Apparently I am a Dreamer.
The question was posed “What do you one day dream of?” I was surprised by the number of people in the room that really had to stop and ponder to come up with a couple things they dreamt of. 7 things quickly came to my mind and 10 without much hesitation. Given a little time I easily had 15.
Yes, I am a Dreamer.
There is much I enjoy and much I aspire to experience in my earthly lifetime. Not only did I realize how much I am a dreamer, but I am also a believer in my dreams. There truly isn’t one of those first 10 dreams that I don’t believe, LORD willing, will someday come true.
I wonder what makes one person a dreamer and another one not. I would think optimism has to have something to do with it. For if you never had the hope inside you to believe a dream could come true I don’t imagine you’d spend much time dreaming.
I am happy and thankful to say: I am a Dreamer. I am a Believer. I am an Optimist.
However, I must admit I do think there can be a downside to being a Dreamer. As a Dreamer, I often get so passionate about my dreams, that if I’m not careful, I miss out on being fully content with where I am in my life and what I am doing right now in the present!
I am reminded today that right now I am living a dream I imagined many, many years ago. For that I am thankful. I pray that I may fully embrace the dream that I am living right now – Yet, in the meantime keep alive dreams for the future!
