Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "I have a dream..." and then he lived it. We all have dreams. For reasons we feel we cannot overcome, few of us live them.
However, and this is a good thing for all of us, there are some of us who never lose sight of their dreams. No matter how convincing the reasons are for them to hang up their dreams, they hang onto them instead. And then one day, they stand up and move away from mediocrity, toward their dream.
David Thoreau expressed that moment in these well known words: "...if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours..."
To Thoreau's words, I would add: "And without intending to, he will lift all those around him and give them new power to once again advance toward their dream."
This is what that actually looks like:
