Dust off your Dream

Title IX turns 40 this year. It should come as no surprise that I remember June 23, 1972,  the day it became law. I stood earnestly before the console TV and watched the news story. Girls playing sports! Naturally, my precocious nine year old self was anxious to be a benefactor of this new legislation. Sadly, I was in college before I played any organized sports.

She changed the face of Little League Baseball

My parental unit was of the ‘don’t rock the boat’ generation and change doesn’t come quickly in small town America. However, I was desperate to play little league baseball.  After College I coached little league softball. It was my way of being able to do what I had wanted since I was nine and the man on the news told me I could!

That’s the thing with dreams. They don’t die just because you weren’t allowed to do something. There comes a time when as an adult you MUST address those dreams! It may not be exactly the same dream. Maybe it is the grown up version of your childhood desire. I’m not saying that every childhood dream is worth pursuing, I also wanted to be a tennis player one summer, but some dreams are life long. They speak to who you are. Those dream need to find their way to fruition. Turn your dream into a goal!

Perhaps your dream was put on hold while you devoted time to your family. Perhaps you were side tracked from pursuing your dream career. What ever your dream, find a way to make it a goal. Goals are just dreams with legs. So dust off your dream and give it some legs.
