To awaken a dream takes courage.  To pursue that dream is a warriors quest.  There is the excitement of the challenge and the reality of the risk and sacrifice.  If one can run the gauntlet successfully, the rewards are great, and if not, the romance of the dream can fade to harsh sacrifice, like Icarus falling from the skies on melted wings.  I would choose to accept the challenge and the risk with wisdom and balance.  Dreams are the fabric of life, and considering the brevity of our time on this planet, abandoning that is the greatest risk of all.
