You never know what life is like, until you have lived it. - Marilyn Monroe

As the year draws to a close it is nice to look back at what we achieved this year.

Both in our personal lives and at work, there is a great sense of excitement as the year draws to a close. We have to reflect on our accomplishments professionally, above all, we have to keep on striving to achieve our dream. 

Since child hood, dreams and goals shape our lives and motivate us to learn from our failures and success.

Dreams are important for all ages. Dreams encompass goals and more. They give your life purpose, direction, and meaning. They shape your life choices, help you build toward the future, and give you a sense of control and hope. They're an expression of your potential and give voice to your talents. They're a source of pleasure and help develop the self. And they can change the world –famous words from Martin Luther King, Jr.

To make up from our shortfalls, to achieve the change that is greatly desired, we also have to change the way we do things with regard to our attitudes, feelings no matter how persuasive our friends and close pals speak to us, and unless change comes from within us the change will be elusive.

We should remain hopeful, calm and united despite our diverse opinions as 2012 draws near.

Above all, I am thankful for all the people I have always interacted with. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said:  To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to leave the world a better place; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
