When we are young we have big dreams. We want to grow up and be an astronaut, a dancer or a professional sports player. Most of us end up doing something else, but some of us never let go of those initial dreams.
You can tell when it’s more than a passing phase. It becomes a passion. It takes over all areas of our life. The truth is, we would never have the courage to pursue these huge dreams if it wasn’t for the people in our lives that supported us along the way.
There are friends, teachers, and role models that help us get through the steps. But there are two people who support us more than anyone else: our parents. They are there from the very beginning, telling us that we can do anything we set our minds to.
