I have just come across something I wrote on September the 17th 2002 (while preparing for radiotherapy):
"Dreaming and hope are today’s expectation of what will be now, tomorrow.
Dreams give the inspiration to set goals,
For goals are merely dreams with work-boots on.
Hope gives the motivation and dedication to fulfill today's part of your dreams."
Now, 11 years on, I am so glad I spent time dreaming as well as being anxious when my life was leading up to radiotherapy.
