Getting my dream back

Popularity 12Viewed 21102 times 2013-5-27 10:18 |System category:Life| dream

I can't remember exactly when i began to lose my dream and the courage to dream for bright and beautiful things. And i guess it must be the time that fear to the so called reality started to take the space over 50% in my heart, which broke the balance in pursuing a peaceful but positive and active lifestyle. Meanwhile, i began to lose confidence and always feel timid to be myself and express myself. Sometimes, i even thought it was a misery to live even though it is wrong and dangerous to keep such an attitude toward life, i just can't stop thinking in that way.
 
It's really high time for me to make some change, though i know it will be hard and i should be brave enough to step forward and to get back my confidence and to get my dream, i will try as possible as i can. I will do this not only for myself, but also for my beloved ones and people who love me in their deep heart.It's never too late to learn, i believe i can make it.

A dream is like a tree, a vine or their roots.  Like the branches, stems or roots of plants our dreams are a means for us to reach out in to the world to think of possibilities and options.  To think of pleasures, growth and responsibilities that can develop and enhance our lives.  We have these dreams when we are awake and conscious, or in day dreams or while we sleep when we loose ourselves in the dream.  We use these dreams to rejuvenate ourselves and give us ideas to pursue.

Dreams do sometimes come in to obstacles and sometimes abrupt ends. This is a moment to reassess where did the dream take us what avenues of the dream are still thriving and open to further growth.  If you learned something and built stamina for the future that part of the dream may have come to its natural conclusion.  This is the same for a tree that grows roots in many directions in the search of water. Some of the roots will find water, some will find an obstacle like a boulder or the open face of a cliff, and some of the roots will be cut by a shovel. What do these roots do they start to grow and reach in a different direction to continue their search for nutrients.

When a dream comes to an obstacle we need to evaluate which direction we want to continue our dream. Sometimes we are so committed to our dream we keep at it until we overcome the obstacle, sometimes we let our dream lead us in a different direction.

I wish you luck with your dreams, overcoming your challenges and finding what makes you healthy, happy and prosperous.  Often if you focus on the first two they will bring you the third.

You have more courage than you might think. You can be happy and fulfilled in your life. Sometimes life seems like a dark room. But suddenly you turn and see a glimmer of light. You walk towards that light. The closer you get to it, the brighter it gets. Keep looking at the light. Life will change. Believe in yourself and know that others believe in you. I believe in you.

You mentioned "the courage to dream for bright and beautiful things". Once I heard an inspiring advice to become dreamers in the best sense. Have the courage to dream about the "bright and beautiful things" as vividly as you can! That is why we are here for.    I also once stopped dreaming, and that was a big mistake. Your post has reminded me all of that, thank you!

Sure you have every right to dream big and then fight hard for anything that is beautiful and wonderul! Just believe in yourself and never stop trying. Only time will tell.

Dream is always a bright light ahead of us, leading us to a right direction. No matter what it will become, fails or succeed, dream encourages us to do something we like or we are interested in. A positive guiding is from our dream.

Sometimes i feel the same as you. It is easy for everyone to forget his dreams sometimes, but what matters most is that he will stand again and go back to the pursuing track.
When I lose myself, I will watch some positive movies to cheer myself up. Yesterday, I watched the Shawshank Redemption again, and felt motivated greatly.
Come on, dear. good luck for you

Dear hanhan, thanks a lot for your nice words, i found myself being busy earning a life in the past 2 years, sometimes i felt that i i ccould not catch up with the time moving, and also became less passionate than i have always been, and never be happy as easily as i was when i was a young girl. I also like the movie Shawshank Redemption,it is a real Inspirational movie. Any way, we have to be positive, life is too short, we don't have time to waste on negative emotions. Wish you a very happy 2016, and good luck for your lifetime!
