Dreaming and being a dreamer

A few weeks ago I was told I was a dreamer and that that was a bad thing.  Why is it a bad thing.  The comment came out because I always say that I want to win the lottery so I can fix my problems and then do fun stuff in the future.  I first thought was who doesn’t say they want to win the lottery, and then why is dreaming a bad thing?  A lot of people dream, because without dreamers this country; hell the world stage wouldn’t have succeeded and we wouldn’t be the people we are today.

Dreams help people make a better life for themselves and people who don’t dream of better things will never make their lot in life a better one.  Dreamers are inventors, innovators, people who make things happen in this world! So why can’t I be one or you or the person sitting next to you be the dreamer of the next big thing, but it doesn’t have to be a thing for the masses it could be dreaming of buying their first car or house, or that special toy they want or meeting the love of their lives or their first kiss.

I think people who think dreaming is stupid need to sit back and take stock in their lives and they will see that they are dreamers too.  Yea dreaming about winning the lottery could be a BIG pie in the sky dream, but it could also happen.  I dream about a lot of things, sure some of them are never going to happen before I die, but without dreams you never grow you never have something to look forward to in your life.  Dreams bring around change for the good and the bad, but either way they make you change.  Dreams will always be a good thing in my life and I hope they are a good thing in yours.

Sit back and think about this and then of the things that you have done in your life and you will realize that before they happened you dreamed just a little that they would happen and you made them happen because you had a dream.

Dream big, dream small, but just keep dreaming, because someday those dreams may just come true.

In closing I leave you with the words of Mr. Martin Luther King Jr. :

“I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream.”
