Dreams are interesting endeavors. They are experiments more than anything. But, can pursuing a dream be a mistake? As mentioned in a previous post, it is hard to remember your goal when you are in the middle of it all. To answer that rhetorical question: I’m not sure that pursuing a dream can be a mistake.
Think about it: a dream is an experiment; the goal is (at best) unknown and even perhaps undefined. Pursuing a dream, therefore, can never be a mistake. Pursuing that dream is always worth it, but it must be remembered that dreams may not be what you think they are.
Sometimes dreams will enlighten, and most of the time they will be frustrating. Sometimes dreams clarify even if they are never achieved in full. All of these possibilities are in a way necessities because having a dream itself is a necessity. Imagine what life would be without dreams.
You must give up things to pursue dreams, but those things are often vague and easily given up, at least in the beginning. In dreams, mistakes will be made, but it is never a mistake to pursue your dreams.
