Dreams - Poem by Ann Pattinson

Dreams start as a seed and are watered by the springs of imagination. They get their strength to push through the ground by your determination. They steel themselves against the winds of doubting and second guessing as you feel the raw aching and acceptance of your first loss. They soak in the beams of sunshine radiating from your smile as you leap over that first obstacle. Dreams can only grow if you believe, and if you let your heart and soul feel the wonderful rhythm of life.

    Dreams are a succession of visual images that we experience during our sleep.Dreams can raise questions about reality.
    Dreams are more real than reality itself, they're closer to the self.

    You see, most of what we dream about for our life is not really impossible; it's just that circumstances get in the way of us doing what it takes to live our ideal life. How about it though? What would your ideal life be like? Is it so far fetched that you cannot achieve it?

    It makes no sense trying to work on something you don't have the talent, strength or mindset to achieve. Focus on your given talents, work on the things you love. Your simple hobby can turn into a gold mind for you if you work at it.
