“Memories without dreams are anchors.”
~Dan Rockwell, aka “Leadership Freak”
Memories are precious. My life is all the richer for the memories I’ve tucked away.
But if all I have is memories — images of days gone by — those very things I treasure will weigh me down, dragging all my forward motion to a stop.
I also need dreams-yet-to-come-true — things I’m pursuing because I’m called to accomplish a certain goal, meet a certain need, find the elusive answer to a question.
Life isn’t about staying safely in harbor, or about setting sail for a bit and then dropping anchor. No, I have to be willing to pull up anchor — let memories be memories — and set sail for the next dream.
In Your Words: Do memories ever seem like an anchor? What dream are you pursuing right now?
