Once upon a time I dreamed of being a corporate woman, highly educated, a force to be reckoned with in a world dominated by men.
Once upon a weird time I dreamed of being a firefighter. Why? Because some stupid boy in elementary school told me I couldn’t be one, that’s why!
Once upon a time I dreamed of joining the Army, of being like my dad in my greens, saluting and training to defend my country.
Once upon a time I did not dream of being a pink princess, especially after another stupid boy in elementary school told me I couldn’t play kickball ’cause I’d end up crying if I got hit.
I whooped that boy’s butt in kickball and smacked him in the face with the tetherball.
He shut up after that. 😉
Once upon a time…
While it isn’t possible to be some things, it is possible to shoot for the stars and to dream big.
Just don’t let that stupid boy you can’t do it.
