I’ve been asked to write about my “dream” today. Am I living it? Is it all I thought it would be? Quite honestly, it’s something I’ve been thinking of even before getting the opportunity to write about it. Sometimes I feel like an old soul because I am only 27, and sometimes I get stuck into a mentality of thinking, “Is this it? Is this what my life will be like forever? Will I really make in the low $30Ks ALL MY LIFE?!”
So every once in awhile, it’s good to dream. Big or small, it’s necessary to strive for something better in order to keep improving and working hard. That’s the attitude I approach my career in because sometimes I feel stressed and like I will never get to advance or earn more money, but I know that by working hard and improving my skills, the dreams I have will hopefully come true.
My dreams as I am approaching 30 revolve around being able to afford to travel, being able to afford to pay off my student loans and being able to afford that new SUV I’ve been lusting after for 3 years now. I thought it would happen this year at Christmas, and like some of my dreams, they’re just not going to happen right when I hoped they would.
But they will happen someday.
And then there are those fun dreams that will likely never come true like hopefully getting to meet celebrities I adore (Jennifer Lopez, I’m talking to you!), or winning an HGTV home makeover or simply fitting in a single digit jeans size. Oh, and winning the lottery, of course. Those are fun dreams— Harmless, fun, and great conversation starters.
For me, dreams keep me going even when I don’t feel like I can push myself anymore. Dreams keep me inspired. Dreams give me hope for something better.
As of today, I continue working away at my dreams, big and small, by staying positive, helping others and relishing in the dreams that do come true. And I get to chronicle some of them here on these very pages you’re reading.
