Not easily. Dreams come in many forms and some at great cost. It can be excruciatingly painful to recognize that’s all it ever was–a dream. Not to be realized. Ever. The dream beckons mightily and nothing in the dreamer wants to release it.
When is it time to bid farewell to what might have been?
“Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.”
Well, Langston, sometimes the only way the bird is gonna soar is to let it go.
“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” ~J.K. Rowling
I’m going with Rowling on this one. Live and go on. Dream a new dream.
