“There is a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.” ~ William Shakespeare.
And lose our ventures indeed.
We dream and we fly high – we achieve and we set new dreams. We fall flat sometimes but we have to pick ourselves, shake off the dust and get back into the game.
Yet sometimes we leave our dreams in the hands of others – for them to make it happen. Why, I ask? Why would you dream so high – in complete detail only to let your dreams fall flat through the fingers of another?
Why may I ask would you not try to make your dream a reality? Why does your dream depend on timings and conveniences of others? If it is your dream – your own magical creation conjured up in the folds of life – why oh why does it depend on the other?
I will never understand. I will not try.
Perhaps it is how we want to share our dreams- perhaps it is who we want to share these dreams with. Perhaps it is those fingers that drop your dreams that you really want.. Perhaps – perhaps – perhaps!!
But its your dream- and you have got to live it. Find a person who cares about your dream – and then share it with them.
But never – never let your dream die. For when it dies – you stop believing. You stop dreaming. And ultimately everything around you becomes a bore.
If you want to travel somewhere – go – see the world. Seek your comfort in tales around bonefires and starry skies.
If you want to be someone – set your mark and go for it.
If you want to get married- go – get married in style and have a fairytale wedding.
Whatever it is you want – give it a shot. Don’t let your dreams fall through anothers hands. They’re your dreams for a reason.
