I thought back to childhood today.

One day you grow up and it is no longer acceptable to see what isn’t there.  What was once imagination becomes an intolerable surrealism, and the world begs us to see the world as it is rather than how it could be.  One day a limit is placed on how far the mind flies and how courageously the heroes fight for dreams that never before seemed out of reach.   That day is different for everyone, and sometimes I feel it is better if we never grow up.

I thought back to childhood and I thought about today.

    Hi, pretty neat and pleasant blog you’ve created here! :)

    I could totally relate to the limit you’re talking about, but the question is does that lead to our becoming or unbecoming, as we’re finally capable of placing reality checks on our ventures and at the same time too much of reality might place caps on our potential?

    Just a thought, felt like sharing :)

    That’s a great point. I think it leads to both, depending on the person and the circumstances. For the vast majority of people, in fact, reality checks are what allows them to be successful in their employment, having a family, and retiring. However, to be unlimited is something that we don’t really understand in our societal paradigm. In the perspective of society, these reality checks are a good thing, but what if we are just living in a shell and any reality check at all is a cap on unlimited potential? All I can say for sure is that you and I and everyone on this earth should never stop dreaming.
