Dare to Dream

This past week there was a flurry of activity at delis, gas stations and bodegas across the country as the Mega Millions jackpot hit soaring heights.  The odds were strongly stacked against the millions of hopefuls purchasing tickets, but with the jackpot so big, the dreamers were compelled to take action in an attempt to actually obtain their dreams.

I was not one of the millions to purchase a ticket or tickets for Mega.  I am not much of a gambler. I never win anything so why would my luck suddenly change?  Right now, every dollar counts.  I’d rather give that dollar to the bartender who throws that extra shot into my drink, to be quite honest.  But that doesn’t mean I don’t dream.

Everybody dreams, no matter how practical they are.  The grass is always greener in a dream.  The world is perfect.  You don’t have to work. You can travel the world.  You can have shiny new things, a beautiful home, all the things money can buy, and even some leftover to donate to charity, because you know, it would be totally selfish to go from your broke self to a millionaire without remembering where you came from.

It is true that not everyone’s dreams are the same, but when it comes to money, these are the things people purchase to make them happy.  The money won’t buy family or love, but it would relieve the stress of earning a living.

But not everyone can win the lotto, and there are other ways to make your dreams come true. But if all your dreams come true, would your life be fulfilled?

For me, I believe the answer is no.  I believe strongly in the art of always wanting more.  Goal setting. Earning and achieving, combined with a little fate, or luck if you will, and perhaps I will be close to  fulfilled.  But I will always want more. I want to take in all that life can offer as best as I can. Sure, money would help achieve a lot, but I don’t want it all. I want more, but I don’t want it all.  I want to dream.  Dreams are what make life worth living.
