I have seen this movie only twice but the second time I saw the movie this scene stuck out so vividly in my mind. And I didn’t know why until I began to think about writting this post.

I think about how true those words are. In life many people have many dreams and through the course of life their dreams dwindle. Be it lack of belief that it can be done or just that the dream just isn’t important anymore they go away many never to return again. Many times the reason is people have told their dream to someone who couldn’t understand it and because they don’t understand it they not only reject it but they try to annihilate it. For some it doesn’t stop them from attempting to reach their orginial dream and they press forward fighting everyone who is condricting their truth. For most others when the right person advises that the dream that they hold dear is impossible they walk away from it without many regrets.

It’s important for us to protect our dreams and visions. How do you do that? Keep your dream close to your heart and don’t tell everyone your dream. Everyone close to you can not appreciate your mind and heart, so when you have something deep inside of you that you want they can’t help you build it. In not understanding what is within you, they speak nonsense over your dream to get you to think that it’s either impossible or unimportant. I have seen the dreams, visions, and expectations of people, including myself, go by the wayside because we did not know the importance of keeping you dream protected.

In life we go through many steps to protect many things of various importance in our lives but many of our dreams ended up unprotected. You lock your doors when you leave your car or house. You have a password for your computer, phone, and email. But where your dreams are concerned there is not covering. Many times in the excitement of finding your dream you share it with someone in your life and they spit on your dream. When someone disregards your dream you need to know that your dream is important enough to you to keep fighting for. In life many people have had dreams that we seemily unimportant or impossible but they pressed forward. They had to have had many people say that it would never happen but through their blood, sweat, tears, and faith they made it.

I encourage everyone to live you dreams. No matter what age you are live them. If not you then who? Why should others build their dreams and visions and get what they have expected while you just get what comes to you? I beg  you to protect your dream and that you exercise wisdom in sharing your dream. And if someone doesn’t understand your dream I pray that God gives you the strength to press forward and fight for your dream, vision, or expection.
