I'm the sort of girl who has a plethora of ideas, dreams and goals for the future. I have lists on paper, lists in my head and and wishes that whirl through my mind daily, but I'm guilty of leaving them as just that: wishes. But what if we were brave enough to turn all this wishing into doing? What if our actions began to reflect our desires? Scary though it may be, at least we would have tried; there would be no 'what-ifs' or nights spent drifting away into a world of invention and speculation.
What do you think? Shall we be brave?
