Here at Words of Encouragement…
**NOVEMBER MEANS: GRATITUDE CHALLENGE!!**
I am thankful for hopes and dreams, and the purpose and enjoyment they add to our lives. Without hopes and dreams, life would be rather dull and static. Hopes and dreams add that sense of wonder, anticipation, and vibrancy, as well as the excitement and pleasure when fulfillment or manifestation of those hopes and dreams takes place. Of course, arriving at that point requires some action on our parts. We can’t just sit around doing nothing, or worse, becoming discouraged or complaining about NOT seeing our hopes and dreams fulfilled.
Here’s your actionable inspiration for this first Friday in November…
“Dreams are critical. They light up life.
Without them, we become bored,
and tired, and apathetic.
So, take this opportunity
to really clarify your dreams.
Take a pen and paper and spend an hour
figuring out what you really dream about.
But whatever you do,
make sure you have a dream.
They’re incredibly important.
Dreams are the spark plugs of the spirit.
Make sure yours are ready for action.”
–Karl Moore – Rule #12 in “18 Rules of Happiness“
I know I’ve got goals and dreams for the future, but I do need to clarify them and write them down as visible reminders to keep in front of me. I also need to be more proactive about taking steps toward fulfillment of those dreams. I especially like this statement: “Dreams are the spark plugs of the spirit. Make sure yours are ready for action.”
So what are YOUR thoughts?
Do you have hopes and dreams for the future?
What are you doing to make your hopes and dreams manifest?
