This story was inspired on a walk back from class. I saw a class of elementary school students sitting side-by-side on the entrance of the school. We’ve gotten an email saying that there will be students, but upon seeing them, it struck me that I once was that small and curious. Why did I let that curiosity go and become indifference? Plus, they were pretty cute.
Basically this story is about a little kid’s adventure with his class in a university. He’s so full of awe and inspiration that he quickly knows what he wants to do and a college student spontaneously decides to tell him to dream big. I really wanted to ensue the meaning of determination and the child-like awe that should carry onto our adult life since it helps us see life in a brighter light, move forward and add onto the world. Having a child-like awe is actually one of my new year’s resolution!
This story is my first time in a couple weeks writing a proper dialogue and setting up a story, so it probably appears a little choppy and at the same time, I tried to make the tone appear like a child. Blake and Jimmy were supposed to represent the people who discourage your dreams claiming a bunch of things like that you’re not the right age, you aren’t capable or you just shouldn’t do it, but like Rhett, you should power through.
To those who are feeling discouraged about their dreams, this story is for you. When it feels like you’re alone in pursing your dream, remember why you developed the dream in the first place. Power through the negativity and yes, things will not be easy, but it isn’t impossible to accomplish. Best of luck!
