You Mustn’t Be Afraid To Dream A Little Bigger, Darling
Choosing Your Own Beliefs And Dreaming Bigger
we believe that we’re all born knowing that anything is possible, but then as we grow up, the world around us gradually imposes limitations on us, and our imaginations slowly conform to the boxes other people have created.
most of us inherit our beliefs from the people who raise us. from the get go, we’re told what we’re supposed to believe about things… like religion, morals, money, and "what’s important in life". …and as other’s pass knowledge onto us, our own inner truth can sometimes get lost along the way.
the parent trap...
the ways that "dis-belief" enters our minds can be subtle... it's normal for little kids to question, to ask "why?", and so many times, they are met with responses like "because that's just how it is". most people tend to think "their" beliefs are what everyone else should believe, so parents often tell children what they are "supposed" to believe, with the intent to keep them close to their own thinking - and sadly, sometimes that thinking creates an extremely restricted view of life.
we are not parents of course haha, but we still think it's a bummer that so many people view children as "their property". we believe that parents are people who are given the opportunity to guide young souls on their journey through this world, and we wish more parents chose to allow children to live their own truth.
but no matter what you were "allowed" to believe growing up, you always have the power to choose what you want to believe now. you can think beyond the limits you were given, you can explore ideas you were never allowed to explore, you can choose a new direction, you can have more hope, you can feel more love, you can let your imagination break free from the things you were told aren't possible.
don't let anyone else hold you back in life from what you want to think, feel, and believe is possible... and always remember that you mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
