Forgotten Dreams

Ester asked,  “Why are people so sad?”

“That’s simple,” says the old man.  “They are the prisoners of their personal history.  Everyone believes that the main aim in life is to follow a plan.  They never ask if that plan is theirs or if it was created by another person.  They accumulate experiences, memories, things, other people’s ideas, and it is more than they can possibly cope with.  And that is why they forget their dreams.”

— Paulo Coelho, The Zahir

20160228_184507.jpgI’m so happy I listened to Trish and that she listened to me about our dreams.  We had other people try to discourage us, or try to convince us that what we are doing was silly (stupid).

We are learning to trust ourselves and to live our dreams.
