“I HAVE A DREAM” Part 2
In yesterday’s post, I made an opening statement that bears repeating before we continue. If you were to ask me to summarize my philosophy in one word, it might very well be this one: DREAM! If I could use two words, it would probably be: DREAM BIG!
Wouldn’t it be nice if life was easy, or at least predictable? I think we could all agree on this one point: Life is neither! So because of the difficulties and unpredictability of life, often one’s dreams become a casualty of the reality of living. And yes, in this “real” world we live. But, must it be at the expense of our dreams? I hope not!
Some of you reading this post may have forgotten that long ago dream that once piqued your excitement. While others will maybe scoff at the very thought of dreaming, clinging to reality as you know it for fear of never achieving that dream. Whichever you happen to be, I hope you’ll reconsider.
I tend to be that person who believes dreaming is a part of reality. And it’s so important that I purposely schedule time for what some may deem to be meer fantasies! But for me, dreaming maintains a necessary challenge in my life!
Ah, but dreaming in and of itself can be a bit of a waste. One must realize the dream is only the beginning. A dream will never come to fruition without specific structure that creates an opportunity for that dream to become a reality. That specific structure seems to be where so many falter.
But, we’ll save that for a future post. Right now, why not allow yourself the freedom to dream again. Just for a moment, think about something you might want to achieve, or a place you may want to visit, or even a career you could begin to pursue.
While you’re dreaming about that, I thought I would share a few shots of a quaint little French Crepe Cafe I came upon a few weeks ago.
It looked very inviting.
It would appear there is immediate seating.
The flowers add a simple touch of elegance.
It’s a picture-perfect day for some crepes!
Remember, dreaming is not this whimsical disconnect from reality. But, it is the beginning of a process which challenges you to believe you can do whatever you choose to do, or be whatever you choose to be. It can be the beginning of a new career, of becoming a more dedicated photographer, or even a better person. Or maybe like me, you’re just extremely excited to see where this photography dream might take you!
So, why this series of photographs?
No particular reason. Let’s just say, I thought a taste of Paris might be the perfect dream for someone today.
Thanks for stopping by. I’ll see you tomorrow. Don’t be afraid to dream!
