Be Careful of Dream Snuffers

"I have a dream...." 

such powerful words

It's the start of a journey
It's personal 
Vision is governed by your own convictions and passions.

When you have a dream...

beware of the one who would snuff it out!

Whether you have vision for a new business, a ministry that God has laid on your heart, your educational philosophy, or lifestyle choices - be careful of who you open up to, who you are vulnerable with.

Believe in what seems impossible

Today I want to say to you:
Dream big!  Dream in God!  Believe in Yourself! 


  1. Very wise! And it seems the larger he group (like a tableful of teachers in the lounge) the more likely the negative Nellies are to start mouthing... Avoid them!
    Thanks Mel!

  2. Really gud advice. Read this 12 years late. Life full of regrets now and am so unconfident now,

    1. But it's not over. Regrets can be soul destroying. Dream again! It's not too late! You may need to leave the old ones behind, but you're in a different space now. Different life. But it doesn't stop you from dreaming again.


Go ahead, leave a comment! I would love to hear from you!
