(I'm mainly talking Alice a la the recent Disney films starring Johnny Depp; the first movie was directed by Tim Burton (UK - US.))
I think we all need to do that - no matter how hard it may feel (and lord knows we've got some damned tough times coming.)
When you believe, and you keep trying, you really can achieve what others may call the impossible.
My lovely country, Wales, has reached the semi-finals in Euro 2016.
Now, if you know nothing about football (soccer) this may not mean much to you.
Let's just say that short of the World Cup, the Euros are about as big as you can get (and thank whoever may be listening that competing is not reliant on being a part of the EU.)
We were not expected to do anything - we were expected to be canon fodder to the other teams. We didn't care. The red shirt is the red shirt, whether it's on a rugby player or a football player.
(In case you've been hiding under a rock, this is Gareth Bale. He's one of the best players in the world. And he's ours.)
(And so did Iceland, for that matter - they aren't even professional players, which is fab. Their coach is a part-time dentist, and they defeated England - one of the richest international teams in the world.)
I'm not saying that failure isn't an option - it's OK to fail. What I'm saying is that a little hope, optimism, and belief, can go a long way.
So believe in 6 impossible things before breakfast. Because the world moves in a better direction when we achieve Impossible Things.
Nerd Church is a weekly post where I ramble on about various 'issues' and/or random thoughts. If you liked it, I'd be uber-pleased if you shared :)
