Dream About Who You're Gonna Be
After Forrest and Jenny sneak into her dorm room, Jenny shares her dream for the future. And she asks Forrest if he ever dreams about who he wants to be.
**-- HERE IS THE VIDEO TRANSCRIPT --** You'll aways be you, but your dreams can make you a different kind of you. Hi, I'm Steve Weber and I never dreamed of being Forrest Gump ... it just sorta happened. Today is scene 35 of the 94 best scenes and life lessons from the movie. I've put this series together to celebrate this year being the 25th anniversary of the movie. When Jenny snuck Forrest into her college dorm room, she shared her vision of who she wanted to be. A folk singer. Like Joan Baez. She asked Forrest if he ever dreamed about who he was gonna be? ... We have the ability to reinvent ourselves with our dreams. We'll always have our past as memories, but we have the ability to become a new version of ourselves. We have the ability to dream about who we're gonna be. When Jenny asked Forrest if he ever dreams about who he was gonna be, he naively asked, "Aren't I gonna be me?" She replied, "You'll always be you, just a different kinda you." It takes Gumption to dream about being a new kinda you. It takes Gumption to follow your dreams. Do you want to be more gump-like? ... Dream. Dream about who you want to be. And then follow your dream. Let's learn to live our lives with Gumption.
