This week’s cool blue writing prompt was about dreams. How a person can have dreams for their own self, for their city, community, country, planet and humanity as a whole. Until recently I didn’t really have any dreams. I didn’t dream of being anything and I didn’t have any hope that my life would be any diferent than it was. The darkness that surrounded me and blinded me was thick and consumed me in ways I didn’t know was possible. My life was about survival, and in may ways it’s still about survival, but now I have a destination in mind. I’m no longer surviving from one moment to the next. Battling the monster in front of me and then waiting to see which new monster will appear before me.

I’m charging forward. I finally believe that I can be more than what the toxic people around me have told me I am. I finally have  a dream, a vision of the person that I want to be. Not only do I have  that vision, but I have a plan for obtaining my vision. It’s been hard trying to navigate the new terrority I seem to find myself in. I’ve never believed I had any value or worth. I never believed I could contribute positively to the society around me. I never believed that I could be “somebody”. That I am somebody. It’s been a very rough few last weeks. I’ve changed much and I have a long way to go still. As my dreams for myself change, so do the ones for those around me. I want to share with others the important lessons that I’ve learned. I want toshine a little light on those who live in the darkness.
