I feel as an adult I am not allowed to dream anymore. I must grow up, conform, and act appropriate for my age. Well, I can tell you there is no fun in that! I was reminded this this morning by a friend at work.
I work with a woman who sent me this photo tonight and it made me giggle. She is a rare breed of person, this woman, because she actually believes that unicorns exist. I sort of laughed at her last week when she told me her theory on unicorns but the more I thought about it, perhaps she is right. Perhaps the creature that I have always thought was just a mythical beast is indeed a real life being. I don't know. I have never seen a unicorn, however that doesn't mean he is mythical! In the same manor that I have never seen a platypus, I know it exists. This is the conviction that she stands by in her belief of unicorns. I must say I hope she is right. I hope one day she is able to see her unicorn with her very own eyes. I hope that she never gives up believing and dreaming. You see, this woman is a breath of fresh air in a place where you must conform to what is normal in order to be taken seriously.
So tonight I encourage you to folks to dream! I want you to dig down deep and find that thought you have been suppressing because you were made to feel inadequate, stupid, or childish. I want you to dust off that thought, and breathe life into it. I want to know: what do you dream of? What is the truth that you hold onto?
Now you are asking yourself, what do I get out of this?! You get the ability to believe again and when you leave a comment you will be entered for a chance to win your very own cupcake lip gloss. Give this lip gloss to your friend, your daughter or your own inner child. She will be happy you took a minute to hang out with her again!
Note: I will leave this giveaway open until Monday morning and I will notify the winner by email or on my blog. Remember to check back to see if you are a winner! All winners will be chosen at random, and there will be 3 winners for this contest. Good luck!
