We All Must Have Dreams

There was a study done, a hospital study on 100 elderly people facing death, close to their last breath. They were asked to reflect about their life’s biggest regret. Nearly all of them said it was not the things that they did, but the things they didn’t do, the risks they never took, the dream they didn’t pursue. Will your last words be this? ~ Prince Ea



It is right now that we must wake up and follow our dreams. If you don’t have a bucket list, you have nothing. I used to not dream. I had no dreams. I was forced by my environment to push any of those thoughts out of my head because “daily survival” continuously consumed me. I am a survivor of domestic violence.

I can’t dwell on the past, or I will not be able to dream effectually and have a fulfilling life.
