How far would you go to live your dreams?
dream - /drēm/ - contemplate the possibility of doing something or that something might be the case
goal - /gōl/ - the object of a person’s ambition or effort; an aim or desired result
I used to have dreams. I used to believe that my dreams, especially those that I had when I slept, had meaning. I lived on the hope that certain dreams were a sign of things to come.
Turns out, they were just that: dreams. They were my mind contemplating the possibility of something. By hanging onto what I felt my dreams were telling me, I was only hurting myself. So I quit believing in my dreams. Instead I focused on my goals.
I’ve always been a goal driven person. Usually when I put my mind to something, I can achieve it. I wanted a new life even if it took me thousands of miles from where I started. I wanted to better myself and give myself opportunities. I put my mind to it and I within two months I achieved my goal.
My goals are always something that I can achieve, one way or another. One goal of mine is to let my past go. It’s harder some days than others to do that, especially when the past keeps popping back into my life, but I’m slowly working toward my goal.
Nothing will stop me from reaching my goals. I will always work toward them, especially when it involves bettering myself. My goals are my ambition. They are my drive. They are my purpose.
I’ll leave the dreams to my nighttime mental wanderings and consider them wishful thinking.
