Dreaming with my eyes open
Today I was dreaming. With my eyes wide open, I was dreaming. That's how you know it was a good dream.
Do you do it too? Dream with your eyes open? I do it often.
Today I was dreaming and old dream. One of my favourite dreams. It's been in my heart for years. And whenever I need to escape, I dream this dream.
But today was different. I didn't dream a dream that seemed far away. I dreamed a dream that was close to me. A dream that could become my reality. A dream that is becoming my reality.
And it was even more exciting than ever before.
It makes me want to dream more often. Not for the sake of dreaming. But for the sake of reminding me of what could be. If I do the thing. Do the thing. The thing that scares me. The necessary thing.
I'm no longer interested in the safety of the confinement behind these four walls. My castle is a prison. Built by myself. There are no towers. No dragons or knight. Only me. In my prison. Built by myself.
And my dream... I must keep dreaming the dream. To remind me of what could be.
Today I was dreaming. And tomorrow I'll do the same. I'll dream a dream with my eyes wide open. That's how I know I'll dream a good dream.
