Let’s talk about our dreams—what do you really dream about? How do you envision yourself? Do you still want the same things? What and who do you wake up for?
Easy questions, difficult answers. To be honest, I haven’t really met anyone who have it all figured out. A completely normal thing if you ask me because I truly believe that it is the uncertainty that gives life its own meaning. Without it, we would be living our lives doing the same thing every single day. Like a playlist with only one song in it.
As for me— I have been dreaming of flying. As cliché as it may sound, I wanted to see the world for myself. I want to get lost in a new city, laugh with complete strangers, take a million photos and so much more! I feel suffocated within the four corners of a room. I need the whole world to breathe. So to feed that hunger, I tried my luck to become a flight attendant, which at the time was the only way I know to achieve my dreams. I went to a handful of assessments but to no luck. Every single time, I felt like I was in a competition for the Miss Universe crown. So I put that dream “on hold” and started a corporate job. Got lucky and had the chance to work here. Today, if you ask me if I still want the same things, my answer is yes and no. Yes to traveling the world and no to chasing the wrong things. I realized that there are a million other ways to achieve the same dream. You just have to look at a different perspective and find ways that will work for you. Just never ever give up on your dreams!
How about you? What do you dream about?
