My ambition to become an attorney was based on my love of Perry Mason. I loved watching the reruns on television. I still do. Perry Mason never lost a case and was very eloquent in defending his clients. Due to various challenges, I was unable to become an attorney. However, I had the opportunity to work with attorneys and realized that I would not have enjoyed being an attorney - although I would have been an amazing one.
Throughout the years, I continued to draw but added two new passions: reading and writing. Reading massaged my brain and allowed me to explore and expand my imagination. The result of this passion increased my ability to be creative in my writing. I love the ability to rearrange words into an entertaining piece of writing. I soon added becoming a writer to one of my dreams to follow. My first piece of writing was a poem. I then began to write short stories. Eventually, my love of writing led me to self-publish a book of poems and short stories.
Now, I am writing adventures for children to read through the characters of Little Pampu and the Chocolate Bunnies. The little girl in me continues to dream. It is important that we give children the hope that whatever they choose to dream, that it is possible. As adults, we should always support them and allow them to dream. Life will teach them if they should pursue their dreams or abandon them. However, adults should attempt to encourage children to believe in themselves so that they may dream.
Lastly, I am following my dreams and hoping that you will follow yours as well. Give it a try! You will never know how successful you will be if you never try! Are you living your dreams? If so, what are they? If not, what is stopping you?
