Do you still remember what was your dream when you were 5 years old?

I could not remember exactly what was my dream when I was 5 years old. All I know is that ever since I was a kid, all I want is to travel abroad. I want to land a job that will give me a chance to make my dream come true. I felt happy that even though I still don't have a job that makes me travel the world, I was able to travel abroad last 2015. It is not a long term vacation. I always need to go back in my country for my mom and my job. On the other hand, I do not give up my hope that someday I can travel continuously into the different parts of the world. Do you still remember you dream when you were a kid? Have you materialized that dream of yours already or just like me you are still working on it?

I think being a child does not depart from us even we grow old.

@miniam Haha. I feel the same here. My boyfriend sometimes tells me I am more like a kid rather than a woman because I love Disney Movies and going to amusement parks.

Remembering about dreams at 5. Oh gosh. Can't seem to remember. You remember? You have a good memory. 5. Lets see. That would be around 1978. Born in the 70's. Hmm. Can't recall. If you do then you're truly blessed. God bless you.

Oddly enough, my dreams have changed many times. Even my dream of what I wanted to be when I was a teenager has changed. Now, being an actress... really doesn't appeal to me at all lol! I even had the roll all picked out.

@Hate2Iron I do understand. When I was a child, I wanted to be a nurse. But when I found out that I have to dissect a frog and touch bloods, I gave up on that dream. I don't want to be a nurse anymore.

@annierose LOL... I had the nurse ambition for a while and I even volunteered at a hospital on our Easter break in grade nine I think it was. That was enough for me. I think that is when I decided that I wanted to be an actress lol!

You do have a wonderful dream. I do hope you are able to travel far and wide in the future. I always wanted to be a teacher, and I was a teacher for 30 years. If I had it to do over again, I would have been a veterinarian.

Yes, I remember very well, I wanted to be a ballerina (ballet dancer). My dream was to wear those beautiful white dresses, the ballet shoes and dance at the La Scala theater in Milan. I have not materialized my dream and I cannot even understand why I had this weird dream.

Whenever I see ballet dancers, I also wish I could also dance just like them.

I don't think.I would have had any ambitions when I was that young. In later years I wanted to be a fireman or work in some other branch of the emergency services. I think I knew quite young that I wanted to be a writer and that has been achieved, starting from my early 20s.

Being a writer is one of my dreams too but not when I was 5. I think it started when I was in high school. I forgot that dream when I went to college and now, it is coming back again.

I am not sure if I was 5 when I dreamed about this but I know I was still too young then. In my dream, I went home and it was weird because it's not a person which was there that welcomed be but a sock (LOL) And that sock talked to me and said that there's no one home. I cried because my family is no longer there. After how many years, when I had already graduated in college, I went home and suddenly remembered about that dream of mine when I was younger and it's like it came true that there's no one home. But of course, that sock is not there. Hihihi! My parents were out of the country that time and also my sister who was also working abroad. My brother was also working at a nearby town so he's not home during daytime.

I don't think I thought about jobs when I was five years old. In the area where I lived there was no kindergarten, and what I wanted to do was go to school like my big sister.
