Erica from Spoonful of Imagination here. Something I have been thinking a lot about lately is how dreams can change. Have you ever wanted something and then when you got it, you realized you didn’t actually want that?
How we process dreams changing can be a bit of an identity crisis.
Depending on truths we believe about ourselves and the way we see the world, we may stay stuck in a dead dream or learn and grow from these experiences into a new dream.
Maybe you filled out a get to know you form in elementary school. Do you know what you listed as your dream job? Every ‘About Me’ form I see these days asks kids what they want to be when they grow up.
I now think this is the wrong question to ask. What if they grow up and get that job, and they are miserable?
That’s why I created a new kind of form that is all about encouraging kids to see this as a journey in learning about themselves and an exploration of things they care about.
In it with you, friends
