Often true for me. So much that when I come up with a new dream I get a litle sad as the chances of it happening are slim since I thought of it. Most of the best things in my life were not a dream I had.
Mission statement: I say be so busy about LOVING OTHERS in your life that you have no time for hate, regret or fear! Take the focus off of YOU and put it on G-d. Then you can truly live a life of LOVE with no regrets.
