No Dream is Too Big

Have you ever dreamt of achieving something that your heart always longed for?
And then at one point in time, after much longing,
you gave up the dream because you convinced your heart
that your dream is never going to be true
because it is too big to be achieved?
It’s time to re-think. Re-dream.
Grab the desire that you let go. No dream is too big.

No matter what – Dream. Never stop. You are not the one who quits.
Don’t give a damn about what people think. That’s not for you to care.
The power in dreams is boundless. You won’t know it unless you’ve ventured the world of dreams. It is almost as powerful as magic.
Now, you do believe in magic, don’t you?
It is going to be difficult for you to believe in magic, if for you, it has only existed in Harry Potter movies. Magic is way beyond than just watching people flying on brooms or making things happen with the wave of a stick. So is dreaming. For me, dreaming is like watching magic happen.
We see all sorts of things happen around us when we dream, things we’d never think of.
From the tiniest wish to the gigantic desire of your heart, dreams make everything seem possible.
Then whether that is climbing the tallest peak in the world or something as simple as learning to swim.
Dreams make you believe that no dream is too big to be achieved and it is true as long as you believe in it.

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like if we lived a life devoid of dreams?
No dreams. No wishes. No hopes. How plain would life seem?
Dreams color our rather dull lives. Without dreams, it would have been so difficult to live life through each day.
Just imagine, for a second. Build a fake situation in your mind and say,
I know it is going to be just another day tomorrow with same mundane activities.
Trust me, you just made the day as difficult as it could get.
And not just for you but for everyone around you. The frown you wear will turn off a lot of smiles on faces around you. This is only because you are too tired with life to expect anything new.
And there is a rather strong reason for this. It is not that you haven’t tried.
You have. You’ve dreamt each day, every waking moment. Hoped that someday your dreams will come true.
In the smallest corner of your heart you’ve held onto that dwindling hope.
But fate has been mercilessly killing that hope. So then what do you do?
Do you stop dreaming? Do you stop hoping?
I don’t think so.

You start afresh. Take an example.
When you are writing, by the time you reach the end of the page you are tired.
Sometimes because of what you’ve poured in ink over the paper, sometimes with how much you’ve poured.
But as soon as you turn the page to the next one, there is a renewed bit of joy.
The tiniest bit. But there is. Trust me I go through that each time I sit down to write.
Likewise, when you keep refilling the jar of life with fresh new dreams, the sadness of persevering through old unaccomplished ones fades.
Life somehow seems much easier to live through another day and the next. And that becomes possible only because of the positivity that your dreams fill your mind with.
They make you see and believe that anything is possible. Absolutely anything!

It was just the other day; I’d dreamt that I was cliff-jumping.
If you have been following my blog, you’ll know that I am alto-phobic.
I, therefore live by a dream that I’d go cliff-jumping some day just to kill that fear. Watching this happen in my dream, made me believe that maybe it is not that difficult after all.
That I’d still survive if I go cliff-jumping in reality although it scares me to death.
For a girl like me, that is a dream too big to come true due to my fear of heights.
There are many others.
To own a house is one big dream I constantly ruminate about.
It seems impossible to an extent that I almost nearly give it up.
But then haven’t we always heard that,
Dreams come true only for those who are fearless enough to dream.
Those who don’t dream itself, how can they expect anything?

Dreaming big and hoping for them to come true is not just a fairy-tale idea.
But to make it happen, you must also have enough faith.
Work hard and persevere through thick and thin.
But never give up.
Think of that time when one of your dreams had turned true.
Almost like magic.
And the immense happiness it got you.
After all, even that was supposed to be a dream too big, isn’t it?
