Unerversal theme: It's not a dream if you acomplish it
"Of Mice and Men"
"I tell ya a guy gets too lonely an' he gets sick."
This explanation helps us understand that it's mostly if someone is by themselves they get lonely, so they don't have the motivation to keep pushing. Steinbeck is showing how friendships and the love of others can help keep you motivated to keep trying. It's easier to keep pushing when someone is by your side helping.
"The Scarlet Ibis"
"I ran as fast as I could, leaving him far behind with a wall of rain dividing us. Soon I could hear his voice no more."
This gives an example of a choice he had made that changed his life. You choose the decision you make. You speak for yourself. One small decision can make a big impact on your life.
"Not a regular person" - A boogie
"I’m still working through all the disturbance"
This song lyrics gives us a description that no matter what tries to get in the way it's on you to push through. Through all the obstacles hard or easy to not give up. Everyone that's bringing you down you have to prove them wrong and get right back up. You have to preserve, no matter how tough it gets.
The 2016 election brought so much hatred towards each other. Most from discrimination. Discriminating from colors to gender to religion. They should not let this come in between their aspirations because they're different from others.
So what? Impact
Having dreams and aspirations can positively affect people's lives and relationships because it will help set goals to achieve something or at least survive through it. It can make a relationship more stronger. It's the moments like seeing a loved one proud as you achieve something. Or others looking up to you motivating them to follow their dreams. How much do you want it? Are you willing to take responsibility?
Having dreams and aspirations should be part of everyone life. It's the little things that motivates you to wake up and keep trying. Yes there will be moments where you feel like not trying, but once you reach your goal, all that work payed off. Giving up may seem like the best option at times, but if you work through those battles, your journey will be worth it.
There will be hurdles to jump and hits to dodge, but it's your responsibility to finish it and push through. If you keep trying you'll make it
As Dory once said "just keep swimming" words from me "just keep pushing".
