Life is a Dream… And not all dreams come true. But are we watching right dreams?
I woke up to see a morning of desolation. I was unhappy with my profession, had nothing to do over the weekend, and was perpetually bored with everything about my life.
I was sipping my sun-view-balcony-coffee when my grandpa came out. ‘Awkward’ was my first thought.
After few moments of silence, he said – “So how’s everything working out with you? Living your dream?”
“Huh! My life sucks. All my dreams are just my mind’s imagination. There’s no magical world in real life. There’s no ‘living your dream’…” I said sulkily.
“And doesn’t that provoke you to dump those dreams, and live for real, instead?” he said.
Me: *Blank face*
He continued “Stop imagining your journey, live it in real. But don’t stop dreaming about your destination. And there you go… Your life would be same as your dream. Sooner or later.”
Looking at my stumped face, he smiled and left. I stood there replaying his words over and over again in my mind.
What this taught me was to stop dreaming that things will work out themselves. If I know my destination, then taking the first step is not enough. I’ll have to take lots of steps, several leaps and jumps to cross the hurdles. And that is not something to dream about. That is something to “do”.
Remember, Life’s the only Dream you get to live…
