Theme: Pursue Your Dreams
Description: "Follow your dreams... pursue your passion..."; this call to action is a common mantra. Yet, so few people honestly pursue a dream or a passion in their life. The barriers can be herculean; but wouldn’t a dream be an ordinary goal, if achieving it didn’t seem nearly impossible? Dreams are those goals that we choose to pursue despite uncertainty, doubt and fear. These emotions are often so strong that they prohibit us from exploring our deepest passion. Those who have been able to conjure the courage to overcome any obstacle and persist in their pursuit of a dream or passion evoke our deepest emotions and inspire our commitment to do the same in our lives.

Title: Live the Life of Your Dreams
