Mama Kat is back from her break and so is the Writer’s Workshop! Okay… everybody together say “YAY”! I have missed my assignments for the last couple of weeks. It seems like everyone was taking a break of some kind. This week I chose for my assignment prompt #5.) Read and Respond: “If you want to make your dreams come true, the first thing you have to do is wake up.” ~J.M. Power
I might be totally off base with this, but, the way I look at/interpret that is that if you want something to happen, then you need to take action. Making your dreams come true is not a sedentary thing. If you want action you have to make action.
In my humble opinion, too many people today sit around waiting for their dreams to come true. They wait for everyone else to take action. If you aren’t willing to take action for your own dreams to come true, how can you expect anyone else to take action either? Sitting around daydreaming about your dreams coming true is going to result in exactly that. Daydreams…. If you want something to happen then get up off your butt and make it happen. Take a chance. GO for it!
You know Newton’s old laws of motion, right? An object at rest will stay at rest unless acted upon by an outside force? Well, that’s how I look at making your dreams come true. Your dreams will remain dreams unless you act upon them. You have to make things happen if you want progress or action. If you keep dreaming about things and not acting on them, then they remain only a dream. You must first wake up in order to take action on them and turn the dream into a reality.
There is nothing wrong with dreaming or with being a dreamer but if you ever want to have it be a reality then you have to be awake to the possibility and opportunities that arise to make the dream a reality. Wake up and smell the coffee! Wake up and be productive. Wake up and make your dreams come true. Here’s wishing all your (good) dreams come true!
Now for your entertainment I will include videos of my favorite songs about dreaming. Dream Weaver by Gary Wright: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nn0L6055gs Here is the URL incase you can’t get it to play)
I love Dream On by Aerosmith but I am a closet GLEEK so instead I’m going to post Matthew Morrision and Neil Patrick Harris’ version of that from Glee: (URL in case you can’t get it to play http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyN7F51g0Rs&feature=related )
