Oi, you dreaming ar?
Yes, with the recent conclusion of the Ford Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii, I cannot help but dream that I'll be there some day... racing on the same stage with the world's best Ironman triathletes. But that shall remain a dream... for now.
And regardless of whether the dream will be fulfilled someday, it is only from a dream, when it can become a reality. One must DARE TO DREAM.
This last quote, I got from my lil' sister Karen, whom I've always felt is living in a world of her dreams, and needs a reality check from time to time.
Karen will be running the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon this coming December... blindfolded. She'll be doing this to raise funds for the Kiwanis Down Syndrome Foundation, Malaysia.
Dreams begin from imagination. From seeing yourself in a cognitive visualisation. And for most of us, to begin dream, we have to close our eyes, block out the barriers, and let our minds go wild.
...because I'd like everyone to have the opportunity to have dreams...dreams that you and I were fortunate enough to be given the chance to pursue simply because we were born able and healthy.
In a way, we need more dreamers like Karen... to escape from the cold, harsh surroundings in our everyday lives, which have become very much a reality.
So for those of you with a bit spare change or would just like to find out more, please click here. Your support is most appreciated :)
