I've Been Thinking ...

Dream a dream of how you'd like the future to be. Visualise your desires as hard as you can. Have hope that things will go well.

But avoid building expectations around your dreams, your visualisations and your hopes.

Hopes and dreams drive us forward, give us reasons to smile in the darkest times, let us pick ourselves up when we fall and push on despite it all.

Expectations just set us up for disappointment.

Wishing you all the sweetest of dreams and the brightest of hopes,

I've learned to dream the dreams, hope the hopes...but to let go of the results.

Some times things work out in a way you never expect, and very often in a much better way than you could envision.

BB3 ... Exactly, ma'am ... you hit the nail right on the head.

EE ... Glad you think so

Georgia .. And thank you darlin'!

Helga ... Now that I do find sad, ma'am ... is there nothing to aim for, no peak you'd like to reach, nothing you want to get your hands on? Maybe you should take some time out to find a new dream or two? Certainly all the self-help books would suggest so. I'm loathe to refer you back to earlier posts of mine but ...

Where would we be without our dreams? Hopes are just that..hopes. If we dont place too much importance on them, and if they re realised, its a bonus.

There's a co-worker of mine who says, "Keep dreaming, it doesn't cost anything."

That's usually when we want to request something outside the budget.

And yes, BB3 that perspective will be something I will be thinking about the rest of the day, "let go of the results".
