To Dream the Impossible Dream

Because I am a Dreamer of the Impossible and believe it can happen!

To Dream…the Impossible Dream… what does that mean to you? What seems out of reach in your life? In the play for which this song was written, The Man of La Mancha, Don Quixote explains his quest and the reasons behind it. He saw windmills and believed they were dragons, which he fought believing that he was doing a noble deed.

To fight…the unbeatable foe... Sometimes I feel like I am fighting against the wind and it feels as if nothing is being accomplished then suddenly things begin to fall in place and I know that because I am striving to do the right and noble thing in all I do that even though people might deem me crazy, as they did Quixote, I will be proud of myself. You cannot ask for more than that can you?

To bear…with unbearable sorrow…When a mother gives birth it is with agonizing birth pains. You are told to push and from personal experience it feels as if the pain is tearing your insides apart, but the result is the tiny baby to whom you give your heart and are able to hold in your arms. Giving up a relationship that you know isn’t right, walking away from friends that you know are leading you down a garden path that leads straight into hell and causes you a world of trouble isn’t as easy as it should be, to walk away without looking back is painful but the peace you feel in your heart, mind and soul is well worth the pain as the baby is to the mom.



To run…where the brave dare not go…I remember my “Pop” saying that my dad, “the Champ”, would go places on his motorcycle that he wouldn’t even dare to go! Sometimes it is with fear and trepidation that we go into a situation knowing what needs to be done but being fearful to be the one that speaks up!

To right…the unrightable wrong…When I read that line I think of someone who is trying to clean up a mess they have caused by opening their big mouth when they should have kept it shut! I did something yesterday that I almost regretted very much. I was trying to bring a group of people together by sending one message to them all asking for peace and goodwill, not thinking that anyone would actually respond, just read and think. One of them wrote and made some statements that incensed some of the group to wrath! I wanted to break my own fingers for thinking I had done a good thing! It’s better to think long and hard before you open mouth and insert foot!

To love…pure and chaste from afar…This is a very hard one to put into practice. People say the heart wants what it wants, but I say when it wants something that is going to cause someone else pain then it is very wrong, just walk away. There is nothing wrong with you feeling love it is putting it into action inappropriately that is wrong.

To try…when your arms are too weary...I think we can all identify with just being bone tired and sometimes I feel I have given everything inside of me to help a situation and then I am asked to do one more thing, so I am learning to say “my arms are too weary to tote that load today”. You have to know when you have gone the stretch to try as hard as you can and then give it up to God.

To reach…the unreachable star…That is the hope for everyone listening to the ramblings of this old girl. That star for me is named Hope, the hope that I can live in such a way as to make myself proud that I actually attained the Impossible Dream.

Reading the first line to each paragraph gives you the words to the most familiar verse of that beautiful song. Be inspired to get your dream out, dust it off and start all over again to dream the impossible dream!

In case you are wondering, after sweating bullets for a while, my faux pas worked out just fine!

About harolene

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!
