Fear, doubt, faith, marriage, dreams

My new favorite quote: on overcoming obstacles to achieving your dreams

Fear, doubt, faith, marriage, dreams

The leap of faith necessary to conquer fear and doubt and achieve your dreams.

You may be seeking a soulmate, but what about your dreams for yourself as a person – your spiritual, emotional, professional, pie-in-the-sky dreams?

Finding a lasting relationship is a life goal for many people. Once you read Harry Hudson’s story, you might broaden your perspective about “marriage”.

I first read about Harry on Viral Nova. His story touched me, as it undoubtedly has touched many other people. Diagnosed with curable leukemia at a young age, at the dawn of his musical career, Harry documented the progress of his treatment and recovery. He demonstrates that a positive attitude and sense of gratitude can go a long way.

There are many wonderful “tweets” shared in the Viral Nova story, but one of them stood out:

“I cheated on my fears, broke up with my doubts, got engaged to my faith, and now I’m marrying my dreams.

Wow. That is a goal to which we can all aspire.

To put the cherry on top, this quote was posted on my 60th birthday, November 29, 2013. For some strange reason, that makes me feel even more connected to Harry.

You can follow Harry at @RealHarryHudson on Instagram to keep up with his story – I know that I will.

These are the questions I am pondering today, and would love to hear your thoughts:

  • Are you ready to get over your doubts and fears and commit to your dreams?
  • What is standing in your way?

A great review of keepsakes by Carol Colman Collages: birth announcement collage

It is thrilling when I know that a keepsake created by Carol Colman Collages achieves the goal of “wowing” the recipient with its thoughtfulness and originality.

So I am thrilled to share this review of a collage I created for Cigall Goldman of Mazel Moments using the birth announcement for the new addition to their family, baby Liya. A brief excerpt follows:

It’s not every day that you receive a package that blows you away with its thoughtfulness and creativity.  That’s exactly what happened when I received a personalized collage made from my daughter Liya’s baby announcement from the very talented Carol Colman Collages.…A sincere thank you to Carol for creating something so unbelievably special, that our family will treasure forever. A custom collage is a great gift for any life event.”

So you can see what I started with, here is the original birth announcement and the finished product:
