Dreaming....

From an early age or until you breathe your last breath you dream. We dream of many things,mostly material possession, some dream for things that may better the world,however what if you can't dream? How can a person feeling dead an out of luck hope an dream. Many dreams are not easily obtainable, which is why most of the time it remains a dream and never a reality. In my life I've dreamt a lot, many of my dreams havent come true, partly due to my laziness or sense of urgency in pursuing that dream and some dreams faded into obscurity because of the urge to pursue another dream.


The great thing about dreaming is that no one can tell you how to dream, yes others may try to live their dreams through you or try to criticize the dream you have, but in the end the dream will ultimately always be your dream. At this point in my life all of the dreams I've had have either slipped away or not been pursued, I wanted to be a N.B.A player like most inner city kids, hell at one point I wanted to be Eva Pigford's love slave. Now I dream of obtaining the American Dream, Big house, cars, 2.5 kids, wife and dog etc etc But I feels like I have dreamer's block almost as if I don't have the same drive to dream as strongly as I did as a kid, Don't get me wrong I dream of certain things I would like to do or try to obtain but at this juncture of life can I afford to risk my dream from potentially getting me where I need to be at this point? I know the old saying is always follow your dreams but what if there's too much on your plate and you can't afford to take that chance on a dream? Nothing should hinder you from dreaming, however life is serious and you don't have many chances to make things happen but is it worth risking it all to follow a dream that may not pan out?

lmao @ 2.5 kids...that's so true about "having to much on your plate to take a chance on a dream". thats like having a family of 10, with 5dollars to feed them but the lottery is going for 520 million. Would you sacrifice that five and take away what could possibly feed your family on a what if choice? I probably would or wouldn't, due to the advantages or disadvantages of my current decision. Life is just to damn hard or Im just spolied into thinking everything should be handed to me whole heartedly which by the way is very bad.

you gotta step out of your comfort zone to ever realize a dream...

thats why most dreams stay in the mind.

Its worth the risk. I have a lot, and I mean a lot, on my plate, but I am not giving up on my dreams. I believe if you really want to make your dreams a reality, you can do it no matter the strain it may cause or the price you might pay. It may be hard, but the journey is half, if not all, the satisfaction of achieving a dream. If you don't go after your dreams, is it really worth dreaming anymore?

I say try your best because in the end if you don't go for your dream you might end up regretting it and thats the worst feeling, the "what if" dread

" Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible and achieves the impossible" That's the quote I live by.

Always go after you dreams,never stop otherwise it will always be a dream and that just wack.If you fight hard enough you can accomplish anything.

I feel that we mst always dream in order to keep a positive drive. But as yo get older the dreams have 2 be more reasonable and reachable. The dreams that you have now you are definitely gonna reach and you are already make progress 2wards em.

You're young. If you want to go after something, don't wait on it. The longer you wait, the more complicated things get. At this point, you only have to worry about feeding yourself, not a family. Do it while your life is less complicated, because as complicated as your life may seem today, I guarantee it will seem more complicated in 5 years. TRUST!!! Putting of a degree, for example, until you are 25 is much easier than putting it off until you are 30. Just some food for thought

I would always paint a picture for myself of EXACTLY where I wanted to be before going to sleep at night.

I would spend the next day doing all I could to get to that place.

The strategy has worked well.

Except for that basketball thing.

I thought that I would run PG for Michigan.

This was around the time the Fab 5 bust onto the scene.

Without dreams, what do we have?

This is real cause it hits close to home with me. Hell, I dream EVERYDAY about my future. Dead ass, I dream and developed so much faith that I already claimed my future...
