    Dreams Are Food For The Soul

    Dreams are food for the soul I believe - food for the heart and the soul along with music. They give you something to hold onto and something to look forward to when times are hard. It has been suggested that literally speaking - dreams are tune ups for the brain. But I am...

    It's Important

    I think, in this life, you gotta have something to hold on to, to keep you motivated and have something to look forward to each day. It's hard if you feel like, you're only doing things because you have to do them. It's not the nicest feeling in the world, and boy, it could...

    Dreams Are Special!

    Dreams are special. Dreams are basically dreams, for reality it's just like building castles in the air but they are just SPECIAL... When you are all alone, and feel completely ignored by the world and when you just feel like dying, the only hope you have is in your dream...

    The Watercolor Of Life

    Why not to paint the life in a cheerful and carefree way? One thing is for sure, the life only gains his proper brilliance if we allow to color our dreams. Nothing makes sense to be with people we like or in a place if we don't feel alive to enjoy the wonders of it. Our lives...

    Afterall

    What are we without our dreams.   Dreams keep us going from day to day in hope of that better tomorrow they keep us working for a better life for our families. So hold onto your dreams and keep at it, cause someday those dreams can become reality.

    It Doesn't Have to Be a Big Dream.....

    Sometimes just dreaming or wishing that tomorrow will be better than today is enough. I think dreams & wishes are what gives us hope. I've lived without dreams & hope. It was the darkest part of my existence & I don't ever want to feel that way again. So my dreams are...

    Never Let Go Of Your Dream

    "If you don't have a dream, how are you going to make a dream come true?" Oscar Hammerstein REALLY, how can we EVER expect to "see a dream come true" if we are too afraid to have one in our hearts? I am a FIRM believer that everyone DESERVES to have a dream and that by holding...

    Yes, it's true! It's a great way to blow off steam. It's a great way to interact with the opposite sex. And, it's made even funnier when done in very nice clothes.
