To all those who are lost, stuck or scared, I speak to you, I speak to those who want, can and will…
It’s hard at times not to think of our potential. I grew up and was educated, the early years were great, and being told you can do and achieve anything you want was liberating. As a young child that notion of freedom opens one’s eyes to the endless possibilities of what lies ahead. But as I progressed through the education system, slowly limits were placed; my educators who sought out the best for me now had to juggle what my dreams were and what I was actually capable of. As a child you think differently and you see the world in a way unlike any other. Then as I progressed through the system, those dreams I had as child were mere memories but great memories at that. It wasn't until in my early adult hood that I harked back to my dreams and now doing things which I thought not possible. It’s a fine line thinking you can do anything in the world, but that’s just it, that fine line are people who tell you that you shouldn't do it, that fine line are the doubters who place fear in your mind and soul, it’s that fine line that separates you from achieving your dreams no matter how extraordinary or out of this world it will be. To parents, educators, I implore you to allow your children and students to dream big and harness the power of those dreams to enable them to live it, in any capacity possible. I was not giving the chance but I still turned out all right, not all will have this chance, but everyone has the right from birth to dream, don’t let the dream be extinguished before the fire in them burns out too soon.
