Motivational Monday: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Had a Dream

Motivational Monday

Over 50 years ago, during the March on Washington, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. made his inspiring “I have a dream” speech.  In it, he called for all Americans to realize true racial equality and put an end to discrimination.

For Americans of all races, creeds and colors, who come here from all over the world, our nation is the place where dreams can come true.

So, on this Motivational Monday, as we honor Dr. King, ask yourself:

“What is my greatest dream?”

We at Publishers Clearing House truly hope it comes true for you!

I have a dream that my son and I will own our own home one day thanks to PCH and never have to worry about moving again or if I’m going to be physically able to continue to work. A little over a year ago I was in a wheelchair unable to work, walk, or move without having intense pain. I was told I may never walk again. I couldn’t except that not with a 9yr old boy and single. So, I saw myself walking again and prayed. Now not only am I walking, I’m back to work with no restriction.
When I have a dream, it usually comes true. This is one I want to come true for I have so many, so much to be thankful for. This would surely be a blessing.

I have a dream….

That there will be a cure for endometriosis and for myself and other women to live a normal life without constant surgeries. No woman deserves to go through this, and if I had the money, I’d pay for more research to be done and help my endosisters out. They’ve helped me so much. There needs to be more awareness on this disease.

My greatest Dream? No debts at all, period.
Debts make me worry all the time and my anxiety my fibromyalgia and my bad back worsen leading to lack of sleep.

All of these together, affect my mental,emotional and social function
So yes, my “greatest dream” is to have more than enough money to help myself, my husband, our families(several of them are struggling financially, no job no health insurance) good friends and children/people in need, as well as animal shelters.
And do “not” break my promises!
PCH employees are in my list too.

Despite this struggle, I am happy, because I have an excellent husband (diabetic type 1, was hospitalized for 5 days last week) and his good sense of humor :) makes me change my :( bad mood days.

Helping others make me feel happy. :) :) :) :) :)

This dream is a dream that wpuld come to reality if I won that superprize on Feb.28th. Not only would my dreams come true but a few more dream would.I look at iit this way dreams do come true if you win or not.You have to havr faith and a caring heart to be able to fulfill your dreams and make them happen.Im in this to win it and make my dream come true. Just like MLK said dreams can come reality. His did and oneday mine will too.

“What is my Greatest Dream? ”
My greatest dream is to win a Publishers Clearing House “WIN for LIFE” or “WIN FOREVER” Sweepstakes. I have always dream of that #WIN4LIFE and #WIN4EVER #BIGCheck with my name on it. And that first real check handed to me by Dave so I deposit the check in the bank right away at home. My greatest dream that after winning a #PCH Win for life or Win forever I can retire and put my winnings in a #401K, I can open up my fun side a little more, and I can financially bless my family, friends, and many charities.
This my dream to be FREE AT LAST of Worrying putting money aside just incase. To be FREE AT LAST of Working more and having to wait another year until I can take my next vacation. To be FREE AT LAST to focus on my health by exercising in the park while enjoying nature. To be FREE AT LAST of no mortgage, no car note, and NO DEBT. This is MY GREATEST DREAM ♣PCHFANS♣ Happy MLK Day
