To be honest Drew, that would have been a good question if asked when I was about 5 or 6 years old. Today being 31 I no longer have an American Dream. I do on the other hand have a simple goal every waking day of my life to accomplish.
I have lost the urge to run my own business, I was 15 when I wanted that.
I have no need for recognition for being a recording artist; that started when I was 16.
I no longer have the urge to get married and have kids. That started when I was 15.
I no longer urge for millions of dollars, started when I was 18.
Long story short, by the time I turned 19 I realized that all that was a big pile of shit too stinky and steep for me to give up my sense of being for.
I did find my dream and passion; peace of mind and happiness. This for me is the most prize possession any one man or women could have.
It is the ability to think straight during the hardest hour.
To know the difference between doing things right and doing the right thing.
Its the ability to keep an open mind, while sticking to the values that are close to your heart.
It is the ability to create options and opportunities for ones self even if statistically you where not meant to have them based on where your from or not from.
Last but not least, to obtain the ability to love ones self despite ones flaws, illnesses and defects.
These objectives have taken the place of what I use to see as the American Dream.
