Dreams that steal my sleep !


Some time back I was discussing with a dear friend of mine about how dreams have the power to change lives. True dreams aren’t the ones which we see while asleep, they are the ones that make us forget our hunger and sleep. They lead us to be passionate enough, to make sacrifices for which the world may call one “Crazy” or “Workaholics” !

A few lines from a Bollywood song which give the same message :

Jo tujhe jagaye
Neendein teri udaaye
Khwab hai Sachcha wohi

Neendon mein jo aaye
Jise tu bhool jaaye
Khwab woh sachcha nahin

Angaaron ko jagaaye
Koyalon sa jo gaaye
Khwab hai sachcha wohi

Lehrein jo uthaaye
Paaniyon ko hilaaye
Khwab hai sachche wohi

English Translation of this song is as below :

The one that keeps you awakes and steals your sleep,

That only is a real dream..

The one which you dream while asleep and forget when you wake up,

That is not a real dream..

The one which awakens embers, and which sings like cuckoos,

That alone is a real dream..

One which produces waves, and moves the oceans,

That only is a real dream..

I listen to this song often every time I need some inspiration.

Dreams give us vigor and passion. It is the beauty of risking every cent you have for a dream that nobody sees but you.

Don’t just follow your dreams,

    theRe are two kinds of dreams..
    dreams to repair stress..
    and dreams to create..
    and the dreams
    to create are
    Lucid waking
    kind now that
    have no limits
    or expectations
    except for
    a new
    way of
    and feeling..
    and expresSinG

  2. Wonderful post, Himali. I’m a dream-chaser myself. Too many people grow old regretting the things they never did. Regretting the risks they never took. Hope you’re running after your dreams too sweetie.
    🙂 ❤
