“When I Grow Up” is a very short and wonderful video about the power of dreams. The story follows the imagination of a young boy and his dreams for his future. The message is a nice reminder to all of us, young and old, to never stop following our dreams.
Here are lines from the video:
Life is an adventure filled with amazing possibilities.
How about becoming a world famous explorer?
You could be an underwater adventurer.
Maybe even a hero of the untamed wild west.
You could always travel with the circus.
So explore a world that’s waiting to be found.
And though you may fall or the going gets tough, keep pushing on because there’s a world full of mysteries for you to solve.
So fire your engines.
Gather your courage.
Let go of fear.
And dig deep inside.
Because it’s never too soon to shoot for the moon.
So chase down those dreams.
