Each of us nurture secret dreams and aspirations. The "what if", the "when everything else settles down", the when I have the money. And these dreams are good. They give us hope, energy, a place to escape, the power to visualize something other than our current choices. Our secret dreams sustain us and enrich our lives. Secret dreams and aspirations have a lifespan of their own. Over time, and without warning, the lack of action, the failure to take one step in their direction, the loss of faith to make them real, secret dreams and aspirations slip into missed opportunities. A dream that becomes regret is a heavy chain binding the spirit, always waiting at the edge of consciousness to wrap another length of chain around the heart. Nothing in life is beyond redemption. Not even regrets. And certainly not dreams. Giving voice to dreams is the first step. Let them out, let them roam. The confidence to express your dreams is a step toward making them real. Scary? You bet. Worth it? Absolutely. Be thankful for it. Be thankful that you had the ability to imagine, to hope and feel it in the first place. Reach back and find-it's still there-the joy it brought you. Dust it off, roll it around in your mind a little, let it out, and visualize what it could be, if you only take the chance.

"The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart" Helen Keller
