“But he who dares not grasp the thorn
Should never crave the rose.”
~ Anne Bronte ~

When you are not willing to take a chance and venture into the darkness to make your dreams come true, then why do you even have a dream?

Dreams only come true when you are willing to work toward making changes in your life to bring the dreams to fruition.

If you want to reach your dream or goal, you have to be willing to sacrifice for it.

sacrifice: an act of giving up something valued for the sake of something else regarded as more important or worthy.

Is your dream or goal valued as more important or more worthy than what you already have now?
Is your dream or goal something that will bring you happiness for many years?
Is your dream or goal worth the sacrifice that you are willing to make for it?

When you can answer those questions affirmatively, then your dream or goal can become a reality.

A dream is a wish your heart makes when you are fast asleep. We all have to wake up but we can keep Hope and Faith as our constant companions and then our dreams can come true
