What is your dream?

2 years, 5 months ago

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?

My dream is to graduate as a Primary School Teacher and get a job as one.

I would love to, and it’s my dream, to teach children about social, physical and global education.

To make them aware of how to find happiness, how important health is for body and mind and the sheer amount of inequality and injustice in the world. And now only to complain about the problems, but how they, as humans, can be the change of the World.

It fucking irritates me how little time is spent on social education in schools. From my experience so far, the children are never taught about happiness, values or beliefs.

And thus, my dream is simple; to make children realise the awesome potential they have as human beings and how important happiness is.

My dream is mostly in the form of “shoulds” right now:

People should have enough food to eat, and I want to help them get it.
People should have a place to live, and I want to help them get one.
Food should be nourishing and not make us sick, and I want to help it be that way.
I shouldn’t take more of the earth’s resources than I need.
I should have time for recreation and self-development.
I should be free to live my life according to my own values as long as I’m not hurting anyone.
I should be prepared for a radical change in circumstances, like a natural disaster or a war, because worlds end all the time.

Basically, I want to help people, knit, grow food, love my family, hang out with my dog, work for money when I need to, and be reasonably secure in continuing to do the above until the universe shall see fit to feed me to the worms.

My dream is to find a place where i can live off the land, and I can finally satiate my wanderlust. A place where I can be one with nature and closer to my gods. No one would be able to stop me from doing what I have to do to survive.

To make the world a better place by creating the most compassionate and generous global peace that history has ever known.

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.

Write some poetry, possibly a book, play music for tons of people to hear, visit beautiful places on this planet, make a difference in society and improve the way people live, or better yet teach them how to LIVE.

@theskafish, Punk is the best place to start! I’d start with Black Flag because it’s slower tempo.

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.

To always be creating something, going somewhere, and having a good time.

And for people to understand the power they have, and to realise that what they are a part of is fucking amazing.

My dream is to make the most miserable bastard in the world laugh.

edit: Now that I think about it a little more, I could achieve becoming the most miserable bastard in the world quite easy.
