I do not have dreams. I mean in the sense of imagining a destination vacation or prestigious college. I have goals and desires, yes. But there are very few things that would I can say that I dream about. I had no dream university or career.
But I am not without aspirations.
I must say that not having dreams does not mean I do not have expectations for my life. I have the expectation that life is not going to be full of grandeur; to live a meaningful life is going to entail many mundane tasks and times. Dreams can cause one to be discontent with the mundane thus constantly seeking to the next thrill. When dreams are actualized, emptiness ensues because the dream was not the end all that we are led to believed. Like sleep, dreams are fleeing.
