Don’t Stop Dreaming

Don’t Stop Dreaming….

As a young child, we dreamed many
different things. I am sure some of it had to do with being superheroes, or
being bigger than life in some way.

As we grow into adulthood, those
dreams change. Sometimes, we are told that are dreams will not come true so we
should just get our head out of the clouds. That is pretty depressing, but it
is not uncommon.  Should we just pack it
in and stop dreaming? No, I do not think so. Why should we dream, anyway?

-We dream of perhaps having a
better life for our family

-We dream of being debt free and
taking a vacation that won’t break the bank

-We dream of sending our kids to
college and not having to pay for it until we retire

-We dream of being able to give our
son/daughter a nice wedding

-We dream of many things that we
may think are unreachable

The truth is, they are not
unreachable. You just have to put your mind in gear and figure out how you are
going to achieve this dream.  My daughter
is attending high school in the fall. She will be in the band and they are
going to attend the Tournament of Roses Parade.
She is saving money for this trip. I did not ask her to, but she wants
to chip in. I have just signed up as well. I have never been to California, and
this is an amazing opportunity. My dream is not only for me to go, but my
family as well. I know that I will have to work hard, but I am ready to do
it.

If our dreams are important enough
for us, we will figure out a way to make them come true. Some things are hard
to make happen.  I feel that when we work
hard for these dreams, they are much more meaningful to the dreamer.

Dream Big, Dream small:    Whatever you decide, Don’t Stop Dreaming…

Below is a little poem that I came across.  I fell in love with it because of the truth that it holds and what we all strive for.  I really hope you enjoy it as much as I did.  The author is unknown, sorry.

IT ALL STARTS WITH YOU!

BELIEVE IN YOUR DREAMS
BELIEVE IN TODAY
BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE LOVED
BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
BELIEVE WHEN OTHERS MIGHT NOT
BELIEVE THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
BELIEVE THAT THE BEST IS YET TO COME
BELIEVE IN YOUR SELF

IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE YOU WILL NEVER CHANGE
