Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” Harriet Tubman, abolitionist and humanitarian.

It takes courage to have a dream and to try to follow it. The act of making a wish – of acknowledging to yourself that there is something you want desperately – makes you vulnerable and sets you up for disappointment if you don’t win in the end. But it also opens you up to possibilities and new experiences and the thrill of trying and the excitement of what might happen.

It’s good to make wishes. It concentrates what you want into a clear single thought – and knowing what you want is the first step towards getting it. Dare to ask yourself what you most want out of life, and then have the courage and the honesty and the whimsy to wish for it.
