To you with broken dreams…

Dear You-

Our dreams propel us forward in life, but when they somehow become unattainable, it can crush us. Broken dreams are nothing to be ashamed of. We must not punish ourselves when we can’t have things our way.

Be kind and gentle to yourself. Embrace your sorrow, but know that it will give way to hope if you let it. May your old dreams give way to new dreams that are no less wonderful. May you find immense beauty and fulfillment from unexpected sources. Great things can come to us in ways we couldn’t possibly dream of and can more than make up for wishes that couldn’t be realized.

Beyond all else, don’t forget to believe in and celebrate yourself. You are powerful, brave, and capable even in moments when you don’t feel that way. You are a treasure in this world because of who you are and what you mean to others. All that is great about you will always shine through no matter the obstacles you face and that is the beauty that you bring to existence.

– From Me

Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.
