Distant Dreams

There is nothing wrong with being a dreamer, as long as your dreams make you happier, make you an achiever, make you grow and feel better. As long as your own dreams don't make you a prisoner of an imaginary world.

Scrolling the feeds of social media we see so many perfect pictures, perfect couples, perfect bodies, perfect love, perfect life... we start doubting about our own lives... we start dreaming about something that looks ideal... something that makes you think "I'm doing it all wrong". There is nothing worse than doubting of your own life because you are the creator of your it and it's a product of your own choices.

We are surrounded by "tools" (favorite things that make us happy: friends, hobbies, activities..) but instead of using them we dream, about something far in time and space.

One of my favorite authors Dale Carnegie said: "We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon-instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today".
How true. We are often blind because we focus on the wrong things, on the wrong life standards. Influenced by other we tend to put off living and dream of "perfection" , meanwhile, the life passes, we age, and we "the roses of our garden" because of lack of attention, die.
