Just beyond reach...

dangling...
tempting...
a dream
just
beyond
my
reach...

Do you have one? A dream dangling there just beyond your reach....where you can see it but just can't seem to touch it or experience it to the fullest. I am aware of that today, aware that no matter how hard I try to reach for that dream...no matter how close I seem to come on some days I just can't grab a hold of it....know that it is real...
I wonder if I torture myself with this dream...if I keep it at arms length just to see what might happen if I do grab it....or if it is real...perhaps only in my mind...in my dreams...an illusion of something that might be...could be...should of been...
Today, I wonder what I should do about that dream...should I hope that just the sight of it should push me forward? Should I try harder to make it come true? Give it more time and space to drop closer to me...so that I could hold it in my hands? Should I let it go?
This dream that is just beyond my reach...holds great strength for me on days...holds great strength over me on other days...and yet I keep it close where my eyes can see it...and I hold it in my heart....but I cannot seem to either let it go or pull it close....
Today, I am aware of this dream just beyond reach....and today, I question it....
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

PS: Do you have a dream just beyond reach that you question to find out more about yourself?

I don't think questioning a dream diminishes it's strength, or your commitment to it...in fact perhaps, the questions allow you to clarify the dream/tweak it...because I know for myself, as I change, my dreams must also shift somewhat...this is simply the nature of living.

gentle steps,
