One of my co-workers asked me to proofread a paper that her daughter had written for a class about her future. Reading her paper about her plans to go to college, become a Meteorologist and work for the weather channel made me reflect on how my dreams have changed over the years.
If I were to look at a paper that I had written when I was this girls age, it would say something about how in the next fifteen years I would like to have finished Vet school and be have my own veterinarian clinic. I would have a family with a lot of animals running around.
I think it’s very important to have dreams and goals. I also think it’s extremely important to have the confidence and faith in our dreams that we had when we were younger. As we get older and life starts to alter our view of reality, sometimes it’s good to look at someone else’s dreams for their lives and let them influence us.
