Follow thy dreams?

25 Nov

How many of you believe in following your dreams? I am creating a poll. I know most are going to click yes. But wait, a minute, this is not just about believing. This is about following or at least making a promise that I will give thought and action to it. So, I will probably rephrase my poll … And be honest…

The mind's eye


By the way, has anyone read the book, “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho? Or “Eat, Love, Pray” by Elizabeth Gilbert? Maybe I will post my version of the reviews shortly. These dreams I am speaking about are something which the heart keeps on repeating and the soul promising the heart that, “Yes, I will do that dear, maybe today, tomorrow, or perhaps right now…”. Maybe it will stop repeating when the soul tries to smother it or ignore it.

I have a few things to accomplish in my life. And I just made the decision to start accomplishing them, one by one…

And I just started with the first one.

So… here goes the poll… And remember, be honest about it…

Edited to Add: Its been a few days since I started this poll. And not a single person I know has voted No. It still shows 0%. I even thikn Ram(one oft he commentors below) claims No, but he does not seem to have voted so. That in itself that no one has voted No, shows that this is a good sign.

So, well, what stops the majority of us from pursuing our dreams?
