Youthful dreams are usually bolder
in nature because we have not silenced them and resisted them,
everything is still possible to our youthful minds. Time seems to be
on our side, and things tend to go our way, but as we get older “reality
checks” begin to shape us and our dreams. We (most of us) begin to
settle and sacrifice our dreams for far less than we imagined in our
In dreams he often comes to me,
The lad I used to be,
I wonder if he hopes to see,
The man he might have been?
Consider for a moment, if you as a
child of seven or eight could travel through time, and see yourself as
you are today would you find yourself a disappointment? A failure?
Sadly, most of us would have to answer yes. What happened to us along
the way? The answer is that we gave up on our more noble dreams and
let ourselves down, and settled to be less than we were meant to be.
As we have just discussed the
intensity and passions of our dreams diminish with each and every
passing day that we feel and do not act. The time to act is now! The
longer we procrastinate the less likely we will be to act upon our
dreams. To quote Screwtape:
”The more often one feels without
acting, the less likely he will be ever to act, and in the long run,
the less he will be able to feel.”
Dear reader, if it is noble, if it
is your calling and your hearts desire, whether it is for romance or
personal success answer your heart before the dreams fade away,
weakening with every passing moment.
Yes there will be challenges and
struggles. A relevant Spanish maxim which goes like this “No hay
peor lucha que la que no se hace!” which in English loosely
translated means-the greatest struggle is that which is never
undertaken! Will you regret what might have been all of your life?
Most people at the end of their lives have regrets, they do not
typically say “I wish that I had worked more overtime” or “I
wish that I had kept up on football more” Usually they regret the
lack of close and lasting relationships with friends and family. The
second most common regret is choice of profession. Now is the time to
act and turn those dreams into reality instead of missed
opportunities. I say it again, the time to act is now, for when will
you be stronger?
