Do you believe in Miracles?

Not too long ago, I went for my usual early morning run and soon into my run, I realized there was something different, something exciting “in the air” but I didn’t know what it was. And as I ran (with no Ipod!), out of nowhere, the song “There Can be Miracles if You Believe” from the movie The Prince of Egypt popped into my head!!!!! It’s a beautiful song but I didn’t understand why I was singing this song over and over and over again in my mind…  The more I “played” it, the more excitement I felt and the more excitement I felt, the faster I ran. And what a run I had – totally amazing! Before I knew it, I was finished with my run but the song kept on playing in my head. And I wondered why but then I listened to the words…

Many nights we pray
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hopeful song
We barely understood
Now we are not afraid
Although we know there’s much to fear
We were moving mountains long
Before we knew we could

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It’s hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe…

I couldn’t help but think of my book… I wrote my book because I believed in it’s message – the importance of discovering and listening to our inner voice and of having the courage to live your dreams. As a teen, I always valued the opinions of others over my own, often times “tuning-out” my inner voice, afraid to really listen. That morning I was reminded of the importance of listening, really listening because that inner voice is always present, waiting to be heard. And what was my inner voice saying to me that morning? At one point or another, we all experience challenges and difficult times but we must always, always believe in our dreams. My dream is to get my book into the hands of as many teen girls as possible and, I remain hopeful.

The end of another school year offers us the opportunity to take inventory of our dreams and of what we are doing to achieve them… “There can be miracles, when you believe…” What is your dream? Believe it and you will achieve!

Take good care and as always…
