http://bloomliteraryjournal.org/category/nonfiction/ Parents, and caring adults, do you remember dreaming as a child? Our dreams as a child could be very different from what they are today. Maybe dreams you had as a child were squashed, or even laughed at by friends, or family. This blog post is all about dreams, for your daughter, or young girls in you lives. Be open to this idea again.
Dreaming is so important to being a Wonder Girl. As a Wonder Girl dreams are what keep you motivated and moving forward. Many adults forget how to dream. This is because when those adults were your age other adults told them that those dreams are foolish, and even stupid. Those people who tell you that the dreams are foolish want to see you succeed, yet may be scared of how it will play out. Your parents for example may be afraid for you to not achieve your dreams, and want to protect you.
Dreams are allowed to be big, to be scary even. The way for you to achieve that dream is to break it down into small goals. Say for example you have a dram to travel to Ireland and stay in a castle just like “Merida” from the Disney movie “Brave”. What is something you need to do to get started? Do you need to learn about Ireland? Do you need to look on the internet about castles?
Speaking of a goal, some may see the word dream and goal as the same. Start to think. Do you have goals that you want to accomplish?
How many goals can you have you maybe asking? The sky is the limit! You can have as many dreams and goals as you wish! One of the secrets to having them come true is to share them with people. Never lose sight of the end dream. And once you reach the end of achieving that dream, continue onto another one! Always be thinking what’s the next step? Never give up and keep going!
This is one of my favourite songs about dreaming. Take a listen and read the words. So very powerful!!
What are you doing to go forward and dream again? Tell me below!
