The Beauty Of Dreams

So how do you give someone a piece of sky? Dreams never end just because your life turned upside down all of a sudden. Dreams never end just because something unexpected touched you and you felt the pain.  Dreams never end just because a few friends turned their backs on you when you needed them most.  The unfairness seemed magnified at some point in your life but then you realized  how lucky you are to still be alive and enjoying another sunny morning, enjoying a few moments of peace just looking at the sunset, dreaming maybe of someone giving you a piece of sky.

I realized that in life, there are more things to be thankful for than to complain about.  There are more things that make  you happy than  things that make you sad and lonely. The  trick is to open your eyes to the beauty of everything around you.  My illness taught me many things. Everyday is  something special, you have to embrace it as if it were the last day of your life.  The journey may not be as smooth as you want it to be, but it is in the struggles which make you stronger than most, being able to face another day with a wide grin and a grateful thanks that you survived the hurdles along life’s way.

Life is good. Believe in the beauty of your dreams.

  3. I love your ‘favourite nook!’ It looks so lush and tropical, so different from the plants and foliage here. Enjoy your reflecting there, Arlene.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Wonderful words and thoughts, Arlene. I agree, there is a lot more to be grateful for, than things of which to complain about. Getting sick sometimes make these things more evident.
