Dreams

“Don’t be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality. If you can dream it, you can make it so.”

Belva Davis (1932 -)

Belva DavisEveryone should have dreams that are bigger than their life is on the surface? Everyone deserves to dream bigger dream than they could achieve.

Of all the people in the world I’ve met, those who dream big are the ones who are the happiest with their lives.

It doesn’t matter so much they haven’t fulfilled their dreams, it’s they actually have dreams that will sustain them in the most difficult times of their lives. When life becomes too challenging to bear, and it always will become so at some point, what makes you want to see the dawning of the new day?

We have but one life to live in this body and what we do with our lives is completely and only up to us.

Dreaming about the potential of a better life is what will separate those who get by and those who thrive and live their lives to it’s fullest potential.

You have the choice to determine what you are willing to put up with, and only you are capable of making  it happen or giving up and living your live in mediocraty.


Mothers of Influence

“Happy is the son whose faith in his mother remains unchallenged.”

Louisa May Alcott (1832 – 1888)

Louisa May AlcottMother’s are supposed to be the pillar of strength, the port in every storm and the focal point in every family.

But what happens when our mothers are less than what we need or expect? What happens to our expectations of what we could or should have?

My mother did not have a mother to nurture and guide her in becoming a woman and a mother. Her mother passed on when she was 15. But I truly believe she should have been able to absorb what she needed to know by then.

My mother was the complete opposite of what you would expect of a mother and want as a guide into womanhood. She left me isolated, confused and terrified of life in general.

But then, I began to reach out into the world and discover there were many people who were kind, generous and loving. They were the ones who shaped me into a kind loving person.

So just because our mothers or our parents in general can’t be what we need them to be, we can find solace in others who come into our lives and become more rich in the process.

In fact, it truly is the challenges in life that shape us into who we can become.
