When you get a chance, check out the definitions for, “dream”. Every entry describes something intangible. Maybe your dream career sounds a little too dreamy. Maybe you fell in love with work that, when declared, often receives a patronizing response.
Remember this, God didn’t create your ability to dream to ensure they all stay hypothetical. You begin creating tangible dreams when you begin making plans.
Of course, there’s no guarantee we’ll acquire the jobs we currently label as dreams, but there’s no point in dwelling on, “what if’s” when we don’t try to make them a reality. Have dreams, make plans, and get stuff done, all while resting in your identity as a child of God.
So yes, friend, you are allowed to dream. Just make sure your dreams don’t stay bottled up in your head. For lack of a better phrase, let them be unbound.
“Don’t live down to expectations. Go out there and do something remarkable.” – Wendy Wasserstein
