Perhaps the most iconic dream of all time was the one spoken about by Martin Luther King, Jr in his famous “I have a dream” speech. His dream was of equality and civil rights for all. When he spoke about his dream he inspired courage and determination in people for generations to come. His dream was for a better world and has gone down in history as one of the most famous speeches of all time. What could be more inspiring than that? Chasing after his dream made a dramatic difference not only in his life but in the lives of so many other people as well. He used his passion to inspire millions...can you imagine what the world would be like if he had chosen instead to ignore it? For him, chasing his dream was a matter of great importance.
But what about your dream? Does it matter, too? It would be easy to compare your dream to Martin Luther King, Jr’s and think that it’s not worthy of pursuing. Or to think that it’s just too difficult to attain. How could you do something so brave and challenging; would you even have the strength to do it? Or what if your dream seems small and insignificant in comparison? But the thing about dreams is, they exist for a reason. That passion and purpose found their way into your heart and there is nothing more important than following it, regardless of what that dream is.
Whether your dream is to build a better future for your children, or to simply make your home more organized and less stressful, your dream is valid and significant. Don’t be so intimidated by the thought of pursuing it that you don’t even bother to try. It’s easy for us to think that the things we care about and long for aren’t important or worth trying to achieve. After all, there’s no chance you’ll fail if you don’t bother to try. But what is most important is that you recognize the importance of the things you want in life and you try to chase after them. No matter what you think or what other people may try to tell you, all dreams matter. Even yours.
