What do YOU want to be when you grow up?

Today was my son’s kindergarten graduation.   Which, I thought was going to be a pretty lame ordeal.   But, it ended up being totally inspiring.

We got to witness these cute little munchkins walk up onto the stage and declare to a huge audience what they want to be when they grew up.  We heard a lot of princesses, soldiers, teachers, veterinarians, firemen, etc.

And then, it was my kiddos turn, and this is what HE had to say….

OMG.  Seriously?  I about fell on the floor.  MY kid!  And he is for reals.  His room is often a super fly science lab and we have experiments happening all the time in our kitchen.   His latest adventure?  A formula that will bring dead people back to life.   Love my kid.  Man, I love him!!

So, What does this have to do with you? (besides me just totally wanting to show off my awesomely fun kiddo?) :)

Well, all afternoon I have been thinking about how cool it is that he walked up there in front of all those people and boldly shared his dream.  And, did they think he was stupid?  Or that his dream was a bad idea?  Or whatever you tell yourself about your own dreams?  NO!  He brought down the house.  Wild cheering from all!!

When you are six, you are allowed to dream big and wish for anything that you want for your life.  So, what about now?

What do YOU, really, really, no kidding really want for your life?

No matter if you are six or thirty-six, you can be anything that you want. You can do anything you want. You can dream and you can bring down the house with the bold declaration of what it is that you want to do!!

First step?

Share it.  Grab yourself a microphone, open your mouth and tell the world what you want.  Belt it out, proudly – passionately.  We are listening and, I promise, we are going to cheer for you wildly.

My son totally made me smile today, with his courage to march to the beat of his own drum.  He is totally not afraid to be who he is. It’s mad inspiring!

Today, I invite you to follow his lead.  Share who you are with the world.  Announce your dreams.  Let it rip!!
