05 Sep Would You Dare Say It?
Your dream? Specifically? With detail?
Would you profess it aloud? So everyone knows you’re going for it?
What’s the risk? That it doesn’t come true and everyone knows?
The truth is, if you write it down and hang it on the wall in a public place, like your workplace, it will stare you in the face like a laser-beam when the dream goes unfulfilled. You’ll cry.
And they’ll all know you failed.
But they’ll all know you went for it, too, the way I know my friend went for it when I saw her dream on the wall. Literally. She hung it up for all of us to see.
I know what she was shooting for.
And I now know it didn’t happen as planned.
But I am so moved by her courage to dream boldly and tell the world about it.
She’s sad, I’m sorry, and yet I’m inspired by her beauty.
What if an honest effort towards anything great is the accomplishment of a dream in itself? What if a genuine effort to create anything meaningful is more than enough to inspire?
There will be good endings and bad. But, oh, to dream!
I say, dream on. Dream on the wall for us to see.
