All the Dreams We Cannot Have

And don’t aim to dance among the stars – aim for the whole shebang!
You dreamed and you forgot
Or someone told you 
You couldn’t have it
So you didn’t

You came to this world
Innocent and full of hope
Which you lost
Because someone else 
Had already lost their hope

People talk life down
This and that and all the other can’t happen
It’s not possible
Only the lucky ones succeed
Why can’t you be a lucky one?

Show me the rule that says you can’t
There is no rule

There is also no worthiness
No deserving
There is just a life to be lived
In the best way
Why live it in the worst way
Because someone else doesn’t believe
In dreams?

Dreams are real
They are the voice of your heart
The intentions of your spirit
The journey forward
The road less travelled
The golden path
The ideal

Your true soul journey

Take your dreams back
Hold onto them
They belong to you
They should never have been cast aside
To wither and die in obscurity

Be your dreams
They’re not thoughts 
Nor are they actions
They are you being who and what you are meant to be
Otherwise you would have no dreams

If you are optimistic
If you believe
If you try and try again
If you forget the rules of your world
And make new rules
Unbreakable rules
You will have
All the dreams
You think
You cannot have

I'm a writer, public speaker, medium, and spiritual thinker. I suffered from acute anxiety from the age of 16 until I was well into my 50s, after fearlessly exploring many ideas, philosophies, and tools, I finally found methods that helped me return my mind to a better normal. One of the things I hated about anxiety was the way people treated me like a fool or a problem, I have two degrees and I'm a (much) retired black belt, my IQ is decent, but I constantly felt like a complete idiot, something that was exacerbated by never feeling like the real me. The girl who could laugh endlessly about the smallest things, and had a real excitement about what life had to offer her. I didn't need anyone else to tell me I wasn't 'right', I knew that better than anyone. My mission now is to support people suffering as I did with a message of support with what they're going through, tools and ideas that might help, and a strong message of hope for the future. At 63, which I am at the time of writing, many people I know are in a rut, yet having beaten anxiety I'm now doing more with my life than I ever did when I was struggling just to get up in the morning, let alone face the day. It's a wonderful feeling - so the main message is that it doesn't matter how long you've been struggling or what age you are, when you beat anxiety you will get an entirely new lease of life - and that's fantastic at any age. On a personal note I'm married to my soul mate, we have 5 cats, and I live in the middle of the UK. I follow a number of fantastic thinkers, as it's important to immerse yourself in healthy thinking as often as you can, I'm a Toastmaster and professional public speaker, and I keep life simple and encourage my clients to do the same, and my friends.
