You may be familiar with the Movie Shirley Valentine about a bored house wife in the UK who spends her days talking to her kitchen wall because …………..well…….because its there really.

I truly believe that Dreaming BIG, imagining what you want to exists, will without doubt facilitate its existence.
This may be something as grand as Time Travel or as simple as a running water in your home.
It matters not what you dream, only that you dream and that you believe it possible. The how is not important either, because you don't know what you don't know yet & the how may be just around the corner.
So my challenge to you today is to let your imagination run wild, dream of something that you truly want to happen or see exist, believe in its inevitability …AND somehow, somewhere, someone will, in the words of Jean-Luc Picard “make it so”!
