I'm grateful for dreams this morning. I'm grateful for the dreams I have while I sleep but more so for the dreams I have while I am awake. I'm grateful to look to my future and dream of the possibilities. I'm grateful to set goals for those dreams and pursue them to the best of my ability and when that ability falls short I am grateful for the people who come into my life that can guide me on my next steps. I'm grateful for people that step up and inspire the masses with positive and powerful messages like Ashton Kutcher's speech at the Teen Choice Awards. "I believe opportunity looks a lot like hard work." (I'm also grateful for his definition of sexy.) To achieve our dreams we have to be willing to take the steps to get there. Sometimes those steps mean leaving our comfort zone. Sometimes those steps mean extra hours or seeking out advice. But I do believe God, the Universe, Spirit (whatever you choose to call it) WANTS us to succeed; wants us to have our heart's desires. And so I am grateful this morning to do the work; to take the steps that are presented to me that I believe will take me from point A to point B. I'm grateful for this moment because I know it is unique. I will never be here again and that when my dreams are achieved I will look back and say thank you for each of these moments that got me to that point. What are your dreams? What were your dreams as a child? How have they changed and how can you move towards
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
