From movies to books to songs, you hear the resounding message: “Follow your dreams.” And I suppose there is some right in the saying. There’s certainly nothing wrong with working towards your goals.*
However, I believe people who feel strongly that following your dreams** is the one way to go have missed Something important. Not always, but occasionally what we want most is not what is best for us.
To a certain extent, I took on this subject in At Her Fingertips, but I’d like to expand on my ideas today. Bear with me! 😉
*Goals make dreams a reality. True story.
**Note that this post is not about dreams as in things that you think about while you’re sleeping*** but dreams as in things you think about in the day and would like to work towards.
***You shouldn’t follow these either. (Especially if they’re as weird as mine …)
