What Dreams May Come

In my thoughts I very often come back to one topic...
It's about the goals we set in life. We all have our dreams and aspirations, but also we try to live up to expectations of others. So it is a big conflict - living up to someone's expectations very often interferes with things we really want to do or achieve, things we quite often dream about. Has it ever happened to you?
What if we leave everything behind and follow a DREAM? Is it too childish or too egoistic maybe? Is the final goal worth making a sacrifice this big? Does leaving all behind mean one is strong? Or is it on the contrary a weakness - the ability to make sacrifices for others being a strength?
As we get older we limit ourselves to certain things within our comfort zone, we conform with our reality and we stop striving for more, or even thinking what we'd really like to be in this life. We are too 'experienced' for believing there are no limits, that we can climb Mount Everest, that WE CAN CONQUER THE WORLD...
This is sad, isn't it? Are we too afraid of making mistakes? But without them what would shape our lives? When we are children all our life's about the pursuit of fun... But then we grow up and learn to be cautious... So when has it stopped being fun and started being scary..?
