When you were a child you may have had dreams of what you would be when you grew up. I wanted to be a ballerina. I thought that they were lovely and graceful as they floated across the stage in fluffy costumes. I had ballet and tap class and loved it. Standing on the stage in the park in my sparkly costume tap dancing to Playmate was a highlight of my young life. I remember teenager dancing to Carole King's I Feel the Earth Move under My Feet and was in awe of how she could move her body to the music. I listened as she and the dance teacher discussed how well the performance went. It was, to my young mind, magical. Spoiler: I didn't become a ballerina, but I still believe they are lovely and graceful as well as incredibly strong and dedicated. I still love to dance.
That's just one dream I had as a child. I had many more.
How about you?
What were your dreams?
How did they pan out in adulthood?
The question I have today is what are your dreams now? Can you find them or are they lost to you? Some of us don't even know how to dream anymore. We have lost that childlike wonder that dreams create and we move from task to task without the joy that can be a part of life.
How do you get back to a place where you can dream?
One thing that is incredibly useful is to disconnect with technology and sit with your own thoughts. It is unusual in this day and age to disconnect with technology, but it is possible. Start with 10 minutes at a time. Consider what you want, not what you're conditioned by the world outside you to want, but to seek your inner child and discover what is there.
What is there? I want to know. Comment or send me a message and let me revel in the discover with you. I love to share thoughts and ideas.
Let's find our dreams.
