|What girls want
||[Sep. 1st, 2008|08:47 am]
The only thing I wanted to be when I grew up, when I was a young girl, was beautiful. Think back to when you were little. I have heard so much about childhood dreams and The Last Lecture is on my mind. What were my dreams as a child. Oh yes, to be a waitress at Denny's. To be beautiful. To jump on the bed. To watch TV and Movies. To have friends stay over whenever I wanted to. To wear lots of jewelry and makeup.|
Well, mission accomplished. This is all I dreamed of. I have more than I dreamed of. If I'm living out my dreams all I need is a great deal of glitter and pastel colored tulle gowns with lots of time to do makeup each day.
Being useful was not part of my dream. Doing "greater good" didn't matter. Only tea parties. Castles. Reading a book down by the river.
I guess deep in my soul, like most children, I'm a shallow and vain creature. Quite a frivolous thing.
Perhaps, unlike Randy, I don't think my childhood dreams are the be all, end all to aspire to, but I did like his speech.
