Dreams are continuously changing and they mostly depend on the moment of our life we are in. There are people that experience a huge amount of various dreams during their life and there are also the ones that are consistent in what they want and work for that purpose until they finally reach it.

As far as I am concerned, my journey with my dreams is from the first scenario. I had experienced a lot of moments in my life where my dreams suddenly shifted from a point to another one that was completely in another direction.

There are a lot of dreams that were just passing by in my life, but there are 4 of them that stayed with me a long time and showed me the beauty of change.

  1. My first dream: to become a dancer

I personally think that everyone has that first dream that turned out to be just a childhood passion that is completely different from the goal they have during their youth. For me, it was dancing.

During my childhood, I traveled with my family to Spain and there was one night with live music at the hotel we stayed in, and, as a child, I did not have any problem with dancing being surrounded by strangers. That was a moment I felt very good and peaceful and suddenly I wanted to become a dancer.

Afterward, I went to a few dance classes, but this so-called passion from that time did not last that long. Or at least, I was not that involved in putting effort into this. I still wanted to become a dancer, but without the work to become that. So, this was basically impossible.

After a short time, I moved on to my next dream and forgot about that one very easily. The fact that is just very interesting to me is how something that can seem to be so meaningful to you during a certain period of time can turn into a very insignificant activity to you.

As a child, I think that it is completely normal to experience this kind of passion shift because curiosity is always setting in and we have the urge to discover a lot of new things.

  1. Horse riding – a dream I had for a long time

My next dream after dancing was horse riding. I wanted to make a career out of this. This was happening around the time I was 9 years old. Horses were always my favorite animal and they still are. I find them very beautiful and special and I enjoy watching them and being around them.

For me, it was very hard to be next to animals for a very long time, but around horses, I have always felt safe. One time for my birthday my father took me to a horse-riding place and I just loved the feeling of freedom I experienced.

This dream stayed with me for a longer period. I think I gave up on this dream when I was around 11 years old. The beauty and, at the same time, the oddity of that childhood dream was the fact that I wanted to do these activities, but I did not do anything in this direction. It was like somehow, I imagined that the dreams would become reality magically and I will suddenly be happy.

Only later in my teenage years, I have realized that those were not actually my goals, were just activities that as a child I felt good while doing them, but as a child, they felt like way more than this. I was so psychologically involved in forming an image of my life doing these activities that they seemed so true to me.

  1. Hotel manager – something that I would still like to do one day

After these two childhood dreams, I had experienced a long period of not knowing what to do with my life. I just loved a lot of school lectures, I enjoyed a lot of free time activities, but there was not anything that I enjoyed that much so I would dream about doing it full time someday.

When I had finally started to have a new dream was around the time when I was 16 years old. After traveling to various locations and seeing different types of hotels and hotel staff, watching Gilmore Girls, and seeing Lorelai so involved in running her own inn, and seeing my mother talking so passionately about tourism, I have developed a new passion for this field.

For a long time, I did not talk about that dream to anyone. I just researched the field and the opportunities I had for studying and then working and was very keen on becoming a hotel manager someday.

This was the first dream I had actually done something for. My first year of studies in university was about tourism and leisure management. Later on, I have realized that I don’t really want to do that for the rest of my life, but the passion for this field still exists and it would be amazing to do it at some point, but it is no longer my main dream.

  1. Spanish teacher – a passion that is now turning into one of my main goals

My passion for Spanish has always existed and I think that it was one of the few passions that no matter what was happening in my life, has always stayed there. I have developed this passion from the first moment I heard a song in Spanish when I was around 4 years old. Afterward, I have traveled to Spain with my family and I learned to count in Spanish on my own.

As I was growing up, I had a lot of other interactions with Spanish and this language, and the country itself turned into one of my biggest passions. Now, I am studying foreign languages in university and Spanish is the one that I want to work with in the future.

I am not 100% sure that I want to be a Spanish teacher or some other type of job that involves Spanish, but I can say that I am certain that Spanish will be part of my future career.
