Chasing Dreams...

Dreams are like butterflies,
You've to chase them with passion.
Neither too hard, nor leaving it to chance,
With right mix of planning and enthusiasm.

    1. Sometimes we try too hard and loose perspective. For fresh ideas we have to be calm and enjoy the journey.

  16. Hi Saru, These are two lines of a poem I remember, I do not know by whom. "Try out those wings and head for your star, no matter how far it may seem, go for the finest and best that you are, and dream the most wonderful dream." Loved your words. Practical and magical at the same time.
