The American Dream
I have been dwelling a lot on the words this morning! The phrase American dream was to embody the the ideal by which equality of opportunity is available to any and all, allowing the highest aspirations and goals to be achieved.
How strange is it, that this phrase has now an association to materialistic pursuits at the cost of happiness and has in a way almost limited the potentials of so many around us! So many now live this as a collective on borrowed dreams.
When the world is full of potential and we are free to dream of absolutely anything, we limit ourselves with a borrowed idea of what our potential, or definition of success, our happiness and our expression of life should look like and should be expressed as.
As you got about this weekend, look at the life you have around you, the activities you indulge in and ask is this my dream or am I living a borrowed life, fulfilling someone else's dream :D
