to finish something you’ve been working on for a long time and have been putting it off. It’s a second chance at life.
A new day came with so many dreams. What’s your dream?
