Everyone needs Dreams. I think it's what defines us as human - and IMO over even speech, opposable thumbs and KFC
, because intrinsically linked to the human need to see what is over "that" hill. and quite often to stand on top of it
To strive, to acheive & to make tommorow better requires
dreams because otherwise the thought would never occur to climb that hill.
As someone who has struggled with a lack of Dreams over the last few years (and IME directly linked to the (not worth) getting out of bed
thing, mostly only metaphorically
) it's taken me a while to appreciate not only the importance of having any
Dream(s) in the grand scheme of things (or the small DOJ
end at least
) - but that it's Ok to acquire new Dreams, give old Dreams away or otherwise do WTF you want with 'em (except take someone elses away - IMO that
should be a capital offence
Not acheiving Dreams is not
failure as the important end was having had them in the first place, even if the conclusion was to give them back to those now long gone................The only people who acheive all their Dreams are those who clearly have only Limited imaginations
Gotta remember that the first man stood on the Moon was not the first with the idea. or the first to wonder: "what's over that hill?".
In my case my present Dream is at the early stages (i.e. still plenty of tasks to undertake and no goals acheived
- but Dream firmly in place
)..........is to build a Pyramid bigger than anything the Pharaohs did
and to last longer
...........and to make money
That last one is unsurprisingly where the work is focused
I figure if Shah Jahan could build the Taj Mahal for his late Missus, then DOJ
can do much the same - I think she'd like that. and call me a f#cking idiot (our catchphrase
- well, hers
I reckon you folks will hear about it when I get The Pyramid "off the ground"
...........anyway, as part of today's tasks I am now off to do some grocery shopping
- in Iceland
- I too iz Livin' da dream
