Where You Dream is as Important as What You Dream Of

dreams 2There are two places from which to dream – a place of frustration, or a place of contentment.  Each has its own perspective and advantages. 

Dreaming from a place of frustration is necessary, because without it, nothing would ever change.  Dreaming from a place of contentment is necessary, because without it, nothing would ever remain rooted where it should be. 

Dreaming from a place of frustration arms us with hope.  Dreaming from a place of contentment coils us in faith.

Dreaming from a place of frustration helps define our boundaries.  Dreaming from a place of contentment helps raise our standards.

Dreaming from a place of frustration makes us desperate enough to act.  Dreaming from a place of contentment makes us patient enough to wait.

Dreaming from a place of frustration leverages anger into something positive.  Dreaming from a place of contentment leverages gratitude into something active.

Each complements the other, and both are necessary.

If you only dream out of frustration, then almost any change will do.  Dreams then lead to impulsiveness.

If you dream only out of contentment, then almost any change is suspect.  Dreams then lead to complacency.

Stand in different places when you dream.  Your health and balance demand it.  But dream nonetheless, no matter where you stand.  Don’t let your circumstances frame your dreams.  Insist that your dreams frame your circumstances.
