160 Days ’til 40: Deams (Visions) to Reality

14 Sep

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. ~ Walt Disney

A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams. ~ John Barrymore

Dream and give yourself permission to envision a You that you choose to be. ~ Joy Page

I LOVE this billboard series…..  I cannot remember what it was advertising (maybe someone out there can) but I LOVED the concept!  Isn’t that what we hope life is all about?  Bringing our dreams to life…..  bringing our dreams to life can mean many things – and not necessarily that we will all be millionaires with full-time maids and driving BMWs.  (No, that would not even be my dream if I was rich!)

Dreams can be about many things – fulfillment in life and love – job satisfaction, a loving family.  These dreams are so important to have.  I believe that dreams, at any and all ages and stages of life, are what continue to keep us going.  I think if we are not dreaming we are not living…. we need to allow ourselves to dream, and even challenge ourselves to continue to dream.

Today, 160 days ’til 40, I will continue to challenge myself to dream – my dreams keep me growing.

    Not sure of this line, but “We bring good things to life” was the General Electric slogan. Like the post.

    “…if we are not dreaming we are not living.”–a fabulous perspective, 400! Thank you!

    Very nice with a positive message.

    I find myself still in the depths of depression, however am pulling my way out. I’ve been unhappy for a long time (longer than I realise/had first thought) and when you are in this state, it is obviously very difficult to have dreams as you’re so far down in the pit.

    But slowly but surely I am finding my way out. My first dream (goal) is to lose weight and get fit again like I used to be.

    Thanks for the post, as always.

      Yes, you are so right, it is hard to have dreams when you are depressed…. of course, this is when you need the dreams the most!

    I think all of us have dreams …. I don’t think there is anyone on earth that don’t dream about something … rich or poor – healthy or sick – young or old – man or woman – we have all our dreams. Most of us are able to maybe some of them come true – for others it will be nearly impossible. – and that is the sad one – those that dreams about a roof over their head and fresh water …

      Yes, you really put it into perspective – the dreams of some are taken for granted by so many others….

    I really like the billboards.

    I’m not quite sure about the Walt Disney quote. Does this mean that dream I had about being a guest worker in China, travelling to a job by train and not knowing which station to get off at, is actually going to happen to me?

    i like this one, mainly because it always seems as if though people are told they obligated to do things above making their self happy….
