DREAMS3“It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old; they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.” ~ Gabriel García Márquez. Don’t allow your dream to die. It’s so easy to place your dreams on the back burner – especially when life presents challenges and distractions. Fulfilling one’s dream is not easy. It often means late nights because if the dream is given attention at all, it’s often at the end of the day when everything that we’ve deemed to be more important than our dream has taken place. The dream is addressed when the body and mind are fatigued with all of the daily activities. But, I have found that when I’m giving attention to my passion, my mind, body, and spirit are rejuvenated. I’m pumped with energy and my mind is overflowing with ideas and enthusiasm. Everything may not be in place to allow me to live my dream. But, dreams are realized one step at a time. Today I’m closer to realizing my dream than I was yesterday. And therein lies my joy.
