All young children go through a stage where they have big dreams of one day becoming an actor, a doctor, a nurse or something extra special but as they age, their dreams tend to be put on the back burner and replaced by school grades and college prep.
Hubby and I have always encouraged our kids to dream big, to think big and to go out and get what they want. We’ve praised them, even when they’ve failed. As long as they’ve tried their best, that’s all that matters. Kids need positivity in their lives— it helps build their self-esteem and it gives them the courage to make their dreams a reality.
Konica Minolta, an industry leader in Business Technologies, especially Production Printing, wants to celebrate extending children’s imaginations and encouraging big dreaming with the “Giving Shape to Ideas” initiative. As a piece of this, the brand created a “Dream Printer,” where children in a picturesque New York state park could approach a unique printer and share with it what they most wanted to be when they grow up.
I told you it was COOL… how did the printer know what those kids wanted to be? And how did it draw them in the proper attire? Amazing! Those kids sure were baffled. hehee!
I know my own children would have loved to see THEIR big childhood dreams come true. Dani’s dream was she wanted to be a veterinarian, Gina’s dream was to become a famous actress, and Derek wanted to be a professional dirt bike rider.
So, how has their dreams panned out? Dani is now a vet tech (that’s pretty close), Gina is working toward becoming a licensed pharmacist, and Derek wants to be a physical trainer. These are still great careers but not exactly what they wished for years ago.
** Feel free to share the awesome video above and help the children of today make their dreams a reality tomorrow. **
