I’ve been watching your dreams grow inside you as you try to make limbs move in the ways you want them to. Arms that don’t quite reach and legs that wobble. I’ve been watching your determination and self-belief spreads over your face like a mask. I can hear you tell yourself I can do it I can do it I can do it.
It may only be the last piece of toast on your brother’s plate. It may only be that Princess puzzle piece in the corner of the room. It may only be the smallest but shiniest piece of discarded nothing. But you see it. You want it. You dream of it. And one day you will get it.
Dream big, baby. Because one day those big dreams of impossibility will be right there for you to take. One day those legs will walk and that mind will speak out and make sure it does. Hold your power close to you and reach for that tiny, shiny object. Reach out and take your chances. Don’t leave anything you want to do undone. Don’t leave any book unread or stone unturned. Ask questions, explore, excite. Don’t wait for somebody else to fix the things that are wrong- be that somebody. Never settle for half measures. Remember that YOU have got what it takes to get those dreams that you dream… but remember that it will take everything that you’ve got to get there. You can do it. Be brave. Be strong. Be yourself.
Dream big, baby.
