When I was a little girl, I believed that anything was possible…

My cousins and I used to make up dance routines because we were going to grow up to be professional dancers. Our routines were complete with costumes, grand entrances and exits and props – including chairs and stools.

I used to do competition double dutch because I believed that I was training for the Olympics. My brow furrowed, my hair flew all over the place, but none of that mattered, because I was willing to do whatever it took to win!

I used to try on careers like costumes… using my day dreams and my imagination to try things on for size… the secretary… the assassin… the professional poet…

Something happens to little girls & little guys. We put on the coat of fears handed to us by other people.

“Do you know how much money that costs?”

“It’s dangerous…”

“I don’t think you should do that…”

We walk in the shoes of doubt, sometimes following in the exact same steps of the original owner. Walking toward a path of mediocrity, disappointment and regret.

I want to remind you, right now, that the little girl or little guy in you is still in there. Waiting for you to give him/her permission to dream.

As adults, we don’t have the barriers that we had as children. We create the life we want based on our habits, decisions and executing our goals! Don’t disappoint him or her. S(he)’s waiting for you to make her(his) dreams a reality!
