Have you ever had someone make fun of your dream? I think if you’re a resilient dreamer then you’ve been scoffed at a lot. The more audacious your dreams, the more laughter you attract. It’s how we as individuals deal with each other, I guess. When we can’t seem to imagine what the other person is trying to achieve…or when we wish we could achieve the same thing but deem it as impossible in our own little minds…we laugh.
That’s how it goes, I guess?
It’s why children lose their vivid imagination and colorful dreams as they grow older. Every laugh acts like a scissor that snips, snaps their dreams and shreds them. So kids lose what they grow up dreaming. It’s like having this child dreaming of becoming a vet, taking care of cats and nurturing rabbits, only to grow up and own a butchery.
I remember once one of my kid cousins went to a butchery with my brother. He was a very animal-loving child. So he started telling my brother that he wanted to see a sheep or a goat or something like. One of the guys went to the cold room inside and got a dead slaughtered goat. The kid started crying.
Poor traumatized kid.
But seriously, sometimes we need to think twice about what impact we leave on the people around us for some of them might be quite vulnerable.
That’s it for today.
If you think you’re too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito in the room. – Anita Roddick
