More to it than Dreaming

Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living.

~Anais Nin

We learn early to be dreamers.  From the time we are first asked "What do you want to be when you grow up?" we are learn to get out the giant sketchpad in our hearts and brainstorm.  What if?   It's playful, fun, imaginative.  It's creative, thinking of something different than what currently is.  It's a necessary step in the growth process.  But there's more to it than dreaming.

From dreaming, we must believe.  Not necessarily believe that our dream will come true.  Although we are told to do this all the time.  Unfortunately, life events happen.  Not all dreams do come to actualization.  Believing a dream will come true and then it not happening can set a person up for giving up on dreaming entirely.  No, the belief I'm talking about here is belief in the possibility.  For if a dream is possible (not plausible, mind you)... if a dream is possible then it is worth undertaking.

And from belief, we must focus.  Put all that imagination into action.  Begin taking steps.  Big steps or small steps.. any step is better than no step at all.  Focus and begin to create a path for yourself.  It's no surprise that words action and actuality are so similar.  Go do it!
