Everything You Imagine IS Possible

Whatever day to day diversions happen in your life, the important thing is to keep your dream alive.  We all have many things that we want to accomplish in our lifetime, but sometimes we lose sight of those dreams.  Through our daily responsibilities, they slowly get pushed to the side and sometimes they eventually get lost.

All you have to do is widen your imagination.  You have to go beyond what you believe your limits are, you have to come to the realization that you do not have any limits, only the ones that you put on yourself.  Some have goals that they monitor closely to help them obtain their dream.  Some don’t have a dream, either way there is no right nor wrong.

If you are a visual person, post a sticky where you spend most of your time, detailing your dream.  If you are more of a mental person, associate something with your dream as a constant reminder.  No dream is too little or too big.  You should always encourage others to fulfill their dream.

Making a dream become a reality is the sweetest thing that you can do for your soul.  It is something that you accomplish, it is something to take pride in and it helps push you past whatever limits you put on yourself.  Surprise yourself and see how big you can dream.

My dream is to build two buildings, one in Chicago and one in New York.  These two buildings will be for children who come from troubled homes.  It will be a place filled with hope and love.  It will be a place where they have no worries of abuse or fear.  There will be a floor for professional psychologist on hand 24 hours a day with an open door policy where no appointment is ever needed.  All staff will fill out a waiver signing off all of their rights regarding privacy.  That means that access to their computers and personal information will be available 24/7, when you work with children you give up the right to privacy.  There will also be plenty of staff who is excited for the children to succeed.  Professionals from every profession will give lectures about their field of expertise.  There will be an observatory on the top level for their minds to grow.

There will be plenty of work and play for the children, from their rooms to the garden.  The small chores they do will help them learn responsibility.  There will be camp fires, where they can bond with other children and share stories and make friends and learn that they can trust again and not feel so all alone with dealing with the situation that brought them there.  There will be a border along the middle of the walls with handprints of the children with their first name and the word hope inscribed underneath.   This is let the know that there are other children facing the same issue, thus not feeling so alone.  Each floor will house the children, not by age, but by the circumstance that brought them there.  This will encourage more bonding and the ability to trust and talk about the issues.  A child may not talk to an adult about their situation but they will talk to another child.

Now, I am no electrician but I do know that for every child who is afraid of the dark a nightlight will be in place.  I know a child who does not trust, will eventually open up through love.  I know a child who lashes out has a troubled soul and should be given a safe environment to do so.  I strongly feel that if more emphasize was on our youth, our prisons would not be so full.  If a child has issues, you can bet that as they grow up they will have bigger issues if they aren’t addressed while they are young.

The buildings will allow the children plenty of freedom.  They will have the freedom to go out at night and star gaze so they can imagine what their world will be like when they get older.  They will be able to speak freely what they think, both bad and good, and come to realization that there are good people in the world.

The children that will be housed will come from every background, every nationality and every religion.  The goal is to replace whatever negative impact life has forced upon them and replace it with love, hugs, understanding and compassion.  No violence will be tolerated and no child will be kicked out, instead, plenty of counseling to find the root of the problem and a firm handshake from both parties so it can be dealt with appropriately.

It is funny; I had this dream every night as a child.  At first I had a nice playground and a lot of pretty flowers and trees.  As my dream continued I thought, if I take away the trees and flowers, I could build another floor.  Such is a child’s dream.

Oh you may wonder, why only two buildings?  Because, it is not the number of buildings which I build that matter, it is the concept that it is based on that spreads like wildfire, producing more homes.

As my days go one, I add more and more details to my dream.  It is not a reality yet, but it will be, someday.

Do you have a dream?  Has your dream already been fulfilled?  What do you do to keep your dream alive?

Yes Salma, the sad reality is that often times we get so busy that our dreams get pushed aside. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

I truly believe this is true as well because you focus FAR MORE on your dream, thus you're PRO ACTIVE with it and do things that help you achieve said goal!!
