Kimberism: “A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams.” John Barrymore I love to dream. I’m not merely speaking of dreaming with my heart, but dreaming at night. It’s amazing to me that I can be passively sleeping and receive inspiration through a dream.
Last night I had a dream that caused me to awake with excitement. It reminded me that no matter how difficult times may be we must strive to stay connected to our joy. In the dream I saw a teleprompter broadcasting the phrase, “Turn your black and white dreams in for Technicolor.”
When times are difficult it is easy to be tempted to shut down, or throw out ones dreams. However, in my dream I was being encouraged to turn up the brightness, not dumb down my dreams.
In the 1998 film Pleasantville, life was in black and white until people’s hearts began to be awakened. Suddenly the whole town started coming to life, but not without ample resistance. There will always be circumstances to challenge our dreams. However, during times of difficulty its not time to do away with dreaming, its time to unleash our greatest creativity!
What are you doing to stoke the embers of your dreams? How are you keeping the fire of your passion alive?
