Dreaming.Hoping.Risking

Everyone dreams. Everyone has something that makes them tick or keeps them alive. It’s the same as hoping, almost. Most of us dream up a future or a destination in which we will be happy and have everything. It’s almost what keeps us alive. But how many of us are willing to actually take the leap, to risk failure.

Because, what if it doesn’t work? What if we risk everything and it wasn’t what we wanted or how we imagined it? What if we give up everything and end up with…nothing. I’m not gonna lie to you, it is a possibility.

What if we give all our love to someone, we risk our heart, and they don’t feel the same way? What if we dream of the house, the kids, the dream wedding, and no one ever asks us? What if we dump the loser who doesn’t love us and there is no one else out there? What if we write the book and no one wants to read it? What if we dream of being in a movie and no one ever casts us? What if we decide to go studying and we do not pass our exams? What if we go out there and try to make friends and no one is interested? These are all valid questions with scary answers. Dreaming is risky business.

So most of us just keep on dreaming. Because if we dream of a tomorrow, getting up today to go to our 9-5 job doesn’t seem too bad. If we dream of the marriage and the children, then having to sit home alone one more night seems bearable. We create a world in which we will be happy. We live in a future that might bring some kind of fulfillment to the grey of the lives that surround us.

And now your expecting an answer. Either me telling you to take the leap, go for gold, risk everything. Or to enjoy the now, love every day, enjoy the small things, live in the moment you are in. Both valid answers.

So I’m telling you that I don’t know. I don’t know the answer. I don’t know if it’s all worth it.

Ask me in a year.

    All I can say is to tell our Dad in heaven about your dreams and to trust in Him for the outcome of it all. It will be more than you ever expected.

    I trust Him with my dreams and He is busy giving me much more than I ever expected. Be warned thou because He will teach you about patience too.
