“I came here to tell you that I know what it feels like to be afraid to show who you are… I was, but I’m not anymore. And the thing is, is that I don’t really care what people think about me, because I believe in myself and I know things are going to be okay. But even though I have no family, and no job, and no money for college, it’s you that I feel sorry for. I know that guy that sent those email is somewhere down inside of you, but I can’t wait for him… because waiting for you is like waiting for rain in this drought. Useless and disappointing.” - A Cinderella Story (2004)
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. We spend so much time wanting, pursuing, wishing. But ambition is good. Chasing things with integrity is good. Dreaming…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.
