The other day, I looked up to see my 3-year-old daughter dragging my 5-month-old daughter on her back along the floor. By her hands! Of course, I quickly put a stop to that, but I also (perhaps foolishly) asked the perpetrator what she thought she was doing.
Needless to say, it's pretty hard to get cranky at your child when you're struggling not to laugh. And baby was fine, thank goodness...
That little incident got me thinking though. My oldest girl was thinking big, seeing possibilities rather than improbabilities. She knew my youngest couldn't even crawl yet, let alone walk, but she still dared to reach for the stars. In a manner of speaking.
That's what I'm doing as well. Reaching for the stars in my dream of becoming a published author. Hopefully, though, my dream won't be as impossible to achieve as a 5-month-old baby going for a walk with her sister!
Do you think big? What's your dream? Have you set concrete goals or milestones to keep you on track, or do you prefer to look at the big picture rather than the smaller details?
