One thing I've learnt from growing up: things don't always pan out how you dreamt they would. I had a few aspirations when I was a wee lad that never came to be. Probably the foremost was my ambition to become a professional footballer. My dad had all the signs of a good career forming, in youth football, until he was struck by an illness at age 17. His love for the game carried on to me but unfortunately, after only managing to play for a few local youth team, I realised I wasn't going anywhere and gave up completely after a couple of problems with one of my toes developed. What were/are your childhood dreams? Have any of your greatest ones come true [yet]?
