I’m not exactly sure what I expected to happen when I buried my dream.
I wasn’t fully aware I had used that wording until I reread the post about giving up.
You can give up a hobby but a dream? I don’t think that’s possible. Not really.
You can quit karate, yoga, or running and take up tai chi, meditation, or spinning.
You’re allowed to change your mind. Or just lose interest. There will be activities you’re forced to quit due to circumstance beyond your control. And, yes, there may even be times you notice you’re working hard and getting nowhere.
There are many reasons one might walk away from something to search for something else.
Dreams are different.
Whether you nurture them or neglect them, they stay.
They will push through soil—rich and fertilized or dry and cracked. Dreams will find a way to break through. Perhaps even producing flowers or fruit.
You can actively pursue your dream or not but it isn’t going to magically change.
I mean, honestly, when I buried an apple seed and it sprouted, did I expect a peach tree to grow?
My Sunday thoughts in 200 words or less.
If you neglect a dream, can it still thrive without you nurturing it? I don’t know how healthy those apples are going to be, but they’re growing despite some seriously bad conditions…
