\ ˈdrēm \
noun, often attributive
a cherished aspiration, ambition, or ideal.
I was not always a dreamer even though I believe everyone has the capacity to dream. I lacked the ability to see beyond the confines of my reality, and I resigned to a life of mediocrity as I struggled to attain my desired high expectations. When I discovered my voice, I realized that I had something to say, and gained the confidence to speak while people stopped to tune in and listen. This experience initiated the desire and pursuit of my dreams.
What if I told you that the situations in life that caused you to stop dreaming are the very fuel you need to dream again?
