Do you still dream? I used to. I used to dream all the time when I was younger. I was brimming with hope for the future, and like an old stone standing against the ocean waves, my self has eroded to something very different today from where I started.
From what I can tell SK-II is some sort of makeup line or something.. but wow they make great little documentary shorts that expose a lot of cultural stigmas and practices.
The video below was especially good as well; it really hit home for me. A nearly complete part of me doesn’t remember what my dream used to be, I wouldn’t know how to dream if I tried. You get older and life changes a person from imagining the impossible to a life of subsistence where you stop dreaming about 10 years, 20 years, and you only think about tomorrow.
When you’ve lived enough years you learn to give up on dreams. A heart can break only so many times before it doesn’t mend, and healing is harder to do the older you get. I’d like to believe that I still have a dream, but I wouldn’t know what it looked like if revealed itself. And I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t take the risk if the opportunity presented itself. My only dream left is to wish that my child has a dream of her own and overcomes hurdles that I could not.
…I don’t sleep well anymore. Maybe it’s because I don’t dream anymore.
