As children we dream of what the future hold.

As young adults we strive to reach the goals that could give that future we dreamed of.

In those moments of shattered reality, I need to be reminded - told again, clearly - what my purpose is, what steps I should be taking, who I really am.

Do you know what I'm talking about?  Have you had moments, days, maybe weeks, where you are running at full speed towards something you can even name or remember?  (share with your moments in the comments)

Then why don't we take a couple of moments - grab that cup of tea or coffee you so want to relax with, and be reminded of who you are. Then you can work out what it is you are working towards the steps you need to take.

Here's your reminder, MY reminder:

And now, go ahead, be refreshed by this reminder and start again. I am...
