~ Dido: Life for Rent
I’ve always thought that I would love to live by the sea
To travel the world alone and live my life more simply
I have no idea what’s happened to that dream
Cos there’s really nothing left here to stop me

This song haunts me. I think sometimes we forget what are the most important things to us. Forget that the things that we hold dear, are what drive us. Or ought to drive us. I know, I forgot that. I thought that the things I loved most, could never be the basis..of my life. So I sought elsewhere, tried different things, that never worked out as I thought they would. And the thing I loved most became a hobby, then it became neglected..and finally I thought I had lost my ability to do it. But I'm trying to stop myself from thinking like that. I'm trying to teach myself that I'm allowed to ..essentially do what makes me happy. People, we are allowed to be happy! Even if it's only for an hour a day. We shouldn't let people tell us that we aren't allowed to dream.
Think of those rare times when you wake up after a beautiful dream. You don't really remember it, the only thing you know is, that you have this unbelievable feeling inside you and that feeling lingers all through the day. What if..we could remember our dreams? What if we could remember the dreams we have when we are awake as well?
Here's to keep dreaming!

I know it's probably pathetic, but when i was playing around with the Visual Thesaurus, I got completely overwhelmed. It's just so..beautiful! {via I love everything}
