Dreamers are waiting for good things to happen that might never happen. Because the world, as we know it, could end at any moment.
So, keep this in mind. You’re a wonderful design, a unique creation of God.
And you’re not exactly like any of the other 7 billion people on the Earth. So, whether you’re asleep or awake, your dreams won’t be exactly like anyone else’s either.
But so many dreamers are waiting for someone to explain the dreams.
Your mind puts together a mish-mash of things you did during the day. And they don’t make any sense. So, they’re just for fun. And if you’ve ever dreamed about flying high above the trees or clouds, you know what I mean. In real life you can’t do that, but in your dreams it’s so much fun. Right?
Sometimes I like to do what I call shade tree dreaming. And quite a few famous inventors had some of their best ideas under a shade tree. Or in a swing. Or in a chair at a desk with their eyes closed.
If and when you decide to give yourself time to daydream, be sure to take the time to write down your best ideas. There’s a good chance you won’t use them right away. But you never can tell when they’ll come in real handy. And maybe not just for you.
Way back when, I wrote a special poem to dreamers. Because I woke up that morning after one of those silly mish-mash dreams. And I hope it encourages you to dream the dreams that live only in your special mind.
Dream The Dreams
Waking up from silly dreams
Isn’t silly as it seems
Because dreamers are what makes the world go ’round.
With those pictures in your head
As you rise up out of bed
You might find the thing that needed to be found.
You might dream of flying cars
That go cruising through the stars,
Then design a brand new turbo rocket ship.
You might wake up from your sleep
With an awesome way to keep
People safer when they’re going on a trip.
What if you could dream a dream
That, to some, could sound extreme.
But your idea helped to ease a lot of pain?
Well, put on your dreaming hat
‘Cause we need more dreams like that,
And they’re waiting to be dreamed inside your brain.
If you’re eager to create,
And you find you just can’t wait,
And your dreams are overflowing from your ears,
Take a breath and write ’em down,
With a smile and not a frown.
Then your dreams become ideas you’ll have for years.
When you dream, don’t think it’s odd.
Dreams are thoughtful gifts from God.
They can help to give your weary mind some rest.
So relax and dream away.
Every day’s a brand new day
To begin to dream the dreams that you dream best.
