My parents [rest in peace <3] always reminded me that I’m a Dreamer. Sometimes it was said as a compliment, but not usually. I didn’t care, because I always knew it to be true and never saw it as a negative quality.
I think it’s part of my magic.
In the wake of the most recent acts of terrorism and the following waves of hatred, fear, intolerance and increased ethnocentrism around the globe- I have to Dream.
I have to Dream of a better world.
I have to Dream of people from all walks of life, just living day by day in peace.
I have to Dream of creating moments of Love, of Light, of Beauty, of Hope and sharing them.
I have to Dream of what it would look like if I could make one person pause and smile, and if that person did the same, and so on and on until the smile stretched and went around the World and wrapped her in a warm embrace.
Yes, I am a Dreamer, but I am also a Doer.
I will do my part in making this a more beautiful, magical, loving world today, and I invite you to join me. Create a world of peace within yourself. Be a little more patient, a little less rushed. Share your smile, and let kindness shine through your eyes. Take the time to p a u s e and actually look at the people you interact with today. Imagine they are carrying a giant weight on their shoulders that no one else can see. Dream.
