"What would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?" ~ Robert Schuller
I have always loved this quote because it stirs the dreamer within me (admittedly that's not a difficult thing to do). We've all had a dream profession...something we began thinking of in childhood or adolescence. Slowly, over time and into young adulthood, many of us begin to see our dream as unattainable. Was it truly unattainable or did we just begin to view it as urealistic? Don't get me wrong, not everyone lets go of their dream. But somewhere along the way, a lot of us do. From the time I was a child, my dream was to work with endangered wildlife. I even had it narrowed down to four specific areas haha!!
- Working with endangered wildlife in the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil
- Studying the ecosystem of the Great Barrier Reef off the Northeast coast of Australia
- Working with the endangered wildlife of the Serengeti National Park in Africa
- Or working with the Mountain Gorilla population in the Virunga Mountains of Uganda
What was your childhood dream? Did you or are you currently pursuing it?
