Author Quote

“It is easy to think that the time has passed us by, it is too late to have a new dream. We may have reached some of our goals and now it may seem like we are just cruising along. Or maybe we feel we are too old to start on some exciting new journey. In my view, we should always have a goal and a dream to pursue, as this is when we are in our happiest state of mind”.
