Slipping Through My Fingers


Slipping through my fingers, like the sand on the beach a dry summer day, my dreams are becoming distant.

They were so tangible, so real just a mere 36 hours ago, but the world refuses to stop to accomodate my heart’s desire. We are in constant motion, constant change. It’s the changes that bring the world forward, but it’s the changes that sometimes leave me with a pile of sand where a beautiful sand castle should have been. Like the waves of the ocean, the waves of reality crash down on me.

Maybe in the summer. Or in the autumn. Summer 2014? Maybe… never?

I keep wondering, is this something I need, or just something I want? And is it bad to want something that I don’t neccessarily need?

Like white sails in the distance, disappearing beyond the horizon, my dream is now so far away and out of reach that I need to stop worrying about it, thinking about it and talking about it.

Slipping through my fingers, like the warm, glistening sand, I see my dream go.

    Hevel, when you are a good parent surrounded by many children whose needs are immediate and whose dreams have a way of becoming yours, your own needs and dreams do get greatly delayed or re defined.I sincerely hope you can find a way to take care of your needs so you can continue to take care of your childrens’ needs and that your dreams can keep you afloat.
    Hold on to “someday” for your dreams.

    I found when I had kids at home to raise…my dreams sometimes got put on hold for just a bit.
    Then with some dreams, I had to rethink them, refine them, go about getting there in a new way.
    Sometimes just putting them aside…you are surprised when they come to you when you least expect them.
    Please don’t ever give up on your dreams.
    This post was so beautifully expressed/written.
    I can relate to it. And I’m sure everyone who reads it will, too.
    Here’s me wishing you all your dreams come true!!!
    HUGS!!! 🙂

    I really hope there will be a way for you to have your dream fulfilled too, and pretty soon instead of in the distant future! Your needs are important too!
