Does every child dream of becoming rich and famous or was it just me? Growing up in a large family I used to fantasize about what my life would become. Although, deep inside I knew these dreams were just that, somehow my young mind found difficulty in seperating reality from fiction. I distinctly remember getting ready in the East bathroom ( makes it sound like I was raised in a castle), thinking about what I would feel like when I was famous bumping into someone I knew "back when." Funny enough, I never knew how I would obtain this "fame." No doubt, many children have such daydreams, but for some these dreams become reality. So, today my question is this... How do I help my young son turn his dreams from childhood aspirations to physical accomplishments? Not only that, but how do I take my hopes for my personal future, weed out the ridiculous, and obtain the possible? Who knows? I recently bought the Carrie Underwood cd, and I love it (Cheezy? maybe.) But I love it! Anyway, there is an expample of someone who dared to dream, and made those dreams come true.
