There are no rules

I love reading.  I love reading a phrase that speaks to me.  I feel like I’m the first person to truly get what the writer was trying to make the reader see, or feel, or experience.  There is a phrase I read recently that I think about all the time.

There are no rules where you dream.

Think about that.  Each time I read it; it means something different to me.  But that’s what words are for, right?  It’s about discovery and learning and growth. It’s about thinking of something in a different way, looking at the world around you in a different way. Maybe the words make you feel a certain way about yourself, your lover, your friend, your world.

There are no rules where you dream.

I can dream about the person I want to be.  I can dream about the person I wish I was.  I can dream about the person I am meant to be.  All different, but so very similar.  

There are no rules where you dream.

I can daydream.  I do daydream.  There are no rules when I daydream.  No one knows I’m doing it.  Daydreaming of living in a different place, living in a different time, living in a different world.

There are no rules where you dream.

Sometimes, dreams take me back to times in my life I don’t want to remember.  But there are no rules.  I have to remember that – there are no rules.  There are no rules that say I have torepeat my past mistakes, re-live my past tragedies, or feel the shame and guilt of those times.  

There are no rules where you dream.

So, tell me.  If there are no rules where you dream, what will you dream?  Where will your dreams take you? 

Remember, there are no rules where you dream.
