    There Is A Young Lady That Needs To Be Treated Right

    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...

    It's What's Keeps Us Going!

    I think every person should have some dream or goal in life. Even if it's far-fetched or may never happen, it is important to keep dreaming and reaching for those stars! :-D I do have a long-term goal of falling in love, getting married, and having children. It may never happen...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    An old lecturer once said,

    "if you aim for the sky, you might hit the ceiling". I'm a firm believer that if you try hard enough, physically anything is possible. You've just got to believe in this and yourself and, go for it!!

    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.

    Dreams motivate us to achieve goals.

    They give us something to look forward to in life. Without them we are just slowly dying. Dreams are the lights of our lives. When our dreams end, or we fail the light in our hearts and lives dies.
