We all have dreams. Some become nightmares, others come true. I was looking for another song when I found this.
Have you read the lyrics? Here they are:I dreamed a dream in time gone by When hope was high and life worth living, I dreamed that love would never die I prayed that God would be forgiving. Then I was young and unafraid, And dreams were made and used and wasted. There was no ransom to be paid; No song unsung, no wine untasted. But the tigers come at night With their voices soft as thunder As they tear your hopes apart And turn your dreams to shame. Still I dream he’d come to me; That we would live the years together, But there are dreams that cannot be, And there are storms we cannot weather. I had a dream my life would be So different from this hell I’m living. So different now from what it seemed. Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.

Dreams do best when tied to SMART Goals, so here is a free poster coach.

Not inspired by a WordPress DAILY PROMPT, but part of my efforts to postaday which for me means five days a week. I think is healthier to take a break, particularly from media and electronics. So remember if the weekend is coming turn off, tune out, take a break and improve your #EmotionalIntelligence.
