Do you still have dreams? Or are your dreams long-buried somewhere because you don't believe in having dreams anymore?
Or are you too caught up with life to think about your dreams?
I remember someone once mentioned that if we don't know what our dreams are, then how do we know we've reached them when we did? Isn't that an awakening statement?
Like they said, we'll only pass by this life only once, so let's dig out your long forgotten dreams and make a leap for them.
Here's some ideas to help you along in scrapping about your dreams.
One ought every day at least to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.
