How are you awesome people of Read.cash?

Today, I'm going to talk about dreams. And this is my entry to Jonica Bradley's prompt #16 Dreams.

I'm not going to talk about what I dream about at night since I hardly remember my dreams. But there is a habit that I have with nightmares. When I was a child, I used to remember my dreams more frequently. And I used to believe that for the bad dreams to didn't come true, we had to tell them to someone upon waking up. And even now, the few times I have nightmares, when I wake up, the first thing I do is to tell about them, just in case.

But today, I'm going to talk about the dreams we have for our life. Many of you already know that I have a teenage son, and one of the things I enjoy lately is hearing him talk about his dreams, about what he wants to do, and that often leads me to look back and remember what I was like and the dreams I had at his age. And how important it is to learn from a very young age that to achieve our dreams, we have to work for them.

I had so many dreams. And I still have so many. Some of my dreams came true. Others were replaced, some of them I simply forgot about, and I'm still chasing many others.

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.

-Walt Disney

If you ask me if I'm a dreamer? I'll tell you yes and no. The word dreamer is used to describe a person who lives just dreaming. People who live on fantasies and never realize their dreams because they do nothing to achieve them. And so far, they only dream. Some people dream of things that are so hard or impossible to reach. Some others don't try to reach them. Because deep down they fear that they could be a failure in the end. Or they fear to end up having to take on new challenges.

I'm not that type of dreamer. I'm a down-to-earth person, but that doesn't mean that I don't have dreams.

I think we should never stop dreaming. But we can't stop doing something to achieve those dreams either. For me, a person without dreams is like a very defined image but without color. And those who only dream are an image full of color but completely blurred. If you don't do something to achieve your dreams, they remain been just dreams. So as in everything in life, we need a balance.

If you have a dream, pursue it to make it come true, you may or may not succeed. But in the process, you will learn. And other dreams will likely arise.

Dream and act. Want a better life? Work for it. Want to travel to the destination of your dreams? Start planning what you need to do and go for it. Want to publish a book? Write it. Want to have a family? Choose the person you want to share your life with. And never stop dreaming.

If you can dream it, you can do it.

Or are you a bit of both?

I think we all have dreams, aspirations, and goals. That's just a part of human nature. The difference is between those who do things to realize them and those who only dream. Having vision, and courage, and of course strong strategy are all keys to making dreams into realities. But when it comes to goals, setting realistic ones are key.

In the end not all dreams CAN become realities. But so long as we fail to achieve them fully having tried not to, I think that makes the entire process still worthwhile and fulfilling.

Of course, not all dreams will come true, but by striving to achieve them we end up reaching other goals. And yes, the important thing isn't only to dream but do something to achieve the dream.

I totally agree with you, you not only have to dream and pursue your dreams, you also have to prepare for it, you must follow your dream in a coherent way, I recommend the author Pablo Coello, to go forming the path to your dreams.

Dream can serve as a guide in our lives, it shows us what we want to be or to do to future. You're right that it gives color to our lives and we should make a an action if we want this dream of us happen. There are lots of challenges along the way of achieving it but if you really want that dream you will pursue it whatever it takes. But ofcourse if that dream is impossible to achieve, you may change it a little in order for it to be possible.

We tend to dream less as we get older and we also tend to remember nightmares more than good dreams.

Desde niña he tenido tantos sueños y he trabajado mucho para lograrlos, uno mas que otro se me han cumplido, a los que les he puesto más empeño son los que se han podido lograr, entre sudor, lagrima, pero también alegrías. Agradecida por ellos.

Con esto quiero decir que no es solo soñar y quedarnos acostados para solo seguir soñando, tenemos que ir por ellos.

Tengo muchos en mi lista, pronto los iré cumpliendo uno a uno con el favor de Dios.

Espero que también cumpla los suyos.

I agree. We have the freedom to dream. But in order to achieve that dream, we need to exert effort and actions. Dreams will remain dreams if won't do something about it. Thus, dreams should be accompanied by actions to make it come true.

I like both. I love to daydream and I like to dream in my nights. When I have nice dreams and I wake up I usually touch my diary and write down everything that happened. In the morning I read it and remember everything. And I daydream all the time. I like to think about what I will do tomorrow, what I will be able to do tomorrow, where I will be tomorrow. I love that, daydreaming.
