No dream comes true until you wake up and go to work.

 The painful truth of the matter. Ask yourself which is MORE painful, never giving your dreams a chance to come true or getting busy, busy, busy?

Silver Linings.....

Series 0004 Valley of Fire Part 1

As I child I spent hours laying in the grass looking at the clouds. Daydreaming and trying to find as many shapes as I could. I’m sure many of you did the same. Then somehow we grow up and forget. The only time we might take time is when there is a truly spectacular sunset or a chillingly beautiful lightning storm. 
You remember finding a unicorn, looking at another cloud and when you went back to the unicorn it had transformed into a mighty fire breathing dragon. I believe that our dreams are like the clouds. Not our sleeping dreams but our life dreams. Our dreams of the goals we have set, the people we want to be, the achievements we want to make, the aspirations we have, the secret inspirations and passions of our hearts.
Clouds and dreams are both are big and impressive, seeming so very far out of our reach. They are beautiful, majestic and constantly changing and taking new forms. They may change from a leaping deer into a valiant warrior, they may start as soft and wispy then become billowy and puffy, they may be a brilliant crisp white and then suddenly add colors of fantastic pinks, purples and oranges. They might not look like much of anything at all and in a moment they are a flying superhero. Sometimes the sky is completely clear without a cloud in sight. Do not fear they will blow in when the time is right.

The clouds and our life dreams both may change and transform and seem to endlessly evolve. They may be different than we ever imagined but they are just as beautiful.
