Daily Prompt: Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)

 What is the best dream you’ve ever had? Recount it for us in all its ethereal glory. If no dream stands out in your memory, recount your worst nightmare. Leave no frightening detail out.


“Go on” I told her.  “This is what you’ve been dreaming about, now’s your time. Seize your dream.”

“I don’t want to.”

“Why not?  You worked so hard for this.  You earned it.”

“If I do this now, I’ll have accomplished my dream.  Then what do I have?  I need to have aspirations and goals. I haven’t planned beyond this.”

“There’s plenty of time to make new goals.  You don’t have to see them right now but, you need to live this moment.  Live it now.  Bask in the glow of a ‘job-well-done’ for awhile.  Then consider how to apply this achievement towards the realization of your next dream.”

“You’re right,” she said.  She stood and headed for the dais.  She was beaming.
