Maybe…maybe dreams are helium balloons, floating around in space around us. Even if you somehow manage to catch a helium balloon, you can’t really play with it – it keeps drifting away, up into the air. Maybe if you are in an enclosed space you won’t loose it – but who wants to play indoors all the time. But if you leave it drifting around in air, the helium will finish and the balloon will float down, straight into your waiting arms, perfect for you to play with.
They say, hold on tight to your dreams. But if you squeeze a hand full of sand too tightly, it all oozes through your fingers. Some things need time. Some dreams need to fly loose, like helium balloons, until they come within your grasp. You just need to make sure you keep an eye on them, track their path, so that when it’s time for them to become yours, you are there to catch them…to prevent them from popping on the grass, to protect them from sharp objects, to make sure no one catches YOUR balloon.
Also…don’t be greedy. You can only fully enjoy one balloon at a time. Play with the balloon you have now. Don’t loose what you have in your attempt to catch what you rather want by its string.
