I dreamed a dream

You can’t always get what you want.

So goes the saying.

The thing is, everything you dream of, is remarkably possible. This doesn’t mean that dreams don’t come with a price tag, they often do, and the people who are living their dreams paid the price that came along with those figments of visions they had. They ignored the well meaning advice to “ play it safe, you’re comfortable now, why change ? “, they ignored the sleepless nights and the voice of doubt, they put in the hours needed to nurture their dreams, the same way a mother spends countless hours nurturing her child, they fed their dreams the fuel of ambition and the pure grit of hardwork. More importantly, they never ever quit every time Life chose to trip them up in her little tests.

If you want something, you need to want it so much so, that the fear of not ever achieving that something drowns out the words of The Others, the naysayers and non believers. After all, before you’re able to make someone else believe in your dreams, you need to first believe in them.
