Watch out all of you who say I am overly optimistic and that my outlook on life is entirely too hopeful because you know what? Dreams do come true.
I woke up this morning knowing, not just hoping or wishing or feeling but knowing that the Chicago Cubs, my Cubs, the team I fell in love with in 1965 and have cheered for every year since, are going to the World Series in my lifetime.
I am now officially an empowered believer.
Beware all you naysayers because my dream list – that list I am now officially empowered to believe and know will come true – is long and lofty!
Here is just a sampling of my Believer’s List this morning.
Hillary Clinton will be the next president of the United States not only because the alternative is horrifying but primarily because we truly are stronger together and she will prove that.
Citizens of the world, not just a privileged few, will have the chance to feel the power of serving others – the power that will propel them to new personal heights – so deeply that they will repeat that service over and over and over leaving an indelible mark on hearts across the globe.
Children, all over the world including right here at home, will go to bed well fed with the proper nutrition for their bodies and brains to grow and thrive.
Girls and young women, globally, will have the opportunity to learn and grow in a safe, sanitary environment.
Climate change scientists – the real Earth keepers – will drive the plan to save the planet and the world will listen and follow.
Barack Obama will take his seat on the Supreme Court.
And my hope for you?
You will wake up tomorrow and ask yourself “What if everything went right today?”…and it does.
Now imagine yourself as an empowered dreamer. What is on your list?
