Childhood Dreams

Creativity Prompt had this journaling prompt this week:

Childhood dreams tend to be grand and out of this world. We feel that everything is possible if we just want it strongly enough. Childhood dreams can involve figments of our imagination as well as feasible goals and aspirations.

For this week’s journaling prompt set aside a few moments and try to remember what were your childhood dreams. Write a list of every dream you manage to call to mind and make a note about the ones that actually came true.

Here's what I came up with:

  • to be a teacher
  • to get married and have babies
  • to spend summers as the educational director at the San Diego zoo
  • to learn sign language, and teach it to chimpanzees (courtesy of the movie Project X)
  • to have a dream that I found money all over the playground at school and wake up to still be clutching it in my hands
  • to find a pot of gold and a leprechaun at the end of the rainbow
  • to have lots of pets
  • to visit the Wonka Chocolate Factory
  • to live next door to my best friend when we grew up

Make a list of your childhood dreams and create a layout featuring then and now pictures of yourself.
