~ Langston Hughes ~
Many of our dreams died as our addiction got worse. We felt the loss but couldn’t speak it. With recovery, we regain our ability to dream. Dreams of sharing our lives with family and friends return. They push out thoughts of getting high. Dreams of pride and self-respect reappear. They replace the awful feeling of shame.
Like the quote above says, “Hold fast to dreams….” Our dreams are our wishes for the future. They hold a picture of who we want to be. In our dreams, we let our spirits soar. Often, we fell close to God, others and ourselves. Thanks God, we can dream again.
Prayer for the Day:
Higher Power, thanks to you, my wings have been mended. Guide me as I fly.
Action for the Day:
Today, I’ll take time out to dream and share my dream with those I love.
