I Still Have A Dream

Monday January 18th is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

Wikipedia describes Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. 

We celebrate this day in memory of his efforts for freedom and equal rights for all people. In his now famous speech "I have a dream"  Dr. King spoke of Abraham Lincoln, the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation and the Declaration of Independence.  He follows that with a list of his dreams, dreams for equality, brotherhood and freedom.

Dreams are more important than we realize and today is a good day to step back and measure yourself as to how you are doing personally in achieving your own dreams.

With a new year ahead of us - and now a lot of New Year resolutions fallen off to the side - let us re-energize our dreams and strive to achieve them this year.  

I like lists.  So as I create my To-Do list for 2016, I make sure it has everything from my loftiest dreams down to my monthly wish list dreams. Make sure your list of dreams include some that are achievable and some that are high-reaching - to stretch yourself.  Set up some reminders; in this way you can review your progress and accomplishments and maybe even add more challenging dreams.

From all of us at Safelyfiled, dream big!
