“Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.”
Dale E. Turner
I love this quote sooo much. It was the status on one of my friends’ Facebook profile. With permission (from her, not Dale E Turner), I am making it my topic for today.
This quote signifies hope, faith in the future, and faith in the possibilities that abound all around us. Everything may have gone wrong, everything may be going wrong even now and yet… Yet there is hope.
There have been times when I have felt that dreaming was for the unrealistic. I felt like I was the only practical one around and so I had to give up on the dream and just live in the now, in whatever life had to offer me right here, right now. I just had to make the most of it. Almost as if I had no control over it, no say about what I let happen to me. There is no doubt that there are things I cannot control, but there are definitely things I can control, there are things I can change. For one, my reaction to said events is definitely within my control – do I surrender and get depressed and resigned or do I keep pushing forward to see if there is another way around what looks like certain defeat? Do I give into the thoughts that threaten to overwhelm me or do I refuse to lie down and let it happen?
Anyway, that was a part of my past (or at least I hope it is… Oh yeah, I was saying I have control 😀 – Lets change that to “I KNOW it is a part of my past”)
Dreams ARE renewable – Everyday, I can start again. It reminds me of a song we used to sing at church.
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases
His mercies never come to an end
They are new every morning
Today is a chance to dream again. Maybe things did not go according to plan yesterday or the fear overwhelmed me, I am going to try again today. I am going to wake up, say a little prayer, (or you can call on the universe or whatever you like to do) and dare again to dream.
Since starting this journey, opportunities have presented themselves to me that I would not have been aware of before. People I know now that I did not know existed before. It is almost like a veil has been lifted because I am daring to try. Another world starts to open up as you begin dreaming. There is abundance everywhere if we have the courage to step out and take it.
Okay so I am not where I want to be yet, but I am slowly but surely – as long as I continue to dream and never surrender to the fear – getting there. Without dreams, we die. Never stop believing, never stop dreaming.
So, ladies! (I imagine most readers are female) what do you dream of? It would be lovely to hear some of your dreams, tell me if you want them kept private. Let’s go on this journey together.
