Dreams and reality

Sometimes it seems that what is practical and sensible does not connect with your most treasured dreams. Yet when you look deeply enough, the connection is most certainly there.

For if you could not dream, what would be the point of tending to the practical things? And if you did not tend to those practical concerns, how could you ever hope to attain your dreams?

Stop fretting about how the things you must do are interfering with the things you want to do. Instead, discover and appreciate and strengthen the connection between the two.

Make your dreams a part of your reality. And make your reality a part of your dreams. There is no reason why your dreams must oppose your reality. Improve your dreams and your reality by bringing them together.

Put the power of passion into the day-to-day, sensible and practical things, and put the power of reality into your dreams. You’ll find it to be a winning combination indeed.
