You start out in this life
with hopes
and dreams
   and ambitions.

   But sometimes unexpected things happen
   and your dreams seem to become
           impossible to achieve . . .
                   like they have ended;
                   . . . over with
                           . . . gone.

   You become hopeless and desperate . . .

           Don’t stop
           Dreaming
   Your dreams.

                           When you have a dream
                           and are committed to achieving it,
                           your life takes a new meaning.
                           You Have A Purpose In Life.

                                   Dreams keep your life going
                           and revolving,
                   it’s a challenge that keeps you achieving,

                   If you stop dreaming your dreams
           your life has reached its end. [1]


   Dreams are a big part of our Lives and
   you must do whatever it takes
to make them a
Reality;
by the plans you make,
the course you take,
and the things you do.

Don't dwell on past mistakes.
Leave yesterday behind,
along with all it's problems,
worries and doubts.

Perhaps you didn’t realize
   you had the storybook
   thing you dreamed about. . .
           and it slipped away. . .

           Realize you can't
           change the past,
                   but you can start
                   a new tomorrow.

                   Dreams never go away;
                   they don’t stop.
                           They don’t end. . . .
                           they get put on hold . . . .
                                   shelved . . . .
                                   stored . . .
                                           waiting . . .

                                           Sometimes
                                           almost
                                           forgotten . . . .

                                           But they are always there . . . .
                                           ready . . . . .
                                                   to be resumed . . . .
                                                           anytime . . . .

                                                                   A dream can be
                                                           restarted
                                                   toward a new outcome . . .
                                           any time . . .

           But like a garden that needs weeding
              and watering and constant work,
So too with the realities of the dreams that come true.

                   They do not simply continue
           on their own
   as if by magic;
they take effort.

Whether they are resumed or not
is entirely up to you . . . .
   not to anyone,
           or anything else . . . .

           That decision; that choice is
              only for
you to make . . .

           only you can make it happen . . .
                        no one else . . .
               it isn’t theirs to make . . .
             it’s yours . . .

Dreams . . .
and storybook lives and endings
don’t just happen by waiting . . .
they are worked towards
through preparing the setting
   and mindset . . .

   they must be wanted . . .
   tasted . . .
           visualized . . .
                   persued . . .

                   Don't try to do
                   everything at once;
                           take one step at a time . . .

                   Don't ever be afraid
           to try the
Impossible
   no matter what
others may think,
or say.

           Remember you are Unique
                   in your own special way.

                   Don't ever stop
Dreaming!
                           Don't ever stop wanting
                                   what's right for you!
[2]


                                   Don't ever be reluctant
                                   to show your feelings;
                                           when you're happy;
                                                   give in to it.

                                                           When you’re sad;
                                                           accept it . . .
                                                                   and do something about it.

                                                                   Don't ever be afraid
                                                           to try to make things better;
                                                   you will be surprised at the results.

                                   Don't ever take the weight of the world
                           on your shoulders,

   Don't ever feel threatened by the future.

Take life
One day . . .
One hour . . .
  One minute . . .
          One step . . .
                  at a time.

                   Don't be consumed by guilt about the past;
                   what's done was done.

                   Learn
                                   from those mistakes you may have made.

                           Don't ever feel that you are alone;
                           there is always somebody there
                           for you
                                   to reach out to . . .

                   Don't ever forget that you can achieve
                      so many of things you can imagine . . . .
                           It's not as hard as it seems.

                   Don't ever stop loving
           don't ever stop believing,
   don't ever stop dreaming your dream. [3]


                                           If your dream was interrupted . . .
                                   restart, or kick-start it
                           right now . . .
                   don’t wait another minute.

                   Simply . . .
           admit and accept your mistakes . . . .
   and those of others . . .
that caused the delay. . . .

forgive . . .
yourself, and them.

Make amends . . .
make a resolution . . .
   make a commitment  . . .
           and . . .

           Resume your dream . . .

           Don't live with regrets. . .
                   Follow your dream . . .
                   Live your dream . . .
                           Be your dream . . .

                   Don’t live in a nightmare . . .
                           or a vacuum . . .
If you waste your days with your tongue silent,
You'll never know what it's like to talk.


If you keep your heart behind a wall,
You'll never know what it's like to love.


If you spend your life on the edge of the cliff,
You'll never know what it's like to fly.

All our dreams,
All our hopes,
All our aspirations,

They all add up to equal one thing;

Our life.
Without them,
Life isn't what it was meant to be.
