Dreams for sale!! A dream fulfilled for 10 bucks or less!!
How nice it would be….. pay a little… and all dreams fulfilled…
What would you buy if there was such a sale?? I started making my list which, among a lot of other things, contained :
- Re- live a few moments of my past probably (Who wouldn’t want to correct your past mistakes?)
- Set off on a backpacking trip to Leh, and enjoy watching the snow capped mountains from there
- A sky diving package
And the list went on and on…never ending … just went on and on
But wait..What next? Now that all dreams have been fulfilled, what would I live for? Would life be as fun as it is now, with all its ups and downs, if all your dreams got fulfilled so easily , with you having to put no effort at all ? All I’d do then is save money to buy my dreams… Would such a life be really worth living ? Would I cherish the moment where I witnessed my dreams coming true, as I do today, if I “bought” their turning into reality ? Or would life just be taken for granted ? The dreams could be as materialistic as wanting to watch a movie tomorrow with my best friends , or wanting to enjoy a little chat with them over wine and dinner. It could be as big as wanting to heal the world of all its poverty ,as unrealistic as wanting to re-live “parts” of my past with a different attitude, or as little as wanting to watch the sun set in Leh,by myself, with no one around to disturb me
All of my life’s beauty would be lost if I didn’t do all I could to make my dreams come true . Life, in itself, would be taken for granted .
Life as I live it would be satisfying only if I have something to look forward to or work towards everyday… That something could be anything.. a smile to return to at home, or a trip to Leh after 6 months .Probably that’s what my dreams provide me with – a reason to celebrate the fact that I’m alive, work towards achieving them and take life with all it has to offer, good or bad in my stride…
So that’s what it is. My dreams are necessary for me to “Live” or be satisfied with life. Some of them need to be shattered into pieces for better ones to take their place. Some of them , with time and action , turn into reality. From this action, some more dreams take birth. This interdependence of dreams on reality and reality on dreams makes life worth living.
Imagining dreams being turned on sale like this, in itself seems to be an unrealistic dream 🙂 . If everything in the world could be bought so easily, we would have nothing left to live for!
