Dreaming while asleep, is sometimes very confusing—one minute you are safely relaxing in your home, the next you are at a different location, accepting whatever the situation offers or demands. No matter how illogical the pattern of events, the dream continues; there are no rules or time frames, you just follow it through until you wake up.
According to the dictionary the following definitions define the word dream:
a sequence of images that appear involuntarily to the mind of somebody who is sleeping, often a mixture of real and imaginary characters, places, and events
the things that someone hopes, longs, or is ambitious for, usually something difficult to attain or far removed from present circumstance –Webster
Dreams of the heart are hopes, desires and ambitions; they are sometimes difficult to attain or far removed from present circumstance. A conscious effort is put forth to fulfill dreams, but when results do not occur quickly, we tend to abandon the dream.
I don’t believe that anyone has ever started a dream at its destination; there are stages and processes that need to be completed in order to attain a dream. Therefore, it is important to accept the challenges, disappointments and detours as part of the process that will lead to the destination where the dream is fulfilled. Those places, characters, and events that we encounter may appear unrelated, pointless, or they might even hinder the process. Rest assured, every experience is a step closer to fulfilling the dream; keep track of what you learn as you make the journey. For, your story will inspire others to set their wheels in motion, as well as keep your mind open to conquer bigger goals.
As we follow our dream, we will be led to several destinations; each destination offers tools and experiences that we’ll need. It may become difficult to stay focused and committed, as we will end up in places—maybe even in careers that appear to have nothing to do with our goal. Trust and believe that you are headed toward your dream, no matter how many detours you encounter. Once you achieve your goal, you will celebrate everything endured during the process, and within a very short time, you will set out to fulfill your next dream.
Everything that we experience in life is part of a building process, which empowers us to conquer dreams, to accomplish goals, and to build meaningful lives. Therefore, be patient and stay excited; anticipate victory, no matter what you are dreaming for.
