As children, we were daring in our imagination; nothing was impossible to us as young dreamers.
We dreamt of experiencing wild and outlandish experiences in far-off lands.
We dreamt of becoming victorious heroes, genius inventors, and admired artists.
We dreamt of sharing a whimsical love story that left us breathless.
We dreamt of having a big home filled with family and friends tucked away in the forest or on top of a city sky rise.
There was nothing that our little minds didn’t imagine.
Our imagination was fearless.
However, for many, as life played out, when something didn’t work out the way we planned or envisioned, we took those unmet expectations as the sign to stop believing and give up on imagining the wild.
We took it as a token that everyone else was right; our imaginations were lofty.
Little by little, many of us trained ourselves not to trust that “anything can happen”.
We allowed time, experiences, circumstances, and people’s opinions to jade us.
But, what we believe is what we experience.
