A letter to: The Dreamer

Dear Dreamer,

How have you been? How are your dreams doing? Are those little, yet substantial, creatures growing and multiplying in your heart and mind? How many of them have already come to the real world since I last talked to you?

Are you excited? Maybe you’ve found a new dream to call yours and now you’re working hard to make it real. The view from your train’s window is idyllic and even though you’re still not in your destination you can see beauty in the journey.

Are you scared? Because of people who try to push you down, because of the world or life itself. Because none of your plans have gone the way you thought it would. The routine finally caught you and you feel tired, empty, sad and used.

Are you lost? After so many achievements or so many losses, you don’t know anymore where you’re heading to. It’s like raining in a big ocean that doesn’t need water anymore. You may have not expressed it into words already, but deep inside, even though it’s hard to admit, you know you’re lost.

Dear dreamer, you can have all self confidence, support and strength of the world, but I have to tell you it’s inevitable: sometimes you will feel really small. You, who have spent so much time with your head up in the clouds will have to face the hard feeling of hitting the ground. However, may I tell you, these aren’t signs of weakness.

As a dreamer, you will learn that closed doors will always appear in order to prepare you to something even better and bigger, life’s a classroom which teaches you how to have really important things inside you such as patience, endurance, stamina and independence. It’s not about how many times you fell down, but how much time you spent in the ground when you were already… ready to get up.

You also need to know that when you conquer a dream by making it come true, it’s time to get a new one. It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be thankful or satisfied with the things and experiences you already own. As a dreamer, I bet you often live on the future, but don’t forget that you own the present and that this present is actually the future you were craving  so much for the other day. You have all the right of being fulfilled with your present life (actually, please, be thankful for all your past conquers), but you can’t forget that dreaming, dreaming big, is one of the things that makes us want to go forward.

Be excited about your life, learn from every day it makes you experience. Dream big (your definition of dreaming big), learn from the journey balance present and future and please enjoy the view.
