Some dreams come true. Some dreams don’t come true. One thing is certain, there is an infinite supply of dreams. If you’re dream doesn’t come true, choose another. It may not be what you originally wanted, but it may be better. Allow your dreams to change as you mature and gain experience. You may one day be grateful you didn’t get the dream you originally wanted as you enjoy the dream destined for you.
Get ready. Be prepared. You never know when your turn is going to come. The train will stop just long enough to allow those who are ready and prepared to get aboard.
Eating a healthy diet can also help shield you from cancer.
While no single food is going to provide 100% protection from any type of cancer, research suggests that an anti-cancer foods list would lean heavily toward plant-based foods. Avoiding processed meats is also recommended in accordance with a plant-based diet by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. Amy Kimberlain, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator based in Miami who’s a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends eating five or more servings a day of plant foods and consuming 30 grams of fiber daily. It’s a good idea to include one or a combination of fruit, legumes and pulses, whole grains and nonstarchy vegetables in each meal. “Eating a balanced, varied diet is what’s shown to reduce the risk for cancer more than any one specific food,” she says.
Our beliefs of what we see determines the road we travel. One person looks at a sunset and barely notices it. Another sees the same sunset and gives thanks for God for the gift of life. One person sees a homeless person begging on the sidewalk and wonders why the city allows such things. Another person sees the same homeless person begging and sees someone who’s run into back luck and reaches into his/her pocket for a bit of help. One person sees someone of a different color and worries about his/her safety. Another person sees the same person of a different color and offers a smile and ‘hi, how’s it going?’ Is it time to question our beliefs about what we see?

Any Soul that Drank the Nectar
Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi
Any soul that drank the nectar of your passion was lifted.
From that water of life he is in a state of elation.
Death came, smelled me, and sensed your fragrance instead.
From then on, death lost all hope of me.
It doesn’t matter if we make it over the finish line first if there is no one there to congratulate us. We make it together. In making it together we all have a piece of the action, we are all a part of the reason to celebrate.
