"Somewhere Over the Rainbow"

In this crazy world of mixed up emotions and obstacle to tackle, sometimes it's just important to sit back and remember where your heart truly lies.  I've had quite a few things on my mind lately, and the only thing that has allowed me to relax here and there is to focus on my goals.  Dreams I have, that might seem completely unattainable... still bring a smile to my face when I think about achieving them.  Dreams are an essential part to our lives.  Though my dreams most often grace me at night, they are a major part of why I get out of bed in the morning, something great to live for, to work towards, to believe in.  What do you dream about?

"Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high,
There's a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true.

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far
Behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly.
Birds fly over the rainbow.
Why then, oh why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?"

This song is such a simple statement of how important dreaming is.  For any kid who has had a dream, a goal or a wish for something bigger in their life, the line "And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true," is something they could all hear a little more-- I know I could!  

Day 15: Take one step closer to achieving your dream.  No matter how far fetched or lofty it might be.  Take that step, and be proud.  

Love True-

Judy Garland- "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"
