Remember the dream

Remember the dream. Remember the night you first believed maybe, just maybe, it might come together. Maybe, just maybe this is something worth pursuing. Because even though it may take time to come together, in this current season you will come to know: you have not dreamed a weightless, fleeting dream but one that requires slow and steady growth. Hold onto this. Because the truth is, things may happen a little differently than you were expecting, and you may find yourself watching others walk into the seasons you were praying for, but none of that will take anything away from the beautiful things that are still in store. You may find you have to take the longer, scenic route but it will not be without the view of the hills, rivers, and lakes that remind you: in this big world, there is still a place for you. There is still room for you. So remember the dream. Then, lift it up. Lift it high off the ground. Lift it high off of the timeline you assigned it to and believe with all you have, there is still more to you. There is more to this dream, there is more to this journey. And things may not look like you thought they would, but you can do so many small, meaningful things for good and along the way,  they will remind you why you dreamed this dream in the first place. Because one day, it will all add up and you find yourself standing in a library, built tall of every beautiful, honest thing you ever made, and then? You will only keep dreaming, creating, making, giving...and inspiring others to do the same. You have permission to do that. You have permission to work for that. You have permission to remember the dream. — MHN
