Dreams and realities

There is a very fine line between a persons dream and reality..

Many may disagree by saying the line is actually very thick, but in my mind the line is thinner than anyone could imagine.. Unless you are a nut job who thinks that he/she is superman and jumps out of the window to prove it.. You will actually come to see that my point is very much true!

Through out time and through history we find quotes from some of the most famous people, books and movies telling us to “follow our dreams” .. if the line was so thick no one would use that phrase at all.. Although not all dreams can come true (as some of them are pretty outrages as becoming superman) others aren’t as far away as you think..

About 7 years ago, I started thinking and imagining my future, although I got the timelines a bit wrong, I could see myself with a specific degree – in a more or less specific career – and living in a specific place .. Believe me when i tell you that the possibility of that dream coming true was probably 0.0000001% and i always used to tell myself to stop dreaming and get realistic, but for some reason I could not let go of that scenario, that thought, that dream..

7 years down the line, I am more than happy to say that this 0.0000001% dream is not only a possibility but it has actually come true..

I am not saying that this dream came true because I did everything in my power to do it.. Well I did make sure part of it would happen.. But the other half was – hmmmm – fate? Luck? – I don’t really know what to call it.. But point is that it happened !!

I am now living my dream, something I never thought I would do or would happen, but I guess life had a different plan for me all together..

So I guess what I’m trying to say here is that dreams are very much subjective, it depends on what, who, how, where, when, fate, luck, and an overall hidden plan.. But, that does not mean you should give up on it..

Follow your dreams, I don’t want to make it sound like a cliché and i don’t want to sound like those people who talk about making your dreams come true as easy as baking cake (although believe me baking cakes isn’t as easy as one might imagine), but what I am saying is….. Have the faith and the power to think that one day your dream might actually come true, and if it doesn’t, at least you had the gut to dream it!

As always, enjoy and keep dreaming !

    I agree! dreams do come true, if we believe in them… and if they don’t, thats because life has a different, a better plan for us =) When I look back, my life @ this point is not how I imagined it would be. To be honest, its much better than I thought.. Am actually glad it hadn’t worked out the way I thought it would =$

    this is exactly what im doing now.. living my dream el7amdella..
    one important thing u mentioned it but ill say it in different way.. it that everyone should have a clear career path or let say a clear idea of what he/she wants to be.. at that point your dream will be under process..

    i really feel sad when i see someone come to ask what should i study or where should i work.. i never tell them this is better than this one but i always tell them what do u want to be what do u like to be.. what is your vision.. its your own decision.. you should not follow but your dream..

      Sometimes the dream is just way tooooo dramatic or far from reality for someone to follow .. but the thing is, u can channel your life in some ways to get you closer to what you want ..

      The 1st part of my dream was to have an MBA and work in events or communications .. These things I could control and I did them ..

      The 2nd part of my dream was to liv alone, not because I hate living with my family, but because I wanted to know the feeling of independence, this I never thought was possible.. Fate however had other plans for me.. Maybe I unconsciously channeled my career and took decisions that indirectly pointed to this part of the dream.. But believe me when I tell you I’m shocked at how things turned out and I still can’t believe it !!

      Although I have to say this.. I have a very very supportive family.. If they weren’t do supportive this wouldn’t have been possible at all..

    Did you honestly dream of living in Abu Dhabi? In your dream, where did you park your car?

    Just kidding. I’m very happy to see that you like your new job, and that it is turning out to be what you had dreamed it to be.
