Lucky

{i'm lucky because i grew up believing i could do anything... become anything... my gender was never used to limit my thinking... to decide what i could achieve, dream, do... i gardened with my dad... played soccer/cricket/darts/swam in dams/rode horses/ climbed trees/ dreamed of becoming a vet, an artist, a tennis player, a doctor... and when i became a doctor and then decided that it wasn't what i wanted to be, not once did my parents constrain me by their dreams/ideals/ideas... they have always supported me in whatever i have attempted...  i'm so lucky that i never had parents who told me that i couldn't because i'm a girl... i would like to give my girls the same gift.. the gift of dreaming... the gift of believing that they can do whatever they want even if they are girls...}
