“Dreams come true. Without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them.” ~ John Updike
If you’re a cynic, you probably don’t agree with the quote above. (Then again, if you’re a cynic, this blog probably isn’t for you anyway!) But I happen to agree. Dreams can come true. I think they just need a little help to get there.
As I indicated in one of my first blog posts here, if you just expect fate to hand you what you want, it probably won’t happen. While fate certainly plays a part in what takes place, you have a brain, and the will and desire to change your life. So why would you just sit back and hope that things work out? Make those dreams come true.
At the same time, I think that if you put yourself out there and make the effort, you will be rewarded. I’ve read in a few places the quote “the harder I work, the luckier I get,” and I think the same applies to dreams. The more you reach for them, and strive for them, the closer they get. Maybe it’s because you make it happen; maybe it’s because fate just sees how much you want it then. Either way, I’ll keep working hard and take my chances!
