Tell me your dreams

When is the last time you wished for something? In fact, when was the last time you allowed yourself to want something?

Without telling yourself that it was
…impractical
…unachievable
…wrong
…silly
…unmentionable
…impossible
…too big to fit into your cupboard
…too expensive
…incompatible with your lifestyle

What was it that you wanted so much but didn’t dare ask for?

Someone once told me,

We cherish our dreams and place them up on a pedestal
And then we let someone walk by and just knock them off.

For the crimes of other people’s thoughtlessness, selfishness and stupidity, we pay with our dreams. And we bring the curtain down on our Mirror of Erised. But if you were to look into it today, what would you see?

Mirror of Erised

This week of Halloween, right after the full moon – the wishing moon – I ask that you ask yourself what it is that you would have wanted, if you hadn’t learnt about disappointment and taxes first.

 

If I could give you anything you wished, what would you ask for?
