H.M.F.M. Chapter Five: “Crushed Dreams…..”
Mark Twain once said, “The two most important days of your life, are the moment you are born, and the moment you realize – why.” Eleanor Roosavelt once said, “The Future Belongs to Those Who Believe in The Beauty of Their Dreams.” There are countless scores of such pearls of wisdom to value and cherish, but there are also the less than glamour ous ones. ” Empty pockets never held anyone back, only empty heads and empty hearts can do that.” (Unknown).
Regretfully for me, my seventh grade teacher, “Mr. Robbins,” was an empty headed heartless man, and there is no more dangerous a place, to have your dreams crushed as a young innocent teen, with a head full of dreams only a kid could have – than the local public school classroom.
Perhaps you as a child, or teen, or adult had your dreams stolen, crushed, or wiped from your heart, but trust me, you can win them back.
“Permanence, perseverance and persistance, in spite of all things, determines the strong soul from the weak.” Sir Thomas Carlyle – Scottish Philosopher.
If if you care to share your losses or wins from your life with me, I’d love to hear from you.
Blessings, peace, and hope.
