Sometimes we wish for an ability or a skill we do not have and that is completely out of our reach or capability to reach. It is just not possible for the human body to breathe under water unaided or to fly unaided as much as we wish and dream they may be. Thus it can be destructive for us to try to reach such unrealistic goals, at the very least it can lead to despair and a negative feeling about one’s authentic capabilities. When we continue to crave an ability that we know is an impossibility we are also ignoring and denying the capabilities we do have. If we deny these capabilities we are denying others out best attributes and more significantly we are denying ourselves esteem, pride in our accomplishments, and the benefits that come with efforts directed in a realistic direction. Of course it can be fun to dream of being capable of impossible things, but we also must be able to wistfully smile and move on to something more in line with our reasonable goals and aspirations. It can be fun to share impossible dreams with others and listen to theirs; the support found just by sharing and knowing that everyone has something they wish they were capable of and can never be can make reality much more attractive. It’s better to take advantage of your own capabilities than to dream of impossibilities, isn’t it?
