I have dreams I hope will come true, and others that I I've given up on. Maybe I dreamt once about living in a fabulous home with a swimming pool, or having an partner who would love and adore me, or a life filled with excitement, opportunity, and wonder.

There is nothing wrong with dreams. They help me set goals, and touch a truth in my heart that life is meant to bring happiness. Even when a dream seems no longer reachable, I can set new goals, and draw on the energy they give me. But maybe I've had my dreams shattered in a relationship before, or I'm looking at the one I have now, and feeling disappointed over dreams that are slipping out of my grasp.

When I look at what I want however, I find that almost all of my dreams center around one theme - happiness. If my dreams can get shattered or lost, maybe I am making my happiness depend on the wrong things. Perhaps the route to happiness doesn't lie in the direction I thought it did. Could it be that I missed one of the sure routes - one called acceptance and love, starting with accepting and loving myself?

Just for Today

Today I'll stop looking for happiness in things that may or may or may not come true, and start searching for it in another direction - by loving and accepting myself and others more. In doing this, the dream of happiness and love can truly be mine - a little bit more each day.

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them. - Henry David Thoreau
