Imagine – or maybe you don’t need to – finding that one special person. The contours of their soul perfectly line up with your own. Even if you don’t yet own a shared residence, every time you’re with them, you feel well and truly home. After all, isn’t home where the heart is?
Later on, the joy of finding your soulmate is almost matched by finding a physical manifestation for your desire to spend the rest of your lives together: a home, where not only your heart but every other part of you will reside. You and your spouse – together, forever.
They say you should never meet your heroes, but what about having your dreams come true? A dream is perfectly formed, flawless, as it exists solely in our minds. Nothing that is entirely a figment of our imagination can be encumbered by the harsh realities of life in the real world.
What if your dream comes true, though? You may wish for it fervently, with every fiber of your being, but have you stopped to consider what might happen if it did? How would your heart’s desires translate as it makes the transition to the outside world? Be careful what you wish for…
Whatever your dream is, when it leaves the confines of your mind and enters reality, something has to give. Our world is not perfect, and nothing perfect can exist in it but perhaps an imperfect dream is better than no dream at all.
Perhaps so, but consider another danger in realizing your dreams. When they are ensconced in your mind, they’re invulnerable. Nothing can touch them or harm them. They are never in danger. When you allow your dream to enter the world, when it comes true, it suddenly becomes vulnerable, just like you. It can be hurt, just like you.
Your dream can now be damaged, it can be compromised, and it can even be destroyed. In living your dream, you are saying, “Yes, I want this badly enough to risk having it taken away from me.” So what do you do when your dream is in shambles? And how can you ever put it – and yourself – back together again?
