Lost Dreams

Your big opportunity may be right where you are now. Napoleon Hill

Nobody can escape the agonizing losses that are part of our everyday existence —the loss of our dreams.  We had thought so long of ourselves as successful, liked and  deeply loved.  We had hoped for a life of generosity, service and self-sacrifice.  We had planned to become forgiving, caring and always gentle people. We have a vision of ourselves as reconcilers and peacemakers. But somehow—we aren’t even sure what happened—we lost our dreams.  We became worrying, anxious people clinging to the few things we had collected and exchanging with one another news of political, social and ecclesiastical scandals of our day.  It is the loss of spirit that is often hardest to acknowledge and most difficult to confess.  ~ Author Unknown

  2. As Mark Kelly, astronaut husband of Gabby Giffords, said in an interview with Diane Sawyer, “Have too much hope? You can NEVER have too much hope.” I think hope and dreams go hand in hand.
