This post was inspired from by @brandonwilson on his writing *Dream Big

Lately, I was catching up on some of a lot of animes that I've watched before but forget to watch again 'cause life happens and there are a lot of things going on in your life.

While catching up on some of the series, I remember on what Brandon wrote about Dream Big where he explains life become so mundane and all of those crazy things that we are dreaming have banished away and we tend to diverge our dreams base on realistic approach.

I was asking myself the same, on why life become so mundane that most of the time we live just to pay the bills. Why can't reality at least a little bit closer to the fantasy world? Like, let me go to some sort of adventure where I will be able to refine my skill so that I could slay some monster and dragon.

Or let me have a Master in different Martial arts so that I could fight and bit the bad guys.

Ohh, let me go to the top of the mountain to practice my survival skills with my sword to become an ultimate samurai.

I wonder what hero superpower that I will have if the genie granted me.

I still have in me the dream of becoming a monk to achieve enlightenment.

No wonder there are a lot of computer games that will help you to experience this fantasy world. That's the purpose of entertainment to provides a quick escape for reality.

You, what fantasy world would you like to enter and experience?

    @chrisdeuda I'm glad that post inspired you. I like the way you are thinking. I was thinking about your question about fantasy worlds. Isn't it interesting how most depictions of the future tend to be bleak or dystopian? I was trying to recall one depiction in a movie or book where the future really is ideal with no downsides. Maybe I have just consumed the wrong content. Have you noticed when you ask people what they would do if they win the lottery, they have no problem telling you their dreams and what they'd do. Yet, when you leave the lottery out of it so many people struggle to give you much of an answer. I think that is telling and a function of mindset and belief.

      @brandonwilson yeah agree, it always lean to the world of dystopian. I'm currently watching some anime that exactly goes back to the dark era of Samurai and War in Japan. So much poverty and a lot of people was starving. Most of the family are barely surviving. Though their situation was bad they always hope that it would get better sometime in the future. There is always a glimpse of hope

      I guess money was one of the factors people consider in order for them to pursue their dream. It was hard to dream big so much when you are barely surviving. And I realized pursuing dreams requires more than money such as time and effort and ability to endure pain in the long run while retaining the enthusiasm along the way.

      This comics really reminds me about dreaming and actually doing the work. https://zenpencils.com/comic/161-shonda-rhimes-a-screenwriters-advice/

      @chrisdeuda That's a great comic. Yes, you don't want to be someone who dreams endlessly without doing the work to make those dreams happen. You also don't want to be the person working day in and day out just to pay the bills without any dreams of your own.
