During childhood, we all dream of what we want to become when we grow up, or what we want to do in the future. I remember my childhood dreams far too well, and back then if somebody asked me what my dreams were, my typical answer would be that I wanted to become a bank owner, businessman, doctor or pilot. There were many other things that I dreamed of becoming or doing. In fact, whenever I saw something new, something interesting, I would dream of becoming like that or getting it. However, for me, merely having dreams was never enough; I wanted to live them, right there in that very moment. Perhaps, that is why I have always considered myself more of a daydreamer and it all started when I was just a child.
When I was a child I would feel sad about the fact that I would not be able to live my dreams until I was grown up. Of course, that did not stop me. All I had to do was close my eyes and imagine that my dreams had come true. I knew I was far from accomplishing my dreams by a long shot, but being able to picture myself living a whole new dream every day simply by closing my eyes brought a smile on my face. Day dreaming, or rather making my dreams come true, even if it was just in my imagination, made me feel happy when I was sad. It gave me a unique sensation of happiness that I never felt before. In this whole new world, I was able to imagine myself accomplishing my dreams one by one, and it allowed me to escape reality.
I was just 12 years old when I first started living out my dreams and daydreaming to imagine that they have come true. There was this competition named “Battle of the Books” that I happened to have heard of, and I imagined what it would be like to participate in it and win. I have been fond of playing sports ever since I was a child, especially basketball and swimming, and often I would dream of becoming some sort of a famous basketball player or a world class swimmer. I always wanted to help people, so once I dreamed of what it would be like I became a doctor and could save lives. After watching the movie Life Size, I could not help myself of owning a Barbie city just like the one I saw in the movie. I would often look at pictures of children’s rooms in magazines and dream of having rooms just like those. Above all, I would always dream of being loved by everyone and loving all those around me, and not having any enemies.
I guess I had quite a vivid imagination as a child. I felt full of life whenever I pictured myself living my dreams. It was like I had my own imaginary world where all of my dreams would come true with each passing day. Of course, reality ultimately catches up with all of us, but that has not stopped me from daydreaming once in a while, and I still intend to at least make some of my childhood dreams come true. One thing that reality has taught me is that in this world you must work hard if you want your dreams to become reality. It certainly is not as simple and easy as my childhood dream world, but I do not intend on giving up on my dreams. One way or the other, I will keep trying until some of my dreams come true. Perhaps, I may never be able to fly since gravity will probably never let me, but surely I can still dream of becoming an athlete or any of the other professions that I dreamed of pursuing, and try to live my childhood dreams for real, this time.
