For as you dream, so shall you become!

Quote by Friedrich Von Schiller:
“Keep true to the dreams of the youth.”
When we were young our innocent minds were wide open to learning and experiencing all new things! We had no inner critic or ego shattering our dreams. We were free to dream and have many choices about who we wanted to be when we got to be adults! 

We had so many role models, our teachers, mentors, parents and other adults who encouraged us in many different ways, especially telling us we could be whatever our hearts desired! They reminded us we would have to work hard to get to that ideal, and we really had to decide if that was what we wanted to do. Not all of us had those kinds of role models and encouragement, and I think some of us suffer from not having had that in our youth.
Many times as we grew to become adults, we started having responsibilities and families, etc., and we had to put our dreams of our youth on hold and choose other ways to earn a living.
I remember when I was a youngster inspired by my third grade teacher, I would love to pretend I was a teacher too! I had my blackboard with colored chalk and my desk facing in front of my class! It was so many years ago, I can’t remember what I was teaching, but I remember loving to write on the chalk board and talk to my imaginary students in my classroom (bedroom)!
Unfortunately I did not become a teacher, but you never know, there’s still time! When I really think about it, becoming a teacher was one dream I put on hold, and still to this day I would like to give it a try in some format! At this stage I don’t have the college degree to be a school teacher, but I could certainly start teaching art workshops, etc.! We shall see as I continue to think about reinventing myself in my third act! 

I love this quote and I will definitely ponder on what my dreams were of my youth! My other favorite quote by James Allen: “Dream lofty dreams, as you dream, so shall you become. Your vision is the promise of what you one day shall be: your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil.”
