BrotherWord - Dreams Come True

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

Ask BrotherWord – Patience Running Thin

#AskBrotherword - Patience Running Thin

Dear BrotherWord,

I’ve been actively pursuing this lady for almost 4 months now.  I think she possesses a lot of what I’m looking for in a woman and a future, but our schedules have yet to align.  The only time we speak, which is mainly by text, is only when I reach out and every time I ask why we haven’t gone out or spent time, she says she’s busy.  I can read in between the lines and take subtle hints so I plainly asked her if she wasn’t interested because I don’t want to waste her time or mine.  She was adamant that wasn’t the case and it’s not that she isn’t interested, but her schedule and life are crazy and hectic right now and she doesn’t want to start anything she can’t put her all in.  Although I can respect the honesty, I’m really wondering if it was a polite way of saying, go away.  What should I do? 

Sincerely, 

Patience Running Thin
