As a child, I had thought that life would be filled with adventures because I would be able to do whatever I wanted, and everything would be ‘just perfect.’ Over time, my family and career became the more prominent adventures in my adult life. This worked for me because I was happy with my life and no longer put much thought on my childhood dreams.
After what seemed a lifetime to me, I realized there was no reason to keep childhood dreams on the side. It might have been because I had more time on my hands or that I wanted to do something different. Whatever it was, I am grateful that I did not think that I was too old for my dreams. It was time for me to recapture the enthusiasm and energy that childhood dreams create, no matter what age I was.
Here is list of the dreams that I had growing up:
- Have a family
- Buy a house
- Build a career
- Write a book
- Own my own business
- Play the guitar
- Own a horse
- Learn how to fly
- Perform on stage
- Have a radio show
- Take a train and discover the country
Some of the dreams have already come true. A few are no longer interesting to me and I may cross them out. It is the ones that still make me smile that make my future even brighter than I imagined at this stage in my life.
