Hi loves! I recently went out shopping and whilst walking down the lanes just wondering around I heard a little girl say to her mum and her friend 'Mum you know what, when I grow up I wanna become something big!' Her mum replied 'I'm sure you will' turning around to her friend saying 'Oh she is such a dreamer, she always has her head in the clouds' and I immediately thought 'how rude?!'
Back home I couldn't stop thinking about this little girl picturing her perfect future and thought when did the word 'dreamer' become something bad?
I personally think being a dreamer as a child is immensely important. In fact, having dreams no matter how old you are is important, it keeps you going. I've always been a dreamer and my whole life I've had people, even family members, tell me to keep my feet on the ground, to start living in reality. But that was something I never could.
Of course I know that the dreams you have as a child may not be the dreams you have as an adult but I certainly think that some dreams will always stick with you. Take me for an example, from a very early age I knew that some day I wanted to leave the country and experience the world. I also knew that I wanted to be part of the entertainment industry (not necessarily in front of the camera though) and by the age of fifteen I had it all figured out. I had a plan - I wanted to become an artist manager travelling the word with the artists I would manage and move to England to start fresh. But even at that age I still had family members who wanted to talk me out of it and friends who laughed at me but I stuck with it and now I know it was all worth it. By now I already had the chance to work with one of the worlds biggest record label, got to know a bunch of important people in the industry and in October I'm gonna start my studies in music business at the university I always wanted to. Even though I still have a long way to go I know that some day I'm going to get there because I will never stop picturing this life until it turns into reality.
What I'm trying to say is that we shouldn't laugh when people dream cause we all to it. Just think about it. Did you ever think about what you would want to happen a year from now, a month from now or even a week from now. Yes? Guess what, that's called dreaming. That's why we should encourage the dreamers to keep going and to never stop dreaming. I mean what would life be like without dreams? Would we have a goal, an inspiration which keeps us going? I don't think so...
What do you think? Do you think we should be proud to be called a dreamer? Tell me about your dream in the comments no matter how big or small it is I would love to read what inspires you to keep going.
