It’s overwhelming to think about what will happen if you follow a path that isn’t very practical or that isn’t taken my many.
It’s unnerving to do what you think you can’t do.
It’s frightening to think that you might fail and it might break your spirit completely.
It’s chilling when the task ahead seems daunting and you’re not sure where to start.
If you are always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be.
Visualize the life you really want to create and not the one you think you should live.
Live your dream.
I am taking part in The Write Tribe Festival of Words 8th – 14th December 2013.The Theme for today is Dream.

Couldn’t have thought of a better way to end the FOW. Another great “Drabble” from you. Enjoyed reading your work Shilpa 🙂 It was awesome!
December 21, 2013 1:59 pm|
Thanks alot, Sid! Glad you liked the various drabbles written for this fest! Thank you for all the support! 🙂
December 14, 2013 12:05 am|
Awesome message Shilpa.. Just that with the realities of today, sometimes it is hard. Nevertheless, powerful message in 100 words, and you are the ‘undisputed queen’ of these short posts.. I’m your new fan 🙂
December 21, 2013 2:06 pm|
Yes, it is hard sometimes but never impossible. Thanks Nischala for all your support and encouragement! Appreciate it! 🙂

Many people want to live their dreams but still want to have a secure life!
December 21, 2013 2:08 pm|
Yes, giving up comforts or a secured life is not easy! But one has to take calculated risks in life for the dream to be a reality.
December 14, 2013 12:43 am|
This should be a Fridge magnet. Its short, sweet, concise and truth in a nugget. 🙂
December 21, 2013 2:10 pm|
Yes, a constant reminder to live your dreams!
December 14, 2013 12:48 am|
Our dreams are like a mirage, but not difficult to capture them and make them into a reality. A fine write Shilpa 🙂 Congrats 🙂
December 21, 2013 2:11 pm|
Well said, Sunita. Thanks 🙂
December 14, 2013 2:07 am|
Words of wisdom to live by!
December 21, 2013 2:12 pm|
Thanks Robyn 🙂
December 14, 2013 5:51 am|
That is one inspiring drabble Shilpa 🙂 “Dare to dream and then live your dreams”, easier said than done, but every attempt is worth it 🙂
December 21, 2013 2:14 pm|
Thanks Reshma 🙂
December 14, 2013 5:57 am|
Lovely inspirational message, and that too only in a 100 words 😀
December 21, 2013 2:23 pm|
Thank you Jairam! 🙂
December 14, 2013 6:10 am|
I love your inspirational message in this post. It is scary to dare because of the fear of failure, but wouldn’t it be awesome to take the chance and succeed? ♥
December 21, 2013 2:29 pm|
You are spot on, Kathy. The fear of failure can be a big hindrance in taking a new path or following a new dream!
December 14, 2013 7:49 am|
yup, shilpa well said!
Dare to be different!
December 21, 2013 2:30 pm|
Thanks Ruchira 🙂

Live your dream… it’s never too late to mend, or to check if straying away from the herd can do good…
December 21, 2013 2:36 pm|
December 14, 2013 9:32 am|
You’re such an inspiration, Shilpa! I admire your absolute organization and am thrilled to find your post in my mailbox first thing in the morning.
It is amazing how the level of our self-confidence is directly proportional to our efforts and therefore, the distance between us and our dreams.
December 21, 2013 2:42 pm|
Aww!! Thanks for such a heartwarming comment. You made my day! You are a BIG inspiration too, Vidya! 🙂
True, fail in ourselves leads us closer to our dreams!
December 14, 2013 9:54 am|
Great message, Shipa!
December 21, 2013 2:44 pm|
Thanks Rachna 🙂
December 14, 2013 10:38 am|
Your post can be summed up in one word – Inspirational. And that’s a nice way to end the FOW.
December 21, 2013 2:45 pm|
Thank you Suzy! 🙂
December 14, 2013 10:51 am|

Shilpa this a very inspiring message on the last day of the Festival, beginning from Memories and ending with Dreams.

The perfect way to end this festival of words! 🙂

Well said, LP. A new day brings new hopes for a better life!
December 14, 2013 3:32 pm|
Very inspiring. Yes that is how it should be. We need our dreams to sustain life..
December 21, 2013 3:03 pm|
Thank you Richa! Agree, having a dream is what keeps you alive. Overcoming the challenges make life worth living.
December 14, 2013 3:48 pm|
That’s a great message. Most of the time we are so busy struggling to fit in we forget we also have the option to stand out. Lovely.
December 21, 2013 3:04 pm|
I loved the way you have expressed this thought, T 🙂
December 14, 2013 7:25 pm|
As i say to my friends – Dream Dreams 😀
December 21, 2013 3:06 pm|
December 14, 2013 10:46 pm|
Every line is so inspiring. Yes, to achieve peace and happiness we need to live our dreams because other wise life will be just a bag of regrets…Great post 🙂
December 21, 2013 3:10 pm|
True. Somebody said, a man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams! So dream on! Thanks Prasanna 🙂
December 15, 2013 12:41 am|
December 21, 2013 3:10 pm|
Thanks SG 🙂
December 16, 2013 6:54 am|
Exactly, to do that, one must be able to take the risks, for without plunging in, you would never know what you have missed in life.
December 21, 2013 3:12 pm|
Well said, Rama. Our regrets aren’t what we did, but what we didn’t do!!
December 16, 2013 12:09 pm|
Super cute 🙂 Yes, let’s create the life that we dream of !!
December 21, 2013 3:14 pm|
December 16, 2013 3:33 pm|
There are dreams which become realities in life.
December 21, 2013 3:15 pm|
Yes, only if we dare to dream! Thanks Mr Chowla 🙂
December 16, 2013 10:33 pm|
Something which I keep stressing time and again. So what if we fail despite everything, we would know for sure that we would have to try some other way. We should dare to dream and equip ourselves to face the challenges too. Coz without the ups and downs, victory wouldnt be thrilling 😉
Wonderfully written 🙂
December 21, 2013 3:44 pm|
Agree with you completely, Ashwini! Failures are stepping stones to success, so we must face the challenges boldly, learn from them and grow.
December 17, 2013 1:58 am|
Beautifully said, Shilpa and it’s mental blocks that prevent us from dreaming in life. Failure is a missed opportunity and a lesson so that we may bounce back.
December 21, 2013 3:47 pm|
‘Failure is a missed opportunity’… so true! Thanks Vishal.
December 17, 2013 10:55 am|
guess we may not know if a path is practical unless we tread the path.
December 21, 2013 3:47 pm|
December 18, 2013 12:14 am|
Inspirational message. We truly donot know of our capabilities unless and otherwise we have stepped out of our comfort zones !
December 21, 2013 3:53 pm|
Absolutely! It is said that the comfort zone is the great enemy to creativity; moving beyond it necessitates intuition, which in turn configures new perspectives and conquers fears and helps us to go for our dreams!
December 18, 2013 10:11 am|
Beautiful work. your drabbles are motivating, inspiring , insightful and introspective. If ever there is an award for drabbles, i would nominate you for the award . you surely are the “drabble queen”.
December 21, 2013 3:55 pm|
Aww!! You are too sweet and kind 🙂
December 18, 2013 5:42 pm|
If you are living your dream you are truly ALIVE
good piece of advice
December 21, 2013 3:56 pm|
Thanks Afshan! Glad you relate to this thought too 🙂
December 19, 2013 7:02 pm|
Powerful stuff again, Shilpa! I echo every bit of it!
December 21, 2013 3:57 pm|
Thanks a lot, Corinne! 🙂
