There is something wonderfully simple about the way young children see life. It is a way of seeing in which anything is possible, and this means that they see no reason why they can’t grow up to be an astronaut or a cowboy or a princess.
I personally remember a time when I truly believed that I would grow up to be a famous tennis player competing on the world stage. As I grew older, this dream changed to being a critically-acclaimed movie director. Somewhere along the line, though, this dream faded and for a long time I never properly replaced it.
For some reason, I stopped dreaming. Actually that is not quite accurate – I never stopped dreaming, it is just I stopped believing my dreams were possible.
I still dream, and recently learned some people do not anymore. You should try it… Again.
