Are you also getting fooled and not sure about your dreams? That young child in the story is you, your inner child wants to speak up and tell you about dreams you had, but let go.
It is so easy to let go of those dreams, we get busy with work, raising a family, kids events, mates and their dreams and the list of distractions go on and on. I say enough, time to get back to your dreams and living the life you love.
Take some time, even 5 minutes to dream a dream of your desires. Jump into that dream, bathe in the wonderful feelings of amazing joy and love. Live it and take action. Just a small step in the direction of your dreams will open new doors for you. Speak up and say want you want and do allow others to talk you out of it. Live BOLD and dream again.
Much joy and love to you and yours
