If you really believe, you could translate that invention into a marketable product or process, then you can consider patenting the invention. But before filing a patent for the same, conduct a search (advisable to take professional help from a patent agent/attorney) to determine whether the invention meets the patentability criteria. By conducting initial search, you can avoid considerable costs associated with patent filings & prosecutions, in case if it is determined that your invention does not meet the patentability criteria.
 
At this point, if you dont believe that you could translate your invention into marketable product or process, then you may consider dreaming again.
