I always get slightly embarrassed when a commercial gets me choked up because you would think I’d be able to keep it together for the span of 30 to 60 seconds, but when something touches me it touches me and I get what my mom calls a nudo en la garganta.
That’s exactly what this Honda “Space for Dreams” spot below did to me, it made me get a big ol’ nudo en la garganta and I think it will do the same for you.
It’s like the spot lets you see into a young girl’s daydream, a dream she has while riding in the back of her parents CR-V. It’s beautiful because you can tell that she feels supported by her parents, that they’ve created the space for her to not only dream, but dream big and she does dream big. Her dreams are out of this world.
This spot brought back to me some of the most magical moments of my childhood when I’d be in the backseat of the car while my mother was driving. I remember feeling suspended between time and place as I watched the world through the windows. My mind would roam, I’d start imagining what I would like to be, what I would like to have, what I would like to do. Sometimes the moment would feel so perfect that I wouldn’t want it to end. I felt safe, I felt comfortable and I had so much going on in my mind and my imagination that my soul felt full and happy. It felt absolutely perfect.
Now, I’m the mother driving two beautiful daughters around and the biggest gift I want to give them is HOPE. I truly believe that hope comes from having dreams, from having those dreams nurtured, from believing that you can achieve your dreams and from knowing that you can keep dreaming and achieving for the rest of your life. I want my little girls to have moments where they look out the car window and feel suspended between time and place, moments when their minds are so busy dreaming that their souls feel full and happy.
Okay, I’m getting all choked up again!
