Dreams deferred amount to a sheer waste of talent

I read this today in the Weekend Herald - one of the best opinion pieces I have read for a long time, and I think well worth passing on, for motivation/inspiration as much as anything...

But what about the wife's dream?

For 38 years, I, too sanctioned a man's dream. I'm not saying I didn't enjoy the ride.... of course I did! But my dreams somehow got lost along the way. It was not until after my beloved husband died that I even THOUGHT about my own dreams, and it took about 8 years to find out what they were!

Now, I'm a moderately successful (locally, anyway) artist, 13 years on. I make just enough to live on, but I need another life to explore the artistic ideas I have! Richard Ford is right.... sanctioning someone else's dream costs your life!

Good point, Ypuk...I suppose we read it from our own context. In my case, I've been lucky enough to have a hubby who has supported my dreams and vice versa. It doesn't have to be a either or situation, but as you say, sometimes unfortunately it ends up that way.

The bigger point I was wanting to emphasise is that folk should follow their dreams. But as you say, it can't be at the expense of someone else.
