“The best way to predict your future is to create it…”

THE AWAKENED SPIRIT (A NEW BOOK)

“The best way to predict your future is to create it
So believe in your dream.
Never throw it away.
Believe in the dream, even when it appears impossible.
Believe in the stars, even when they’re hidden in the storm.
Believe in love, even when you can’t find it or feel it.
Believe in faith, even when God is silent.
So turn your hurts into halos…
and your deepest scars into the brightest stars.
And when it’s time eventually to take your last breath
you will come to the end of your journey
with pride behind you, love around you and hope ahead of you.”
