When we hear someone say that a dream can come true, most of the time we are skeptical. If they ask us if we are willing to get involved, we say yes, but inside us, we have many perplexities. We have more of a tendency to resign ourselves to the idea that dreams remain such, rather than trying, many times, with determination and patience.
The world around, then, for protection, for selfishness, for envy or for fear of what changes, does everything to hold us back and invites us to be satisfied, by leaving certain fantasies to films and novels !! So that dream will remain there, like a precious object to look at from time to time and then put it in a drawer, where it will lie forever with the label “impossible”.
Yet dreams can be realized, life can be freed from the constraints and limits that bind it. Maybe it won’t be easy, maybe it won’t happen in a few days, but it can happen.
Cultural influences, family ties, personal fears and insecurities, resignations that follow the years hold us back in play and, however much the desire to make the dream come alive, the fear of facing change and the risk that its satisfaction would entail, holds us back as much as our social bonds.
Unfortunately, we are the first to not really believe in the possibility of making our dreams come true, and this makes us less tenacious, poorly motivated, limitedly courageous in the face of what we could and really would to be.
Strength and courage come when we give ourselves permission to realize what we really are and learn to protect our life from what prevents us from doing it.
Not from the absence of frailty or from fear: this is impossible because we are human. The limits must not become overwhelming or penalizing, but they can be the starting point for continuing to live better and creatively, keeping alive and powerful desires and dreams, hopes, and projects, which are what makes us happy!
When we truly love something, when that passion animates us entirely, then nothing is impossible. We will be able to find ways, times, adventure companions with which to fulfill our vocation, and nothing will stop us. And we will be able to transform our limits creatively so that they are not an impediment to having what we really want. Because it is our life that is at stake.
Let us dare and dreams come true.
