Dreams: Reality has to start somewhere!
by Jeff Rogers

Dreams can be magical; they transform the ordinary into the great!
They begin with what we have now and new lives they help us create!

Dreams stimulate the imagination. They help keep us going strong.
They open up our creativity. They can even teach us right from wrong…

The dreams I have are a boost to me, they recharge me as I go.
They empower me to become even more. They help me to grow.

Dreams become a destination, they tell me where I’ll be.
If I move in that direction, that outcome I will see.

Dreams are transformational, they can change my life’s course.
All I really need to do is tap into the Source.

Dreams offer me motivation and help me keep my focus clear.
As long as I am focused on my dreams, I will persevere.

Even though I may adopt my dreams I know they are divinely inspired.
They are meant to keep me on my path so my life’s mission will be acquired.

Others may not relate to my dreams. Theirs are different than mine.
Missions are individual; they are assigned by the Divine.

My Mission is chosen just for me, the gifts I receive are specific.
As long as I do what I am sent here for, I continue to feel terrific.

Dreams help me to see what might be… they help open up a door.
They give me insight into my life. Their power I won’t ignore.

You have a purpose in your life. No one can take that away!
So take a moment to remember your dreams and start your tomorrow today!

Have a wonderful Holiday Season and an incredibly
healthy, prosperous, and happy New Year!
