Life is about believing what you can’t see. When you believe, it becomes real to you. Think of when you were little. You believed in Santa Clause and he was like a real person to you. Believing is like magic — it makes dreams into realities.
The problem with society is that after we start growing up, people start deminishing our fantasies. Those who continue to dream and BELIEVE are much happier in life. It’s like they are still a child at heart. Sometimes people who continue to believe are looked down upon as being childish or immature. But when you believe in yourself, you are more likely to accomplish what you set out to do. Do you think Thomas Edison would have been able to invent the things he did if he didn’t believe in himself?
For those who have been to Seaworld in San Diego, you might remember that their Shamu show is titled “Believe.” If that philosophy is good enough for Seaworld, it should be good enough for us.
“When you believe you can achieve” as the saying goes, so start believing and your dreams may just come true.
My family and best friend
Yesterday, I went to SeaWorld in San Diego. Because I was selected as the winner of the community Leadership Award from our local radio station, KATY 101.3 FM, I received 4 free tickets to SeaWorld. So I got to take my best friend, Jacob. He’s the one on the right next to the holiday sign.
The weather was okay as long as the sun was out but after riding the two wet rides, Atlantis and Shipwreck Rapids, a bunch of times, we got pretty wet and then it got really cold. Walking around in wet shoes and socks all day wasn’t too fun.

I just want to say “thanks” again to KATY for picking me for the Leadership Award. I hope I can inspire and encourage other kids and adults to do things for their communities too. Even if you can’t give a lot, sometimes the smallest thing can make a huge difference in someone else’s life.

I was very surprised when I got a phone call after school today from our local radio station, KATY 101.3 FM. The DJ, Craig Cruise, said the station selected me for the community Leadership Award. It was really cool because he interviewed me about my Pencil Bugs business and asked about the charities I’ve donated to.
Then I was really surprised when he said they had 4 tickets to SeaWorld to give me. I will post again after we go. I’ll be taking my best friend with us since I’m an only child. It will be fun!
