Inspiration – dreams

Inspiration header


I was reading the fab blog of Gala Darling and spotted this amazing piece about the Value of Dreams.

She says:

I cracked open this fortune cookie last week. I smiled when I read the slip of paper, and then started thinking about what this actually meant.

We all have dreams when we’re young, but more often than not, when we get to a certain age, we start to get the message that our grandest plans and wildest notions are just silly. Unrealistic.

“You’ll never make any money doing that,” our well-meaning friends and family crow at us.

And so we start to file those dreams away in the folder entitled “Maybe in another lifetime”.

Sure: life has its certain, unavoidable realities. There’s rent to pay, groceries to acquire, and taxes to cough up. But you can’t let those things — and the people who talk about them — frighten you into a life of mediocrity.

The world is full of people who will make fun of your dreams, attempt to talk you down to their level, or try to persuade you that something else would be a more “sensible” use of your time.

But the only people who scoff at dreams are the ones who didn’t have the guts to go after what they really wanted.

Don’t be one of them.”


LOVE! Thanks Gala. Read the full post here.
