I stands for inspiration and to my mind there isn’t anything that can inspire you more than your dream, the one that is born in your heart and you carry within your heart all the while. It is this dream that gives you the the strength to move and carry on whatever the circumstances, the courage to move past all the obstacles. It is focus on where you want to be in the end of it all that takes you through It all. And this is summed up perfectly in the lines of this song. And yes another ABBA song. I did promise you more ABBA. I did mention last time how much I love ABBA.

  1. My favorite song, but the same song was sung by Westlife, and I prefer their version. πŸ˜€ ABBA’s version is nice too, but the first version you hear leaves an impact, even more so when the lyrics are so damn beautiful.

  8. During the last conversation I had w/ one of the girls in whose house I spent much of my childhood. “I knew I was coming to NY when I was 10,” told her. “You did?! I wish I had known there was a place I would go.”

    Over the years I’ve wondered about all the things that made me different from the other children who lived in that house, the ones who went from riches to rags. Inspiration & the gift of believing that God had something different for me were essential.

    Your dream is not crazy. It’s a gift. Accept & follow it. I look forward to reading more of your work. Drusilla (visiting from A to Z Challenge – http://lovedasif.com/2014/04/09/i-is-for-isaiah/)
