Life happens and seldom is it what we had dreamed about but we learn to roll with the peaks and troughs. Desperate for that perfect partner whom we pin so many hopes and dreams on. Expecting them to fulfil our every desire is a task that few can live up too.
Hankering for that perfect home and family. Seeking a purposeful position in a supportive workplace, material wealth, close friendships, good health, credentials and kudos … denying those dreams maybe unrealistic.
Yet once we lose the ability to dream a vital part of our self is lost. Such a loss impacts our hopes and optimism. Being a realist doesn’t mean erasing all aspirations. So if you are a dreamer, come in … tone down those expectations, live within our means, nurture those around us, enjoy more device free time, explore nature and dream on!
