It's almost 3am and I can't sleep. My brain won't stop thinking about hopes and dreams. I feel like I've stopped dreaming a while ago. I used to do that a lot, making plans and writing New Year's resolutions lists. This year I made none. I've recently met a friend that I haven't seen for almost 3 years and he randomly told me that I've changed a lot...that I don't smile that often anymore. I can't help but wonder...when did I stop dreaming...and smiling?
I keep thinking about that saying "Dreams don't work unless you do.". Is it? What if dreams do work even when we don't, when our brains have problems visualising the BIG dream. How do we know is OUR dream the one that is working?
Sometimes, amazing opportunities come across when you least expect it...and everyone around gets more excited than you do...and you keep hearing these sentences: "You would be crazy not to accept this chance."or "How many times do you think opportunities like this arise in one's life?" but what if the dream in front of you was never yours? What do you do then? Do you take it or leave it?
While my brain is stuck on certain dreams and expectations, my heart keeps telling me: "Embrace the unknown!". Maybe we're supposed to find ourselves in places we've never thought of so we can discover our own dreams. In the end, you never know where hope hides.
I casually found it just across the wall of the Cafe I am working at to save up for what I still ask myself if it is the "BIG" dream.
