So it’s the end of another day, or the beginning of new one if we are being technical about this, and my thoughts have turned to where I am in life at the moment. To be frank, I am stuck in limbo, waiting for life to pan out before me. Everything which I could control thus far, I have. Now I wait: wait to hear back from the numerous applications and interviews which have kept me busy over the past week.
Are we always waiting for something? Waiting to be successful. Waiting to get a job. Waiting for our big break. Or maybe we are simply dreaming…hoping…wishing…for such niceties? Dreaming of being successful. Hoping our big break shall one day knock at the door and welcome us with open arms. Wishing some coveted day would arrive faster.
I find greater comfort in the belief that we are waiting for these things and that if we want them enough, if we strive to achieve, it is just a matter of time before we are presented with them. Dreaming, in the sense of having ambitions and goals, is a trait which should be encouraged, but dreaming alone provides unstable foundations unless paired with motivation to make them a reality. Plant the dream seed; feed it with ambition; shower it with self-belief and it is sure to flourish, for dreams should not be confined to the night.
