Once upon a time, our dreams were just… dreams. They were only desires that lay deep within our hearts of an ideal future. They were all in our heads where we could make them as wild as we wanted them to be. When we dream, we want for it to come true. We look forward to the day we can live out our dreams, to the day we can stop hoping so much for the future to come so soon.
But, as we get closer to the end of our journey, we start to doubt, do we really want our dreams to come true now? What will we do after that? When our dreams are about to be brought into our reality, we start asking ourselves, what if it doesn’t turn out the way we’ve always dreamt it to be?
February 2020. We’ve heard about the far away storm but our birds were still chirping, and our calendars were still gleaming with bookings. Our resolution was hovering around plans of new recruits, promotions, and expansion. We were roaring and soaring high.
Gleefully, we wrapped our heads in turbans and observed the sinking of the sun on camels’ backs, amid massive sand dunes. Just like real desert men.
