With these vivid images of my younger self racing through my mind I started to ask myself what was I thinking? What were by biggest dreams and hopes in life back then? Although I can't remember everything, I do remember a few things. I would venture to say the things I do remember were some of the most prominent thoughts from my childhood especially because I still remember them many years later.
I remember I always had a plan for my life, I know that's nothing crazy but being organized and having a plan has been who I've been since I was a wee little gal. Even though my plans often changed there was one common thread every time, and it was while I was daydreaming I seemed to figure it out, all these years later. When the adults in my life asked that age old question "What do you want to be when you grow up?" I had many different answers I wanted to be a ballerina, teacher, artist and as I got older my answers changed to an architect, graphic designer, interior decorate and a social worker. Well I ended up going to school to be a social worker but ironically the profession I chose was the ONLY profession that wasn't creative.
Now that I am aware of this I am going to make a conscious effort to increase the creativity in my day to day life. I can't wait to see how it impacts me, I am actually excited to see what's in store for me in my creative journey.
Do you remember what your dreams were as a child? Are you living the dreams you had when you were a child or have you suppressed them to pursue other things in life?
