Wouldn’t it be great if you could get paid for doing what you love? If you didn’t have to worry at all about money, because your dream took care of all that?
You’re not relying on a job.
Not on your parents.
Not on even charity (taking God out of the equation).
You’re relying just on your dream.
We can see the ways in which this would happen…we can imagine it…maybe even taste it. But then it hits us: well, that’s just a dream…or is it?
You know what I think?
What do you think?
I don’t want to dream anymore.
Huh? Why? Dreaming is great! Dreaming keeps you going! If you don’t dream, life will be boring. Life will cease to be exciting. To not dream is to give up!
No, you’re wrong.
“the pleasure of a dream is that it’s a fantasy. If it becomes real, it was never a dream”-Fullmetal Alchemist
Yeah. “Oh.” That quote from Fullmetal Alchemist has always been meaningful to me. It hit me hard when I heard it, the same way it hit the protagonist of FMA. I don’t want to dream if I want my dream to become real. Because then it won’t be a fantasy. It won’t be a dream then. It will be REAL.
And I WANT it to be real.
Stop dreaming. You’re done with that. Kids dream. Are you still a kid? No?
Then stop. We aren’t dreamers anymore.
