Dreams: A Soulful Companion

Ask yourself if what you are doing today is getting you closer to where you want to see yourself tomorrow.”
Dreams. Some fulfilled, others untold. We always have a picture of where we want to be and what we want to achieve in life. That’s what makes us dream. Being able to bring our dreams to reality is bliss, the struggle behind the journey is not worth describing in words. Life is a roller coaster ride, undoubtedly, and wherever it may take us, whatever are the plans, dreams walk by us. Life neither resembles an abyss, nor it is a paradise. You have to work your tail off till the celebrations await. Once you aspire to something, your will and wit are the authors of destiny.
A Japanese proverb says, “Fall seven times, stand up eight.” Perseverance is one of the most important virtues. Hardly anyone succeeds in the first attempt or even in their second- you just have to keep going on till you reach the destination. If you stop trying or making efforts for what you want to achieve in life, no superpowers will bring you closer to your aspirations. “Life is all that happens when you are busy working on the other plans”, says a column of a magazine kept at a corner shelf at a hospital’s waiting area. Many of us would like to have a peaceful ride, enjoy the present moment, yet we cannot help but make plans so we feel secure. It’s not that we should not make plans, but that the true experience of being alive is beyond those plans, and that way, life “happens”.
