FEATURED INK: Dream

In the midst of working through the day-to-day laundry list of to-dos, let's not lose sight of what life really is.

Life by definition is "the condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death".

I emphasize "preceding death" not to be satirical but to remind anyone who may be reading this that our time here on earth is limited. We all will die at one point or another. That is an unyielding fact that no sentient being can bypass. 

Why not use this knowledge to push ourselves to carve out lives fit for the boundless and ostentatious dreams of a child? What did you dream about as a child? What kind of experiences do you personally wish to have during your time here? Taking a moment of self-inquiry to delve into what it is we actually desire--to revel in the dreams that connect us with our raison d'etre--is what allows us to move past a robotic state of survival and step into a state of thriving. 

Whatever came up for you during that brief period of self-inquiry, I challenge you to make a commitment to yourself to take an actionable step toward realizing this dream. This step can be as small as setting up an appointment with a college advisor or laying out gym clothes before bed to prepare for a morning stretch.

Along the way towards realizing our dreams we are bound to run into obstacles that will not feel good. During those moments, it will be helpful to think of the bigger picture. When put into context, it becomes evident that the only constant in life is change and that everything, even that thing that seems so daunting in the now, will eventually pass. Whether we choose to act upon our dreams or allow these dreams to pass with us is up to us to decide.
