"Don’t be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality.
If you can dream it, you can make it so."

Belva Davis (1932- )

This is such good advice for the kids that I work with.

They see themselves frequently as failures and "throw-away" kids and yet they have dreams of being successful, of being accepted, of being popular, and so much more. They see where they are (a group home and a special education classroom) and they dream of college, professional sports, acting or music contracts and all of the other things that every other teenager dreams about.

It looks like an impossible distance to navigate, that gulf between where they are and where they want to be.

I think that Belva Davis is saying that that distance is is only as insurmountable as you make it. If you can see yourself on the other side then you WILL be on the other side.

While I really like this sentiment, this seems to be a bit too over the top.

Reach for your dreams, for it is in reaching for them, not in achieving them, that the true accomplishments are made.

Not all dreams are able to come true, not all goals are reachable. But that should never stop us from trying. It is amazing how things that were once impossible are now common place.

Sometimes...

"It's a long long way to Tipperary.
BUT my heart's right there."

We may get sidetracked, off course, have to take a break, (LIFE HAPPENS)- but it's a shame to give up on the goal/dream just because it doesn't come easy.
