What is your dream?
With all this talk of following and accomplishing the American dream, I came to wonder, what is MY dream?
Over the summer I worked full-time to come home, eat, and then go to bed. Repeat. I felt like I was in such a rut.
In watching political folk talk about ”the American dream,” I realized that I don’t think I have a dream, no destination in mind. Without that, I’m just living my life moment by moment with nowhere to go. Some might think that’s the way it should be, but I disagree.
For those of you who do have a dream, what is it and why?

I want solitude in nature and communion in creative expression. I want to empower people in times that they need encouragement and be a non-intrusive anchor of love for children exploring Earth. I want to cultivate physical discipline to display the beauty of the human will and I want to develop perspective into the chaotic patterns that leave the human spirit chained and despairing. I want to have parties where no one is afraid to be themselves.
my dream is to make everything in my own life an art that i can constantly improve upon. also, after this is accomplished, i dream of joining with other ‘artists’ of this caliber and forget about money to empower and inspire the light in the dark cities of the world. i dream of having an army who refuses to fight or treat any member as inferior or with rank. my dream is to connect the dreams i have when i sleep to the dream like state my waking life has become.
@racastillo, I just realized mine a few nights ago. I always knew but didn’t know exactly how to word it or whatever. I want to represent and idea. I want to represent the idea that you can do whatever you want if you put your mind to it. You can accomplish your dreams. I always knew I would be one of these people but didn’t know exactly how. Now opportunities are opening in the financial sector and in my musical career as well. I don’t care for fame but I want to share this idea with a global audience so I almost feel its necessary. I know I have the talent and intellect to achieve my goals. Visualize with a positive vibration and you can achieve and get anything you desire.
My dream is to make films that make a difference. If I changed the perspective of just one person I would feel accomplished but obviously my goal is to change as many people as possible. Film and television have had a massive effect on me and have helped me grow emotionally and spiritually and I would like to return the favour by doing the same to others.
Write the next big sci fi story, become a proficient guitarist/songwriter (can’t pick a genre though, used to be just punk but now I’m all over the place), get in shape, escape the rat race once and for all as a winner and not in jail or something like that, find the things I like to do that I feel are worthwhile, find more of other people’s works to appreciate.
But it looks like in the near future I’ll have to do a little time in the rat race, so I guess another of my goals is not letting work crush me with despair this time.
To synthesize a global community of the countless arts and social change. To create based on the flaws i see in the world, also how I would like to see the world and hopefully inspire some people on the way. I always dreamed of creating something innovative in the art world.
My dream is to be an adventurer after I am done with school (I sorta only finish school because otherwise I’d have to pay a lot of money, which would make a dependant). Every day when I am done working I try to see the free time as holiday, I travel on my board, by foot, bicycle, public transport etc, then get home eat, sleep chill w/e :).
I want to do this every day and live off of other people’s kindness and compassion, while trying to return a favor with my own kindness, compassion and trying to help them in w/e way I can.
I will experiment with this, to find out what works, after my internship.
I’ll be travelling to my friend in Valencia then travel to Florence to another friend, then I will hopefully in time, end up in Berlin to do my study abroad minor :)
My dream is nothing big really.
1. I want to be able to wake up on my own time.
2. I want to make enough money to support what I like to do, I don’t care about being rich, owning a fancy car or having a big house. I just want to support what makes me enjoy life and smile.
3. I like to be able to enjoy what I like to do at any given moment.
4. Enjoy my career or craft.
5. Live separate from society and it’s laws.
If I could achieve this my dream comes true. To be free and unbounded.
The American dream is just that, a dream, to keep your mind occupied with something “happy” in your imagination while you live a shit life in reality. Oldest trick in the book, most obvious name for it EVER, yet people don’t realize.
What is MY dream? A better world, where people are happier, stronger, smarter, and so on.
Where I can go outside and not get sad about how shitty lives people are living.
Where I can go outside and not be annoyed at how fucking stupid, lazy, weak, negative and ungrateful people are.
Where I can go outside and be met with things that are awesome and inspiring, instead of soulbreaking and horrible.
All my dreams about my personal life I have already fulfilled, I’m done with that stuff. I’ve got great friends, an amazing girlfriend, godlike health, the house I wanted, plenty of money, freedom, and all that jazz. I went out and earned what I wanted, and it wasn’t even hard despite wanting more than most people.
Having dreams and not fulfilling them is the VERY DEFINITION of extreme stupidity and inauthenticity.
If your dreams are not being fulfilled YOU ARE NOT BEING YOU:
