I found this jar in my daughter’s closet. My first impulse was to pour in some loose change I had and I did.
Seconds after that I thought, what happened to my dreams? What happened to all those illusions I had, and those few ones I still keep?
Could it be that I am aging and I see that some things are just not possible, or do I need to be 13 years old to wish a fulfilled life?
What is the difference for what I hope for at this time than from the past time?
My 13 year old daughter doesn’t have much in terms of wealth and still has big dreams. I am in the same conditions, with the exception of age. Where are my dreams?
Would it be that I have a perception of reality that she doesn’t have and because of that, I know what is supposed to be possible and what impossible?
So far she has accomplished many goals with determination, a set mind and a strong will. Would that be what one needs?
Now, I have my own jar where to keep my change, a to-do list for what I want and I have dug up long time dreams.
Let the journey begin, with determination, a set mind and a strong will.
