Following Your Dreams


   I don't know a lot about Henry David Thoreau (yet).  I do know he was a famous writer and philosopher.  But I do know that I love some of his ideas and quotations. This is probably my favorite quotation of his that I've discovered so far.

   Obviously he was a man who thought "out-of-the-box".  Someone once said, "Don't just think outside-of-the-box. Think as if there is no box."  He did not set any limits or restrictions to what he could think or accomplish.  I have caught myself being complacent in a rut, one of my own making, and being self-satisfied with the "status quo".  I think we have set limits on ourselves that God does not mean for us to establish. 

  We are meant to have a freedom to grow and expand our horizons, and it is an unlimited life, if we choose to let ourselves accept it.  John 10:10-- Jesus said -- "I have come that they may have Life, and have it more abundantly." 

  As we've heard it said, "The Sky's the Limit!"  Let's live life to the full -- let's max it out -- and not allow ourselves or others to build walls and gates of complacency and mediocrity around us that limit us from achieving our potentials and enjoying total freedom!
