These are things about life I find important and personal achievements. These things are universal; however they are very unique for each and everyone one of us. And to dream is so important. Because it gives you something to look forward to. Something to fight for. And these are things that are settled we should have. Not everyone feels that way. Not everybody wants these things. That's the truth and it doesn't mean it's bad or anything. It's just a choice. Personally, I find myself looking forward to these things. Things like:
1- A job
"Love what you do and do what you love."
Words to live by when choosing the career you want. Your job should be something that makes you proud and that makes you feel like your contributing to something bigger than yourself. Sometimes you'll have to do what you love in second place because you need something else to pay the bills. And even if that is so, as it happens a lot, you shouldn't lose hope. In life, if we don't have a drive, an ambition, a dream, then...we're just there. We need to be a part of the whole.
2- A house
This is one of my favorite topics to discuss. For me, a house is a sanctuary. It's where you can let your true self come out. It's intimate and vulnerable. And I have dreamed countless times of the house I want my body to live in. There are wood floorboards covering the ground and the place isn't very big but it's cozy. The windows are big, as many windows as possible because I want to let the light in always. There are at least two cats running around and my books are neatly decorating the shelves. The house always smells fresh and the sheets in the bed are clean and changed every week. We have colored bowls and mugs and it's a place of color and light and the kind of scent that makes it feel like home. We always walk barefoot. And it's a place where I'm happy.
Before you say anything, yes I know I dream a lot. But that only means I have goals. I have things to fight for. I have something to drive me forward! What does your dream house look like?
This one is important in the sense I want someone by my side, someone to love, someone to witness life with me. We don't necessarily need to get married. We only need to love each other. That's enough for me. Love should be enough.
4- Have a baby
Starting a family, now that's a big step! And I could not tell you how the prospect of it completely overwhelms me...with excitement! As a woman I am already very maternal, but me, myself am even more! I love children, often times more than people my age. Children are honest and they have an immense amount of love to give. They can be difficult at times but that is no reason to give up on them because their love is so rewarding!
When I hold a baby in my arms I am ready to burst with all the soft and all the sweet. And the other day the thought came into my mind that when I have a baby his crib will have to be in our room because I couldn't think of sleeping in a separate room from them. It's terrifying to think you'll be the one to teach a new human being all the values and principles you think they ought to have for when they go out into the world. And still, it's exciting!
Hopefully, this MyTake was interesting for you to read. If you want, tell me some of your dreams! What are the things you want to accomplish? You ought to think about this well! Thank you for reading!
