Eleanor Roosevelt was an American politician, diplomat, and activist. She was the longest-serving First Lady of the United States, having held the post from March 1933 to April 1945 during her husband President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s four terms in office, and served as United States Delegate to the United Nations General Assembly from 1945 to 1952. President Harry S. Truman later called her the “First Lady of the World” in tribute to her human rights achievements. (Wikipedia)
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
~ Eleanor Roosevelt
Do you believe in the beauty of your dreams?
Anyone who creates has a dream before they create! And when you go forward with your ‘dream’ for the creation in your mind, you are starting the wheels of your future.
Whether you are creating a product, a piece of art, an article of prose or poetry …. you are investing in your future. Even if you never share your creation with a living soul, you are still creating something deep inside of you that will change you forever!
What are you dreaming about for 2017?
Keep dreaming …. you never know the impact that dream will have on who you will be tomorrow!
“In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.”
~ Eleanor Roosevelt
My grandmother once told me that old people become senile when they decide to quit learning. Although she has been gone for over 30 years, this concept is one of the things I remember most about her.
What does this have to do with Eleanor’s quote above?
I think that learning and growing go hand in hand. When we search for answers, we begin to learn the secrets of life — whether we go within or outside for the wisdom of of others. And when we take this search to heart, we begin to reshape our lives.
This is what my grandmother was trying to tell me: When we stop searching or stop learning, we stop growing. And when we stop growing, we lose who we truly are.
So, what are you learning today to shape your life for a better tomorrow?
