I was once having a conversation with a trusted friend. I was distraught because I wasn’t sure whether I should continue pursuing my current goal or change to another one. That was when he explained the four types of dreams.
“There are four types of dreams, my friend.
There are those you achieve,
There are those you let go,
There are those you delay,
And there are those that are never meant to be.
It is up to you to decide which one this is.”
Perhaps there are people who would argue over the last one, but it’s true. For example, the dream of waking up as a frog and hopping across lily pads would fit there.
Nevertheless, when making decisions, I still remember that conversation.
