“It’s funny how our past frames us. How the person we used to be never lets loose of the person we are. Past failures and disappointments, even victories take hold of us. They haunt us like ghosts. Or visit us like old friends.
It’s the oldest story in the world. One day you’re 17 and planning for someday. And then quietly and without you ever really noticing, someday is today. And then, someday is yesterday. And this is your life.
Human beings are ambitious. We spend so much time wanting, pursuing, wishing. But ambition is good. Chasing things with integrity is good. Dreaming... As long as the chase doesn’t diminish what we already have. The goodness we take for granted, the people we take for granted, the lives we take for granted. My life is good.
If you had a friend you knew you’d never see again, what would you say? If you could do one last thing for someone you love, what would it be? Say it, do it, don’t wait. Nothing lasts forever.
Make a wish and place it in your heart. Anything you want. Everything you want.
Do you have it?
Good. Now believe it can come true.
You never know where the next miracle’s gonna come from. The next memory. The next smile. The next wish come true.
But if you believe that it’s right around the corner. And you open your heart and mind to the possibility of it. To the certainty of it. You might just get the thing you’re wishing for.
The world is full of magic. You just have to believe in it. So make your wish. Do you have it?
Good. Now believe in it. With all your heart.”
