“Go Confidently In The Direction Of Your Dreams” — Henry David Thoreau

With the pressures of daily life, do any of us really have time to think about our dreams? Do we even know what our dreams are? Kids know what their dreams are, just ask them…What do you want to be when you grow up? It is always such and easy answer for them. But once we do grow up, then what? Is is too late for us?

What if we never realized, that we might have been forgetting to follow our dreams? Worse than that, what if we thought we were following our dreams, but it turned out that we were living a nightmare? Then what? Is it too late? Do we get a second chance at our dreams?

When is it too late to follow your dreams? I would like to believe the answer to that question is never. I think our dreams are ever changing, and ever evolving, just as our lives are. I think that it’s o.k. not to be exactly sure what our dreams are, and it’s also o.k. if our dreams change from time to time. The only thing that is not o.k., is to give-up on our dreams. Because, once you give-up your dreams, you lose hope for your future.

But why then, do so many people give-up or deny their dreams? That is an easy one to answer…..They give up because they are afraid, afraid of failure. Fear is what stops us from following our dreams. Fear is the darkness that casts a shadow over our light. And, fear is what we need to overcome if we want to reach for our dreams.

The most important thing to remember…Is to never let go of your hopes and dreams, even when you are not sure what they are. So, take some time to figure out what your greatest dreams are for your life, and then walk confidently towards them, without fear.

    What people should learn early in life is that if the dream is important enough then it should be set up as an aim or goal. Next, plan a series of objectives that lead toward that goal and make sure you can attain each one. This is a process that should go on for a lifetime. The ultimate goal should sound something like this: Thus through the years, seein and feeling and knowing goes man, ’til at last, tired of experience, he turns to the goodly and friendly breast of the Old Nurse, Death. Catherine, keep on thinking. You’re doing great.

  6. Hi Catherine! Nice to meet you! I can’t help but add.. one might want to engage in a little thing called prayer! It can’t hurt! I like the thought…it’s not failure we most fear but rather, success! It’s our light that scares us, not our darkness! Something to consider! Btw, I’ve recently realized a childhood dream, and I’m not exactly a spring chicken …. as we age, we can hone our talents but of course, talent is never enough!

    I’d like to start my own blog…but it is interesting to read yours!!! it’s been great exploring your site today! Thanks…from a fellow “overcomer”! 🙂
