My Dream is Shattered

Hello Everyone! 🙂

You might all be wondering why I titled my new post, “My Dreams are Shattered,” well I want to share with you guys a personal experience that I had when I was 15 years old and a Sophomore in high school, well my biggest dream was to be an actress because I always thought that acting out any different character and just being someone else, and reading story scripts was so fun and interesting to me that I did not think about becoming anything else, but an actress. I started taking a theater class in my Sophomore year to start learning the ins and outs of acting and theater. I can truly say that I did gain some valuable acting experience but I was so stubborn, on not realizing that a career in acting was not available for me right now, much less having parents who would not be able to support me financially. I had the wonderful experience of going to an acting and modeling audition that John Casablanca’s did, which is an acting and modeling school. I eventually got called back because the judges told me that I had potential to be an actress, but that I needed to take acting classes in their school in order to get the professional experience that I needed.

When they explained to my parents about the expensive costs of the classes, my parents quickly explained to me that I couldn’t take go to that school because it was too expensive, and they do not give financial help. Seriously I felt at that moment that my dream went shattering down. I tried convincing that acting is the career I want to do because I was deeply passionate about it, not because I wanted to be famous like Selena Gomez, but because it seemed fun and interesting. Despite my parent’s disapproval of me doing acting as a career I still took theater classes in high school and in college but later on I realized that my parents were right. Acting was just not my career, Jesus Christ has something in store for me much better. I might go back to acting in the future, but for right now I am going to focus on my writing because I know that I can easily do a career right now that is accessible and conveniently available to me right now. I am not going to give up on my life just because I could not realize my big dream of acting. I still like acting, I will see if in the future God brings to me that profession again.

Reading a small prayer brought me thinking back about that experience I went through, I hope this prayer also helps you find your purpose and profession in life with the help of God.

My Dream is Shattered

To the loving God
Who cares about my dreams:
Bless and restore me.
In my disappointment and
Sadness,
Help me remember
That you have a future full of
Hope for me.
Give me a new dream.
Amen.
-(The Catholic Youth Prayer Book)
