I Have A Dream
Do you believe in Angels? How about Demons? How about dreams at least?
Does any of these remind you of a song?
Which is the most recent song you have heard? I am sure some of them would be talking about Shakira, some would be talking about the latest hep songs from Bollywood and I am going to take you through a tide of time, maybe to the early 2000’s where a beautiful song came about dreams! YES! I am talking about ABBA – I have a dream!
And why are we talking about the song today, well, we all have a dream don’t we? 😉
I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail.
We all have a dream, we all have a life of fancy, we all want to do so many things in life, those things we are very passionate about, those things which make our heart jump with joy, those things for which we are willing to make any bloody sacrifice it takes. Yes! I have a dream too and it is a beautiful picture of a fairy tale, the various forms it takes and what all it can go on to mean..
I have a dream, a fantasy
To help me through reality
But why does this dream have to be such a fantasy? Don’t you think we are driving ourselves away from reality everytime we dream, but yet we do, yet we strive to make them happen. Yet we go through all those hurdles even if we see that the reality is a lot more challenging than it appears from the outset.
But then, here is a thought about the fairy tale
“Fairy tales are more than true, not because they tell us dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten!”
And also that is the beauty of fantasy right? It is not a place for us to escape from reality, but it is something which motivates us, which drives us ahead, which keeps pushing us at every slip and turn, which makes the reality even more real!
And my destination makes it worth the while
Pushing through the darkness still another mile.
And why do we do it? Is it the destination, is it the journey? Time and again, we have told you on this site that success is about the journey and not the destination and suddenly I seem to be rooting for a completely opposite term here!
Well, there is a slight reality in that too, the destination is something which fancies us, which makes us identify how much we love it, which makes us think how life would be when we reach there, which makes us work on our journey thus making it beautiful. You see, destination, success and journey are not separate things, they are all connected to each other to make you enjoy the process thoroughly!
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I’ll cross the stream, I have a dream.
Of course I believe in angels, Of course I believe that I can realize every little thing I had thought about as a child (Achieving your childhood dreams!). Not because I am an idiot, but because I love the innocence in that thought, I love the hope in it that something is going to work in my way which is going to make the dream come true. In a life where we are constantly buzzed by challenges, sometimes it is necessary to believe that something is going to happen to bring it all into perspective. Not that someone else will do it for you, you will be the one who will be doing it, but you’d do that in some style!
And when the time is right, it all falls into place. Like it is said, “When the student is ready, the master appears”.
So… What is your dream?
