What does “Dare to Dream” mean to you?

It can be difficult at times to remember that you’re the only person in control of where you’re going in life. It’s also easy to forgt that what you do today shapes what’s coming to you in the future.

The mind if a powerful muscle and the thoughts you’re having right now, and the actions you’re taking today, are moulding the kind of future you’ll have. This year’s Advent Windows by Richard the First Pub asks you to look within yourself and DARE TO DREAM.

Come to our pub, admire our Advent Windows, choose a star and write what you dream for in your life.

Dr. Seuss says, “Only you control your future.”
