Dreams! Did you ever have a small dream when you were little? Do you still have that dream nurtured in your thoughts, or maybe in your hearts?
I still do! I do have dreams that are so little and nurtured, so very old dreams, childhood dreams, which has nothing to do related to what I am doing today. Painting a life of your choice is tough. We dream of something, we think about something, we fantasise a lot about our lives being this and that. In reality, we are doing a lot of other things, dealing with matters, which are so real and less fantasising or appealing.
You sometimes even don’t know where you are going, owing to the whirlwind of activities you are stuck in. You aren’t alone anymore, you are a father/mother, a wife/husband, a daughter/son to someone. You have responsibilities and you have someone depending on you.
This is life! This is how everyone lives after childhood and adulthood is over. This is the taste of real life. Don’t let the child in you stop dreaming, that was nurturing itself when you were so young. The childhood dreams that the child in you had, deserves to be kept alive. But don’t let go of small dreams that used to dwell in the corner of your heart. Slow down and learn to enjoy the slow life too!
