“I always catch the clock it’s 11:11
And now you want to talk
It’s not hard to dream
You’ll always be my…” Konstantine, by Something Corporate
There’s a legend that when it turns 11:11: you are supposed to make a wish. And for the super passionate and adventurous ones of us: talk about all your dreams for a full minute. Right now, ready go….
Some may find this a difficult task. But like one of the most heart-wrenching songs I’ve ever heard , by one of the most incredible songwriters I have ever met (from whose concert I just returned), says: it’s not hard to dream when you know exactly what you want. When its been placed in your heart from long before. When your dream has become a part of your reality. You could talk about it for a minute, you could talk about it for an hour, you could talk about it for a lifetime.
Everyone has a dream. Some have a constant one that has either haunted them or motivated them for many years while they wait for it to come true. Some have a new dream, one that portrays hope with every fiber of its being. What we need to do more than anything is believe in the beauty of our dreams. In the beauty that, some day, if it’s best for us: that dream will become reality. Or if it’s not, it will morph or transform entirely into a new dream, even better than the one we initially hoped for. A new calling and vision. But whatever it is, speak your dream into life! Don’t hide it, in fear that it will never come true. Or in fear that someone will judge you for it. At the end of the day we all have the one thing that it will never be hard for us to continue believing and hoping for. And it’s worth your hope and words and faith and life and energy to dream, speak, and pursue into being.
Happy 11/11…11:11. Here’s to keeping the dream alive.
