about this painting:
There can be nothing better than to take a moment and just relax. Close your eyes and let your mind wander. Think back to when we were 5-10 years younger and recall that very happy person you envisioned your future self to be. Do you remember who you wanted to be and what you wanted to own in these childhood fantasies? Maybe at this point in your life they have already all come true. Or perhaps they haven't yet been realized and are nothing more than a solemn memory. Maybe this gives reason as to why thinking of those dreams might at times cause you to feel upset and let out a heavy sigh.
That being said, you should imagine yourself to be one who has achieved great and many successes in your life. You are very lucky if you're not afraid to dream as our imagination is the best gift we have ever been given. Some people have already shaded their brightest and most desired dreams under a cloud of doubt, hazing their chance for happiness with disbelief and insecurities. On the other hand, can you recollect the feeling you had when something long desiderated finally became a reality? That feeling of being on top of the world? The happiness and enthusiasm, the positivity and energy?
Why do people stop dreaming?
If we all clearly remember that great feeling of satisfaction after our wish finally comes true, why then do we stop dreaming? The main reason it happens is because we get scared that our dreams will never come true or we have had a shattered dream before. That’s when our natural defense mechanism kicks in; we don’t want to be hurt. We bury our dreams in order not to awaken sadness, negative emotions and pain. We all have failed at some point in our life, whether it was an exam or a shattered dream; however, we all have succeeded as well. Then why do we let our fears ruining our life? When we ask a person about their dreams, somewhere behind that curtain of uncertainty and doubt we can still see a sparkle in his eyes and a smile on his lips. That person becomes happier for a moment, and it’s unnecessary to mention that his mood improves.
Keep on dreaming
How often do we need to dream? Some studies say, we should dream not less than twice a day. Why do we need to dream every day? If you need energy to, let’s say, finish a project - think of your plans for the future. If you’re exhausted after a long working day- think about your dreams. If you have some questions or doubts about your future- don’t give up on dreaming, and they all will be answered and all of your problems will be solved! Here are some tips that will help you not to give up on your dream and pursue it:
- First of all, you need to write you dream on a piece of paper, or buy a special beautiful notebook. The thing is, as soon as it’s written down, it turns into a goal. You can also write what it will add to your life when it comes true, how it will make you feel. The more detailed your description of it, the closer you’ll get to it;
- Now, when you have a goal, make a detailed plan of how you think you can make it happen- what steps you will need to take. Make sure to stick to the plan and cross out its points when you complete them;
- Do not underestimate the power of inspirational art! Surround yourself with motivational pictures! You can even make a collage of pictures cut out of magazines and newspapers with thing you want to buy or places you want to go! It really does work wonders!
