I have a problem with the word dream...

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

One of my best friends collects anything and everything that includes the word dream. Posters, mugs, tattoos...she's got it. She adores the word and aspires to live it every day. I, myself, am in a loveitbut situation.

Nothing wrong with the word. Nothing wrong with having dreams. The problem I have with it is how passive it is. Dreaming implies wishing for something, all the planning with none of the action. You can dream forever and never be hurt because you never...did...anything...but dream.

Dream away, but don't get stuck there. They'll never be a reality without some trying to go along with that dreaming.

    I totally agree. Dream big or dream small. Then DO IT.

    There may be two ways of looking at this, both right. To dream , according to Websters is to have a vision of something ideal. To "have a dream" is to imagine it possible.

    Very good insight! Action is important, too!

    Maybe by 'Dream' you friend is thinking 'envision"...some think a 'dream' is a symbol of your subconscious speaking...and they set out to understand this internal language. Not disagreeing...or challenging you...I just think a place where you can devour a cake and look like a swimsuit super model...can't be all bad.Dwayne Dryer has some interesting lectures...(they're calorie free too!)...
    Happy Venting! I enjoyed the thoughts you provoked! emoticon
