Childish dreams

When I was a little girl I dreamt of having a pearl necklace and be like Barbie. Barbie lived with Ken and her beautiful dog. Well I got Barbie and Ken but I never got a pearl necklace nor did I get the dog. I played with Barbie for a few years and enjoyed her company.

And for me that was happiness. Happiness of a little girl with no special dreams, except becoming a singer or a cashier in the local supermarket (how I got the idea I don’t know).

Do you remember when you where a little child and how easy it was to dream then? We didn´t need much to make us happy and today our kids, if you have any, are(almost) just the same. Unfortunately today we have a tendency to believe that we have to buy our kids things to make them happy. Happiness is not because you have a lot of toys or are given things all the time. Happiness is so much simpler than that.
I try to remind myself of that as often as I can.

What was your dream when you where a child?
