As kids we have a pure innocence that knows no boundaries and our dreams are as large and as magnanimous as our imagination can take us. As we grow older and experience life more, we become jaded and lose that virtue, become cynical, and our dreams are not as vivid as they once were. I am so THANKFUL that the world does not dictate the outcome of our dreams and if we are courageous enough to forge ahead in spite of all or any obstacles, our dreams can still come true.
I am very THANKFUL that dreams never die. They may become dormant or even forgotten, and in worse cases, given up on, but that precious dream still lies within and is just waiting to be stirred up, shaken awake, and pursued again. Life will take you on many twists and turns, derailing your thoughts, detouring your focus, and dividing your time, but is it not amazing how one glimmer of hope, one leap of faith, can redirect you and put you right on course to achieving your deepest desires and wildest dreams!
What is a real miracle is how even when you may quit on your dream, it never quit on you and when least expected, that dream that you no longer thought of, considered a possibility, or even fathom any longer has now come to fruition. THANKFUL for dreams beyond reality and greater than doubt and fear. THANKFUL for the little kid in me who still remembers that anything I believe, if I so desire and am willing to put in the work, I can achieve it!
THANKFUL that dreams are windows to our heart’s desires, our mind’s infatuations, and our soul’s purpose-filled destiny. THANKFUL that our greatest dreams somehow formulate a blueprint and road that lead to our greatest joy. Dream on my friend…
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” ~ Harriet Tubman
“Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.” ~ Langston Hughes
I am so THANKFUL for the power within, the power to reach deep and manifest the energy, the strength, and the courage to continue and to overcome. I am so THANKFUL for He that is in me that enables, encourages, and enlightens me to become all that I can possibly become and more than I ever imagined. We all possess this power, this innate trait. It’s literally in the palm of our hands, the recess of our minds, and the pits of our spirit. It’s simply a matter of bringing it to the forefront. It’s about not having to summon it only in times of need, but living in that place continually, always exhibiting the abilities that have been birthed in you. It’s about living the dream and not always chasing it and making the most of everyday, because you are truly THANKFUL for every part of your life. It’s a mindset and a purposeful walk, knowing who you are and all you are capable of. You are more powerful than you ever imagined and although you may not be able to leap tall buildings, run faster than a speeding bullet, or have x-ray vision, you are SUPER! Be THANKFUL for the gifts you do have and don’t be afraid to share them with the world.Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. ~ Harriet Tubman To dream anything that you want to dream. That’s the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do. That is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself to test your limits. That is the courage to succeed. ~ Bernard Edmonds
