Decade 1: I have big dreams and I will make them come true!

Decade 2: Am I good enough for my dreams?

Decade 3: Having dreams is a waste of time.  

Decade 4: Dreams may not come true, but I can and will effect change in my life

Decade 5: My dreams were born of the things I enjoy doing the most, and I'm going to spend the rest of my time doing those things for the greater good!  

The take away: Instead of happiness, search for something that gives your life meaning
"The old dreams were good dreams; they didn't work out, but glad I had them." ~Clint Eastwood as Robert Kincaid in Bridges of Madison County. 

What's your opinion about hopes and dreams? 

This post was inspired by a Life In Focus photography group on FB that offers photography project(s) 1-2x/year. This weeks topic was Hopes and Dreams. xo

Photographs make great writing prompts. I can sense that you've really been moved by what you saw to write this.

I agree that dreams are born from things that we enjoy the most. The continuous pursuit of the joy that these things bring us is actually what dreaming is about.

I believe that dreams are one of the things that keep us from being motivated by life. Dreams for me is somehow similar with purpose. When we dream of achieving something, we are building our purpose in life. Well, as for me, I have lots of dreams for my family. I want them to live a life that is good enough for them. I want them to be happy with their lives.
