A Million Dreams
A Million Dreams
There is a beautiful song in the Greatest Showman. The words of the song are as under:
"Every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams are all it's gonna take
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make"
The words are so simple yet they have such depth. As a child, I was like this girl who had so much faith in her dreams. The impossibility of a task made it more desirable. Somewhere while growing up, I lost that little girl to the negative comments of the people around. I lost my hope for my fears. But when I hear this song, it lights up my hope. It reminds me of what I am still capable of despite the fears and challenges.
The best part about life is it has a way to remind you of who you are. My daughter is just like me. She is so full of dreams, hope, and courage. Although she is just 16 months old, she has a way of getting what she wants. This mini-me has made me realize the value of enjoying the little moments every day. She inspires me to become a better version of myself each day. Just like this beautiful song lights up my self-belief. It makes me want to forget about my fears, feel the excitement of making a dream come true, and work towards it. Each one of us has this little child who is so full of hope and dreams. Please don't shut the voice of that child. It's better to fail while trying to make a dream come true rather than giving it up. I am on the journey of fulfilling my dream of writing and inspiring people around me just like the little boy in the song "A million dreams". What about you?
