“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” – Pablo Picasso
When we were kids, we all had dreams; some wanted to be a pilot, some wanted to be a talk show host. I wanted to be Batman. These dreams sometimes end up changing the world. Sometimes they change when we get older and as we discover ourselves. Sometimes, the dreams die. And that is the absolute, most dreadful thing to happen to anyone. When we stop dreaming, we stop living life; we merely live through a process, albeit a race to the death.
Why do we stop dreaming? When I left the army, I spoke with my colleagues and we discussed our future plans. Plenty of them have already decided on going into a profession that they disliked. Their reason: it’s easier.
Pursuing your passions can be really tough sometimes. But in the end, it’ll be worth it. It may be easier to be lazy than happy. But where’s the fun in that?
Start dreaming. It’s okay to dream. It’s okay to want things. And it’s okay to work harder to realize your dreams.
I’m a dreamer. Are you?
Tell me about your dreams. I’d love to hear them.
