When each of my daughters were born I spent ages wondering what they are going to be when they grow up and what kind of person they are going to become when they are older.
As each of their personalities began to shine, I couldn’t stop dreaming of their future. My eldest is a natural leader. A love of teaching, story telling and creative thinking. My middle daughter loves to take charge but with the support and encouragement from her friends. She is a team player and a princess in the making. My youngest is starting to show similar traits as the eldest. I can’t wait to see her personality come through.
I have pledged to tell my daughters that they must work hard for money but working isn’t everything. Yes you need to work for something and you should never expect anything handed to you on a plate (unless they marry a prince) and they should never, never, never give up on their dream. I want them to go for what makes their heart sing. One chance at living life on earth and they should never have any regrets or dread.
What did you want to be when you were little?
