Today I came across a note I'd made in my phone from back in March. It was from when I was in Texas visiting my step dad at the hospital. I was sitting in the waiting room, twiddling my thumbs and there were these three older ladies chatting while they waited for the bathroom. I don't remember the topic at hand or why one of them said this, but I hurriedly quoted her in my phone after she said these insightful words:
"There are two types of dreamers: the ones who wait for dreams to come true, and the ones who make dreams come true."
|Nov. 2010 - I found these old photos and thought they seemed appropriate|
I've heard almost-similar versions of this quote, so I have no idea who originally said it. I was just compelled to store it in my notepad for down-the-line viewing and self reflecting, and it happened that I saw it tonight and felt like sharing it with y'all.
I wish I could say that I was a thousand percent more of a dream maker, but the truth is I am a bit of both. I am a dreamer and wishful thinker, an "if it happens, then it'll happen" kinda human, but I'm also extremely aggressive and hardworking for what I want out of my life. And hey, it's been a good balance for me thus far. However, I like the quote because it reminds me to be the maker when I've caught myself twiddling my thumbs, wishing and waiting, longer than one should.
Can any of you say that you're total dream makers? Or are any of y'all halfies like me?
