On “realizing dreams”

The world holds approximately seven billion human beings, and each human being holds an unfathomable number of dreams. And just as the world has finite resources and space with which to accommodate these human beings, so does it have a finite number of opportunities for those dreams to be realized. How then do we each face this uncertainty, this looming possibility that our lives will never materialize to what we hope them to be, while others steal our hopes and live out their years in seeming bliss? Are many of us doomed to possible failure, or are we not approaching life, with all its complexities and nuances, in the appropriate manner? Perhaps we are missing the point of life. Perhaps in pursuing a dream, whether attainable or not, we are ignoring the truth that surrounds us, and the beauty that it offers. Or perhaps our lives are simply dreams to begin with.
