“Your dreams are right in front of you.” They’re in the form of written words on that piece of treasured paper. They’re in the form of drawings and diagrams that create webs of more words that mean plans–still on that piece of treasured paper. They’re in the form of actions and doing: living and learning and crying and fighting and sacrificing and smiling and dying and reliving and hurting and trying and failing and relieving and eating and falling and singing and finding–all recorded on a piece of treasured paper called life.
p.s. After spending a day with my friends from middle school on Friday, and ending the day with watching part 2 of “The Cheetah Girls Movie” (tbt) with other friends from college, one line from the movie captured what it means to be a college student for me: “Your dreams are right in front of you.” It’s the scene where Gabriella tells her mother to look down to see her beautifully sketched costume designs for the Barcelona Festival. Here, the mother realizes that her dreams are literally in her hands. And I think college is just like that, too. Seeing my friends are in my hands. Preparing for real life outside these doors are in my hands. Discovering more about myself is in my hands. So, to dreams that are right in front of you, and perhaps, placed right in the palm of your hands!
