Big Dreams, Big Feelings

Flashback to me in second grade, when my primary form of transportation was cartwheels instead of walking.

(Seriously, I cartwheeled ALL THE TIME… Remind me to add this to the list of “How did they not know I was Neurodivergent?”)

Anyways…I distinctly remember cartwheeling around the house one day while the Victoria’s Secret fashion show was on TV.

I stopped to excitedly exclaim to my mother that I wanted to be famous and that someday, I was going to be a model.

Her response was, “Oh sweetie, you’re too short to be a model.”

*Dreams. Immediately. Crushed*

In that split second, she planted the seed of an idea that would stop me from pursuing numerous aspirations and dreams over the years…

The idea that there are things I may want to do, but can’t because of something about me that I cannot change.
