Kids are natural dreamers. Everything is possible to them. The world hasn’t gotten in their way yet telling them what they can or can’t do.
In a way I envy kids and their ability to dream. It seems as I got older I stopped dreaming and started focusing on a career, kids, and my family.
Learning to dream again is something I’m working on. I like to spend some quiet time each week just letting my mind wander. It’s kind of fun, actually, thinking about different goals or new ideas.
It’s also a relaxing exercise that can turn a bad mood around fairly quickly.
I recently ran across a quote that lays out one of the benefits of dreaming. It’s from Tony A. Gaskins Jr. who said:
“If you don’t build your dream someone will hire you to help build theirs.”
I don’t know about you but I’d rather build my own dream.
Do you dream as much as an adult as you did as a kid?
