Once Upon a time... There was a girl, who had many dreams. Dreams of being someone, dreams of doings amazing things. All the amazing dreams you could possibility think of.
One day while staring out her window, she saw an older women staring back at her. Shocked, she turned away, to only look back and see the woman was gone.
The next day, she looked for the women all day long but she didn't show.
The following night, she was woke up by a horrible dream, and saw the women beside her bed.
The women was pointing at her. The girl froze in fear and didn't know what to do.
So she closed her eyes, and when she opened them. The women was gone.
The next morning, she looked out her window and saw the old women again. This time she was looking the opposite direction.
The girl looked to see that the old women was holding something, but couldn't see what it was.
The women walked towards the street, and disappeared.
Everyday the girl looked for her, but every day, turned to weeks, months and years.
The women had vanished, and the girl was obsessed with seeing her again.
One night she heard a noise in the hallway, she jumped out of bed and went in search of the noise. She turned in the dark and saw a shadowed figure.
The figures featured became more clear with each step she took.
Then there she was, the old woman. The girl reached out her hand to touch her, but touched a hard surface, surprised she put a candle close to it.
What was it she saw?
It was herself, she was the old woman all along.
The moral of the story is: Don't just dream about what you can do, do it!
Because if you don't, time goes by too fast, and it may be too late.
