I noticed in the hardest moments, when all seems lost, that even then a prayer can be answered if we hold that hope a little longer till the trouble passes.
To give trust in God in those moments is the true test of our character, and of how far we've grown, even if there is a human imperfection in the nearness to failure.
If one holds onto dreams in even those tough moments and doesn't give up, then one is loving oneself enough to hold in there long enough for one to grow. In better times and worse doesn't just go for you and your loved ones, but also for loving one's self and what those bucket list dreams are. Those are the most important things and holding them dear is for a reason, and recognizing that reason is respecting the positive side of you even when the down side is feeling like it's caught up in the glitches of life's roller coaster ride.
So dream, and love yourself by never giving up on those dreams. Always.
I love my wife dearly, and I love my love of writing. I love my passions for beauty and for music. That is who I found out who I am. And that is what I dream of, and why I am here.
