I am speaking of dreams. You can’t hide them or deny them. Your buried dreams come back to haunt you in the form of regret. But dreams can be a burden even if you recognize and embrace them daily by trying to accomplish them, once you’ve dreamed them up there is no putting them to bed , they are out there, reminding us of what we hope for and what we are striving for. We constantly hold a measuring stick up against them; am I there yet? Is this what I wanted, or was it something more? To be honest, do we ever really come to the point where we can say, “now I have done it”. We are forever thinking of new dreams, new aspirations, the next goal that we want to achieve. And thank goodness, really, otherwise life would be rather dull. The difference between the burden of dreams unrealized and dreams ignored is regret. The difference between the burden of dreams unrealized and dreams ignored is YOU. Maybe you can feel frustrated or dissatisfied with not actually getting your dreams to where you want them to be but knowing that you really tried, and I mean really tried, is the real difference .
