I LOVE THIS POST!
I re-read FDR's inauguration speech which was linked to the article you suggested - so much of what he said applies to us today - it lifted my spirits for the day and given the market, that is priceless...
Thank you for an insightful reflection...

I agree with Stacey P. This post ranks in my top 10 favorite Dare to Dream entries. Your perspective could not be any more needed - and I venture that many of us are struggling with sharing your views. But...

We take care of each other by investing in each other. Throughout my first year of business, friends, family, and acquaintances took care of me by investing in my dream - financially, physically, and emotionally. Each investment has directly contributed to the growth of my business, and subsequently, the growth of my spirit.

Looking back, I am awed by their willingness to invest - or more specifically, to risk their resources on me and my company. At the same time, however, I have taken for granted their confidence in my dream. Thanks for the reminder of the leap of faith that they took on my behalf.

This was a beautiful analogy - loved the developing pictures as well. Definitely one of the most timely blogs - will need to share with others - everyone is talking about this. We choose to keep planting the cherry trees ourselves. Amy Jo

I'm so glad you posted this. I have been wanting to hear from you on all that's going on with the economy. Thank you!

There is a prophetic promise to those who will read a book, it exhorts the reader by saying this: ...that you should remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men..." To know the truth, you need to remember or to be grateful. Sometimes we are like Veruca in Willie Wonka - she says: "I want the world. I want the whole world. I want to lock it all up in my pocket. It's my bar of chocolate. Give it to me now." I liked your reminder to be grateful on a daily basis. Thanks.

About this blog

  • When I took a sabbatical from Wall Street to pursue a different dream and help others live theirs, I learned that women in the U.S. may be placated, even pampered, but because we aren't dreaming, we are also desperate and depressed. Drawing on a variety of sources, ranging from academic studies to pop culture, dare to dream encourages us to dream. And then to act on our dreams.
