If your dreams could become reality, would you let them?

Everyone has a ‘bucket list’ of some sort. A list of things that they want to do before they die. A list of things they want to accomplish in their lifetime. They dream of accomplishing these things on the list. The list that constantly builds. As you get older, these things on the list seem almost impossible to accomplish because there is too much going on in your life, there is no time for these things anymore.

In this society, it seems that people tend to become so career focused that they forget about these things that they wish they could do if they had the time. Now I’m not saying that you should drop everything that you’re doing, because from personal experience I know that having a career is most certainly important in my family. However, I never forget about my ‘bucket list’. This list is constantly in my head and it’s always growing. I use it as a way for me to push myself so that one day these dreams could become my reality. Because I know that I don’t want to wake up one day after my life has suddenly passed by and regret not being able to do anything on my list because I was so focused on ‘living’.

As cliche as it may sound, use your dreams and aspirations as a tool to drive you to get to where you want to be in life. You may not get there right away and you might even get side tracked. Life will take its toll, but you should never about that list of things that drove you to get to where you are now.

So to all those dreamers out there; take some time off of your busy schedules to write a list of your own. If you already have one, continue to add to it, but don’t forget to cross some things off while your at it. Because there’s absolutely nothing wrong with being a dreamer, but turning those dreams into a reality, now that’s the ultimate task in anyone’s life.

Now if you don’t mind, I’d like to share part of my list with you all:
