With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts. Eleanor Roosevelt
Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. Harriet Tubman
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will. Mahatma Gandhi
Easy enough to say to someone, “be strong. Be determined.” The problem with this pat answer is that there is no way to give book instructions to give someone strength. There are rituals, meditations, tools to use yet in the end, our task is to dig deep within ourselves to find inner strength and power. When thinking of strength, we often take our minds back to Great men and women who went through dark and troubled times only to get to the other side in differences for not only the person but also most times changing the ways of the society, giving to others as well. When we are strong, we are influencing others along the way as well. Each new day brings a new idea, a new thought that can change circumstances, change the way of the world for others as well as ourselves. We are not alone, No man is an island unto himself, ( John Donne 1624). We are all important to the universe, to others around us. Be our dream. Be our hope. Be our strength.

Boy, yesterday was a bear. Losing a whole document, unable to get into some information needed, dropping a glass breaking all over the floor, ugh!!! What else could go wrong. Well, actually quite a bit we are sure, but we stopped, took some deep breaths, did 5 sun salutations and 5 down dog, then 3 planks of Yoga, smudged the whole house with sage, and ourselves, then slowly, oh so slowly, started over. Sometimes we get so busy, so rushed, we get scattered, disorganized, crazed, even panicky. Time to stop, wait, better to do it right then halfway, and have to do over. Steps to change the chaos: 1. Stop. Stand still for count of 25 seconds. Mississippi 1, Mississippi 2…. 2. Take 10-15 long deep breaths, breathing in count of 8, blowing out count of 8. 3. Stretch, walk, do something physical but not overly aerobic, calming the heart rate rather than excelerate. 4. Ask the Divine to come in. 5. Dream and start again at a slower pace. Then Dream on , Dream Big Dream

Sometimes when I was younger, I imagined I had been adopted. It seemed that somehow I didn’t quite seem to fit in with family I was born into life. I was considered the “free spirit” which honestly meant I was willful, stubborn and often times doing what I thought was right instead of what might have been socially correct. Yet my parents embraced my differences, encouraging the things I was good at rather than try to push me too hard into things that held no interests. When we become into other’s lives, we need to see their differences, treat them with respect, doesn’t mean we always have to agree but it does mean we need to love them. Simply love them and allow them too to dream. Dream on, Dream big, Dream
