Its funny how simply wanting something can be painful. Time crawls by as you wait for your wish to come true and frustrated, you begin to doubt whether or not you'll ever get what you want.
Sometimes I wonder if it's better to never want anything at all.
What would it feel like to go through life, never dreaming of those things that seem just out of reach, to always be satisfied with what's within your grasp?
A comfortably bland life is even less appealing than the frustrated tears that come with wanting the impossible.
There's something to be said for wanting what seems impossible.
We were made to dream and do. It's what makes us whole and its what makes us human.
The hardest part in wanting is working past fear and impatience.
Getting past those two hurdles is easier with a friend who believes in you and urges you to keep believing in yourself.
In the end, what it really comes down to is closing your eyes and imagining your goal already having happened. To dream and to want is a gift. It's what fuels our passion and pushes us along.
Whether we end up with exactly what we wanted or some never-imagined variation of our dream- what we're left with is story to tell and a well deserved treasure.
