Still Dreaming, Aren’t You?


The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.


Eleanor Roosevelt

I have Dreams, I share about this a lot, so what. Some would say, hey you Stop Dreaming and Start Doing, Well guess what? I’m not going to stop dreaming. Ever! At least I hope not.

Do you Still Dream? There are so many things in my heart, my mind, and in my soul I dream of doing. Over the last few years, I’ve posed the questions to myself,do I dream too much? I am a woman of multiple dreams, and that makes me wonder about alot of things. Mainly , Why? I also ask are you just dreaming and and not going anywhere? To me, there’s nothing worse than regret, and feeling as if moments or opportunites have passed you by. I’ve done away with those thoughts andchoose to believe what’s meant to be will be. Moving on…

What are your dreams? I called my mother today before i started writing and asked, mom how old are you? She responds, 71 about to be 72. What a blessing! ( Check out this old article about my mom from 2 years ago) https://trustyourjourneybeauty.wordpress.com/2017/03/06/to-my-mother-who-is-alive-and-well/ And I proceed to ask her, Do you still have dreams? After going round for a few minutes about actual dreams like when u sleep, I say No, Like Dream Dream.” Are there still things in your life you want to accomplish?” I tiptoed to the questions, because believe it or not, a few years back before the stuff in the article posted above happened, I kinda think my mom stopped dreaming, but that’s just my opinion. (Sometimes, we’re scared to dream, or at least acknowledge dreams, because of fear. Fear of failure, fear of getting uncomfortable, or just plain and simply not wanting to move.) To my delight, she answered. ” Yes! I have many things I still want to accomplish.” I almost cried, I want her dreams to come true too, and I have dreams that involve her too. I asked her to write them down, and perhaps share with me at a later date.

I’ve come to a peace in my life. Acknowledge your dreams, write them down, keep working ( somebody’s gotta pay the bills) and take steps to pursue your dreams, one step at a time, one dream at a time. ( If you’re lucky, sometimes the dreams are wrapped in each other and multiple can happen at once. )

Sometimes , we get stuck, I know I have. I stumble across doubt, and fear, and stupid realizations of work, and paycheck to paycheck stuff like that. I pray, and God to fill me with contentment, and joy, which i have, but I still dream. I don’t really dream about things, I dream about actions, jobs, experiences, creating memories, and I dream for others too. There has been times where my dreams a crushed, or they happen and weren’t really all that to begin with, but we pursuit on. We live to fight another day and we keep dreaming and walking towards those visions. I believe God places dreams in our hearts to accomplish the steps that he wants us to take in our journey and some of those dreams simply give us delight, however God always sees the heart and what it is that we seek.

Delight yourself also in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Psalm 37:4 The Holy Bible NKJV

I bring that up because I speak of direction, avoidance of being complacent, and guidance from above. These are dreams, things we want to accomplish. Some dreams that I have I wonder about though, some come and go, and some will not leave. For example since I was a kid I’ve always wanted to be a DJ. Like as a kid, the kind that worked inside the radio and played my music. The folks that told me what song was next so that I could get my tape ready to record. As an adult, I still dream of being a DJ. Both on the radio, and the kind that sets up and plays music or people. I like how the DJ just creates all kinds of memories and good times. Plus I really love music.

I do have to check myself sometimes, when my heart goes astray and my desires become many and strong, I have to check myself and stay in that delight of the Lord in prayer and supplication.

I believe in me, and I believe in my dreams. I dream of many things, I dream od dancing, I dream of writing ( guess what I write) I dream of having published books, I dream of inspiring others, I dream of graduating college. I dream of having grandchildren ( not yet though) , and I dream of growing old with my husband. I dream of being in ministry, I dream of singing my heart out, I dream of educating others, and I even dreaming of acting. I dream of seeing the look on kids faces the first time we all get on a plane, and I dream of seeing their dreams come true, whatever they may be. I dream of friendships, of heartlfelt moments, I dream of starting companies, and employing others. I dream that my husband and I will have our dream place, one we can run , we want a cafe. We want to serve wine and cheese and some yummy delights. We dream of offering others a quaint place to relax, we dream of vacations, and breathtaking views. I dream of being a poet and sharing my stories. I dream of serving others, and entering heavens gates, I believe in my dreams, I believe I am living my dreams, Aren’t You?

Some dreams came straight to me, my husband, my children, never could i have fathomed. I guess that’s what the bible means when it says he is able to give us more than we could Some of my dreams have come to pass, I’ve learned that not all dreams are meant to last. Some dreams take to you to the next place, some dreams are forever and some just to meet the next face. Dreams are a gift, and we should not have be afraid, we should never stop dreaming, I’m still dreaming. Aren’t you?
