Movement BE: Dreaming

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."


We dream every single night during sleep, whether we remember it or not. These dreams are reflective of our subconscious. Likewise, the subconscious plays a large role in the type of “dreams” we use to describe our most heartfelt hopes. In other words, our dreams & goals are largely fueled by our wants and desires; our innermost cravings to achieve something greater than ourselves. So what would happen if we let go of the thoughts that impeded the natural path on which our dreams take us? The answer is that we would start going in a more straight line towards our dreams instead of the more common zig zag. This isn’t to say that obstacles won’t come into your life, but you will much better be able to handle tough situations.

Dream chasing is more than working hard (although that’s a huge part of it). It’s about becoming your dream through living it out on a day-to-day basis. There’s not one moment in which you can say you’ve reached your dream. There’s no finish line. Achieving your dreams is about basing everything you do on your vision. Martin Luther King admirably lived his life in harmony with his vision. That’s what living the dream is all about.
