As I reflect upon my life and the many dreams which have been
fulfilled and those yet to be expressed, I am reminded to take
time each day to be in gratitude for all the blessings present.
Many of my dreams are a result of the contributions I have freely
given and received from others during the course of my life.
I believe dreams are the result of allowing ourselves the
permission to be happy, successful and loved. Our memories of the
past can impede us from experiencing life to its fullest. We can
place our attention on the lack or the abundance – it is solely
Certainly, there are situations in our lives which can be
difficult to release and forgive. Yet, there are also so many
amazing experiences to reflect upon and embrace. Does love lost
mean we are no longer entitled to be loved? Does hardship in the
past have to define us in the present? Does lost opportunity mean
there is no permission to reach out for a new dream?
Who gets to decide the dreams we can reach for? Are we waiting to
receive permission to create a new dream or are we ready to make a
stand for ourselves: “I have a dream!....”
I encourage you to take a few minutes each day to acknowledge the
happiness, success and love present in your life, to be grateful
for your life experiences which are the fabric of who you are now,
and to open your heart to new dreams
Give myself permission to create new dreams
Ask for guidance in accepting my good
Release the past and welcome forgiveness
And so it is.
