And then, suddenly, her dream changed

Daily Post: Better
I'm part of Post A Day 2017

I was in a dark depression when I wrote this découpé poem back in 2014: it felt nice to edit it today and make it a little bit better.

At the time I didn’t feel any sense of hope, and it wasn’t written as a celebration of a new dream, but rather the hope that I could find one. And I did.

In some ways I am experiencing that change in my dream right now. And one important thing I learned during this past 2.5 years: your mind will tell you strange things when you are depressed but don’t listen to it. It will lie.

All my love.

  1. The most beautiful celebration for your dream is that! You put in right words a human experience of hope. Happy too, to read that your dream is found. Like the song says: Climb every mountain, follow every strem, follow every rainbow till you find your dream.
