Dare to Dream

Abraham Lincoln is a man who knows what he is talking about. If I could have someone at that imaginary dinner table he would totally be in the mix..

There was something very lovely about seeing my friend last night. The. Person who held my hand from afar in one of the most difficult and darkest moments of my life A moment when I was on the cusp of moving forward to happier times only to find myself crashing into hopelessness.

This beautiful and compassionate woman who I met when she quietly and with bravery threw her whole self into something she hoped would be special. Bringing everything she was, in all her beautiful vulnerabilities and fears only to be faced with with some people who lacked the qualities to do that very same thing. How easy it is to judge others when you don’t put yourself in it too.
How much I admired her resilience as I observed and felt her journey alongside my own.
The quietest voice in that room has become one the loudest for me in what it means to be kind, compassionate, brave, beautiful and genuine.
If I could wish anything for her, me, people I love and people I don’t it would be this..

“Dare to Be

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.

When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.

When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.

When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.

When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.

When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.

When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.

When times are tough, dare to be tougher.

When love hurts you, dare to love again.

When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.

When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.

When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.

When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.

When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.

When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.

Dare to be the best you can –

At all times, Dare to be!”

Abraham Lincoln
