Learn to Say Goodbye Sometimes we need to say good-bye. Some good-byes come suddenly, without warning. Others are anticipated. Sometimes they’re a relief. And sometimes they hurt deeply. We say good-bye to beliefs and behaviors that become outdated. Occasionally, along the journey we need to say good-bye to something else, to—our dreams. Dreams are precious. They become embedded in our minds and our hearts. When they die, it can be painful to let go of them. But if we’re not careful, dead dreams we haven’t released can sabotage our lives and hearts. We will continue to try to place people and things in the vacant roles in our dreams. Our dead dreams will, in fact, be controlling our lives and blocking our hearts. Living with dreams that are dead closes the door to finding new visions and creating new dreams, your highest hopes and aims. The ones from yesterday that are now—never to be—and place them gently in the ground. Tell them how dear they were, and are. But tell them also, its time say good-bye. Cover them up. Dry your eyes. And open yourself to the new hopes and dreams of today.
