“Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.”

~Langston Hughes

“Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.” ~Anaïs Nin

“Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true.”

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined.”

~Henry David Thoreau

“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.”

~Louisa May Alcott

“Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream.”

~Lao Tzu

Path of Healing

path of healing

Being forthright is a two way street

While questions of integrity rise up

In a fog of confusion and doubt

Unspoken accusations

Bathed in superiority

And dressed in superficiality

Join together with unclear intentions

To cross boundaries that still

Disregard a ‘no trespassing’ sign 

Opinions disguised as truth

Leave a void of pain

And misunderstanding

An absence of compassion

As for me I choose to continue

Down the path of healing

To connect with my essence

In acceptance and surrender.
