“I participated in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting (#MC) on behalf of Konica Minolta. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating”
When I was young I wanted to be an astronaut. When later I realized that I could go farther in the universe if I became a writer, I knew it was that first desire that made me realize dreams were not just dreams, but possibilities. There is always the ability to rise within yourself, within the occasion and within life itself through pure perseverance and the will of hope. Which is why it is important to not only allow our children to dream, but to dream beyond what may even seem capable.
I know for a fact that once upon a time people thought cellphones and DVDs were ‘dreams’ and that there are people older than me who would have imagined washing machines and microwaves the same way. Dreams are what made these things possibilities and who knows what possibilities the future holds until we open up our own minds and give in to our children’s imaginations.
My youngest wants to become a fireman… and some days a police man or a monster truck driver. He’s 5 and has lots of big dreams just like all the other millions of children around the world. And a really amazing thing happened when Konica Minolta decided to help make children’s dreams a bit more real with what they call the Dream Printer.
This is a beautiful project that was designed to encourage children that the more they imagine the more their dreams take shape and is created under the initiative of “Giving Shape to Ideas”. I love seeing the children’s faces in the video when their dreams come out of the Dream Printer and it just makes you realize how important it is to be a part of that blossoming hope inside their hearts. You should visit the gallery of ‘dreams’.
Please take a moment to share this video. There is no more important time than now for people to see how important it is that our future, these beautiful dreamers, are given encouragement to keep believing.
