What drives us? What makes us cry at the loss of a single opportunity we thought could’ve changed our world? What makes us smile, even laugh, at every step we take towards betterment? What makes us loose sleep and that too with giddy smiles?
(Not talking about the nights we’ve stayed up to cram for semester papers, even those if you count rationally.)
Give it a thought: What was more heart-wrenching, breaking-up with the one you thought of as a soulmate, or the slight idea that crept into your mind around midnight, that there might be a chance you won’t make the cut to the college you knew would get you places? Pretty obvious.
Dreams fuel us, sometimes too much. Life goals, as the cooler ones put it. Hard to realize, seem harder when chased. Still, there are few things which could really stop us from doing so.
Why? Because most of us had the basic platter served right, shelter, clothes, 2 square meals a day, people who love us, people we love back, simple things as such. They’ve had a bigger role to play than the hard work we’ve put in.
Think about those who try to make it without these things we’ve taken for granted.

Recognizing, supporting and helping them is the least we can do. Let’s hope for dreams, ours and theirs and everyone else’s to come true.
