Have you accomplished your “dreams?” I know to some of us, that may seem like a trick question. It’s not. And have you ever noticed, that the moment we’re asked about our “dreams” we immediately go back to our childhood? It’s like we have this mental checklist we need to look over. Only until recently did I really sit back and think about the dreams I had as a child.
There were dreams of one day being a veterinarian, then a lawyer, and then a model. I laugh at that last one too! Ididn’t see any Latinas doing these things when I was kid. But, there’s a dream that I still carry with me and that’s living in New York City. I just can’t seem to shake that one. Maybe it’s the vibe or life of the city that’s calling me. One day ladies…
I do know there’s one dream that I’m definitely accomplishing and that’s writing. My dad used to say that he knew I’d be a writer one day. I was “that kid” who would give out class photos and I’d write a huge paragraph on the back of the picture. LOL! Go figure.
No I haven’t published any books, not sure if I will, but I have been blogging for over five years and I’m now doing freelance work. I’m not on any bestseller’s list and I’m no millionaire, but what I write makes me happy. Whenever I see something I’ve written published online, I kind of have to pinch myself. Whether one or 100 people read it, this is something I wrote! This little Latina from Pomona, California.
I’ve realized that “dreaming” isn’t about pleasing others. It’s about satisfying yourself and attaining a goal in life. And you can have more than one dream too! There are no limits! Your dream can be simple or extravagant, it’s up to you. There’s one dream that’s a constant-traveling the world. This is one I’ll probably try to attain until the day I die.
