Have you ever wished to be someone you are not?
Have you ever found yourself dreaming to be the character that is far beyond what you ever imagined to be?
You watch way too many movies, you might quickly say.
For starters, I wished to be as effortlessly beautiful as my cousin’s Barbie Doll when I was 10. ( My cousin’s because I never owned one, geez, ’twas so expensive back then!) Barbie was the so-called eptiome of a perfect woman with her long and semi-curly blond locks, shapely legs, evenly toned skin, pretty chiseled nose and curvaceously slim body that would allow her to wear fancy and fashionable wardrobe.
Well, today, this infamous doll could still probably be something that every little girl wishes to look like when she grows up, but at least , more and more individuals have opened their eyes and become wise enough to know that not all are blessed with such great bod~~ some plump, some too thin, short, tall, dark-skinned… etc .
And what about our favorite superheroes? Come on, don’t be shy, admit it that once in you life, you have secretly wished you had some power to teleport and travel through space and time. I want to have that power too, and been wondering like forever if that be ever possible.
We have seen some kids in school who were bullied and abused so bad by their ‘monster’ classmates, ‘evil’ neighborhood kids ; and cruel and mean step/and or biological parents . I bet these kids swore hard, wishing they were gifted with the power to transform into raging and beastly characters such as the ones in those games today called Warcraft and the like.
Not a few kids, too, may have thought about having the ability to be fiery dragons, spewing fire to anyone who tries to make fun or hurt them.
It is just funny how we come so vivid, creating wild imagination in our heads like a giant LCD TV. But we get past that, we mature, we grow up and see things as they are and deal with them as realistically as possible. And sadly though, some people never moved on and just remained stuck in their playland indefinetely.
I never did grow up to be like Barbie but I feel good about myself and the people around me.
And to the well-meaning ninja dragons out there, keep kicking asses and kill the bullies!
