Do Not Let Go Of,
Author: Catherine Pulsifer, © 2007
Don't let go of your dreams. If you have determination and belief in your dreams, you will succeed in spite of your desire to let go.
One notable person who demonstrated this attitude was Washington Roebling. He and his father had a dream of building a suspension bridge. Not long after starting construction, his father died. Washington carried on but was struck with the paralyzing caisson disease. It was impossible for him to go to the site. But possessed with a dream, a strong desire, and with the help of his wife, Emily, he was able to complete the Brooklyn Bridge.
This story has many themes in it: determination; your dreams; and choice.
Here was a man who suffered the death of his father and became paralyzed, yet, because he was determined he did not give up on his dreams!
In every situation we have a choice. We can either choose the negative or we can choose the positive --- the choice is ours. In Washington's situation he could have felt sorry for himself and gave up on his project. He chose, however, to continue with the help of others.
the positive or the negative?
