The movie "Rock Star" was on today which got me thinking about childhood dreams. We all grow up dreaming about what we want to be or do with our lives, but it struck me that boys and girls have way different dreams.
In general, boys dream of being, yeah, rock stars, or sports stars, or firemen, or policemen. Girls, on the other hand, dream of being wives and mothers, or writers, or owning a small diner or coffee shop, or....You see, the thing is women don't seem to dream big. I wonder why that is?
Do we intentionally seek out the quiet/safe things in life? Or is it something we're taught to expect out of life, the small dreams that never cast us in the spotlight.
Of course, not everyone who dreams big achieves that height of superstar status that they're looking for, men or women. Life is what it is and we all learn to live with the hand life deals us. But sometimes, I just wish that I'd dreamed way bigger than I did.
