Do you remember having amazing dreams as a child? What were your goals growing up? How many of those grand visions have materialized? And how many of them have withered along with time? 

 

 As a child, we must all remember how the word “ aspirations” and “ dreams” hold so much meaning. We’re constantly asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” and various answers would roll out of our tongues doubtlessly: a pilot, a doctor, a giant tree! Our dreams ranged from becoming someone of importance, of having power, or other fancy things. Even as we turned into teenagers, we would still have goals, no matter big or small, far in the future.

But as we grow, adults tend to see things in a more realistic and practical approach.

 

 

 

The series of events in our life continue to shape us, rather than the other way around. No longer fueled by our deepest desires, we go through life by making the best out of a situation. This is not wrong and very normal of course. In fact, we can still very much be contented with what life has to offer and lead a fulfilling one as we continue to evolve.

 

 

 While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with being satisfied with where you are at in life, there is something about staying content that you must pause and ask yourself, “ Is there more?”. Not to be mistaken with greediness, it is about exploring your long abandoned dreams. They are the things you put into a forgotten box, just because you thought the dreams are too big, too unrealistic, too late or you’re too old for it.

Well, what if we tell you that NO DREAM IS TOO BIG, and that it’s NEVER TOO LATE?

 Dreams are not reserved only for kids because it is not an age thing. And we’re not only saying this; there are people who have proven again and again that as long as there’s a will, there’s a way. There’s Colonel Sanders making his first KFC batch at 40, the 47-year-old Susan Boyle wowing the crowd at Britain’s Got Talent, Julia Child and her first cookbook at age 49, or Charles Darwin getting recognition by the age of 50.

 

Before you think that dreaming will only get you nowhere, consider it as your compass to the next target. We’re not asking you to make a drastic career switch or pursuing the impossible. But if there’s an inner voice or lingering thought in the back of your mind, some past dreams that you want to revisit, do not let that flicker dies. Keep the flame alive, let it motivate and lead you to your purpose in life- no matter how trivial or significant it may seem.

 

 As a child, we must all remember how the word “ aspirations” and “ dreams” hold so much meaning. We’re constantly asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” and various answers would roll out of our tongues doubtlessly: a pilot, a doctor, a giant tree! Our dreams ranged from becoming someone of importance, of having power, or other fancy things. Even as we turned into teenagers, we would still have goals, no matter big or small, far in the future.

As long as that desire is still burning, we believe that it’s enough of a calling for you to answer.

 

Because there are always 2 options with your dreams, either to let them stay beautiful visions in your mind or let them materialized into some of life’s best memories. Afterall, it costs nothing to dream but will be the most valuable things when act upon.

 

So if you dream of going paragliding, go for it. Or maybe go back to school, pick up a skill, why not? Dare yourselves to dream, dare yourselves to do it. Do it for the little kid that was you and do it for the present you. Trust us, your future self will thank you too.
