I recently heard the following line in a show:
“Adulthood is where dreams go to die!”
Wow. That statement really hit me hard and made me think.
I mean, we all have had our days that adulting is hard, right?
Any of these sound or look familiar??? Hello…Mondays right?!
But to go as far as to say that adulthood is where dreams go to die?!
What did this really mean? Is it true? Are we all doomed?!
Let’s dive deeper…
As children, we are encouraged to use our imaginations, read, play and dream.
As adults we are encouraged to go to work, make money and pay bills.
I have to say, I am finding it hard to disagree with the statement at this point.
Well, I will tell you with certainty that for those that truly believe that adulthood is where dreams go to die, it is. Those are the ones that will succumb to being stuck going to a job they don’t love (and maybe even hate) to pay the bills and make a living. But is that really a ‘living’ at all…or simply an existence?
Luckily, there is hope. You see, it is all about perception and there is another way to look at this. Adulthood doesn’t have to be where our dreams go to die. Where is there a rule that says as we get older we have to stop using our imaginations? Stop reading? Stop playing? Stop dreaming?
Well, there isn’t one. We place that perceived barrier on ourselves.
So let’s all do ourselves a favor and get out of our own way! It is time to connect to your inner child. Imagine, read, play, dream…believe!
Don’t let adulthood be where your dreams go to die…let it be where they come alive! <3
The power is all yours.
