Let us dream.
To think that we are just creatures made of flesh and bone is to underrate ourselves and our potential--especially, what our minds are capable of achieving.
You may be a mother who is frought with worry over what her child is doing every second of the day. That’s okay--good mothers do that.
You may be an office worker, trying to struggle from paycheck to paycheck, doing your best to make rent.
You may be a professional athlete, staring at the field during tryouts, wondering if you have what it takes again this year.
The thing is, in the end, we have a common ability: The mother, dreaming of a child that will grow up to do something wonderful. The office worker, wanting that better life where they don’t have to worry about how much of that next paycheck will help cover bills. The pro athlete making that last-second, winning goal and helping their team win the championship.
The common ability? To dream of more, of something better.
We are allowed to dream. We are allowed to think big. We are allowed to wish for more than what we have now.
So, when anyone tells you that you can’t afford to have dreams, or that you’re not allowed to, or that you’re stuck where you are and can’t improve your situation...to hell with them. To hell with their limits. To hell with them defining *you* by *their* shortcomings.
Dream that dream, and reach for that goal. Don’t let anyone stop you, because they *can’t* stop you.
...and most of all, don’t let *you* stop you.
