If Your Heart is In Your Dream

How many times in your life have you heard someone say derisively, “you dreamer, you” or “get your head out of the clouds, stop dreaming”.

I’m thinking the most important thing to remember is the DOERS in life all had a dream before they had either a plan or began “doing” for themselves. They dreamt about what they wanted to accomplish and then made it happen; someway, somehow. You need look no further than the hundreds of thousands of quotes by leaders, scientists, philosophers, artists and so on. They had the dream first!

Helen Keller, 1880-1968

Helen Keller comes to mind. Here was a woman, who as a small child, became ill and was struck deaf, blind, and dumb. An unteachable wild child living in emptiness and darkness. But one person, Ann Sullivan, had a dream. Ann dreamed and believed she could help Helen learn to communicate – and she did.

She taught an unteachable child to communicate, and the child learned. And from there, the child developed a dream of her own. To become educated and make a difference in life, and she did. She became well educated and went on to live a happy and purpose filled life. The odds were completely against both of them and it was hard, really hard. But they believed their dreams and pursued until the dreams became reality.

There are so many, many excellent examples of people who had a dream and went on to do great things that they are legend, just two amazing examples are Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi. No need to discuss what they accomplished, you already know.

So the next time you hear someone call you a dreamer, dismiss it. After all, you’re too busy dreaming and imagining your future and what you will achieve.

 

When You Wish Upon A Star
*
When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you
*
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
Like dreamers do
*
Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing
*
Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and pulls you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dream comes true*
*
Dream on fair readers, dream on, let no one stop your dreams from becoming reality.
~ Penny
*Song Lyrics by Leigh Harline and Ned Washington
