I once had
a professor who encouraged us to dream hog wild! She asked us, “If there was
nothing to hold us back and we could do anything in the world, what would our
lives look like?” I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately.
someone asks my daughter what she’s going to be when she grows up, she answers “a
wedding dress designer, an Olympic gymnast, a restaurant owner, a veterinarian”
and the list goes on. She dreams big! Why is it as we grow older that some of
our dreams begin to fade or perhaps we stop dreaming at all?
disillusionment or disappointment from life’s hardships that keep us from
dreaming? Or is it fear of failure? I’m not sure, but I am determined to dream
hog wild! I may not achieve all of my dreams (isn’t that why they’re called
dreams anyway), but I want to live my life striving for the things that mean
the most to me.
revisiting my bucket list, but more than that I’ve been asking myself what it
is that I truly want out of life. I encourage you to do the same. Go Hog Wild –
