don't lose the fire

"do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all.  do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach.  the world you desire can be won.  it exists, it's real, it's possible, it's yours."  ayn rand

"never give up on what you really want to do.  the person with big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts."  albert einstein

lately, i've been talking with many of my friends about purpose, and the meaning of life. we have also been discussing that always present elephant in the room - are we accomplishing the dreams that were placed in our heart from birth?  

what is our purpose?  what counts when you come to the end of life?  are you going to die with wonderful memories of accomplishments or the bitterness of unfulfilled dreams?  we all need to evaluate what we are doing and take appropriate action.  

don't let the dream in your soul perish.  the dream that resides there is precious and was given to you by the Life-Giver.
