Redreaming the Dream | Soniah Kamal | TEDxGeorgiaStateU

vor 2 Jahren

We are taught to live our dreams and passions, but what happens when our dreams are permanently deferred? We often fall into the trap of living in the "land of if only," spending all our time looking at closed doors instead of looking for new doors. Taking control of our emotional time can redirect our dreams and build our resiliency.
