Dream Makers

“Kindred Spirits” by Martha Brouwer

We choose our associations for many reasons: we enjoy someone’s company, we like them, we love them, we’re related to them. Sometimes we don’t really know why we choose the people we choose to be around us. But whether we know it or not these relationships have a huge affect on us.

The people with whom we surround ourselves serve as mirrors for us; they can reflect back to us who we really are. Often we are not completely aware of who we are or we are becoming. We can be just as blind to our greatness as we can be to our flaws.

Life seems to move so fast and we push so hard. We put our noses to the grind, ignore the pain and exhaustion and try to keep pushing forward. One day we look up and we’re not quite sure where we are or how we got there. We may find that the journey has taken us in some unexpected direction or we don’t recognize where we are or if we’re on the right path anymore. In times like that we need a little help.

These are the Dream Makers. They come into our lives and bear witness to all that is good and perfect in us. They show us, even if we can’t see it, that our efforts to be better and to manifest our dreams is paying off or that they will pay off. They make our dreams real to us when we are unsure. Who doesn’t need encouragement from time to time?

We are not alone in our Violet Ambitions

    Indeed there are those lights: on side or another, which allows “us” to see where we are on our paths to greatness. Keep dreaming, and every encounter can help you, you’ve just got to know it!
