A Dream Come True

By Elaura, age 16, California

When you were a little girl I'm sure you dreamt of true love and Prince Charming taking you away. I know I did. I always used to dream of what I wanted my true love to be like. I would always call him "my dream boy". I used to say that I was going to have the best boyfriend in the whole wide world. I would dream of all the qualities my true love would have.

No matter what, I would always dream of him. I never lost hope of my dream boy. When I got to high school it became hard because boys were not what I expected them to be like. I went in and out of bad relationships.

During my sophomore year I made a promise to God and mostly to myself that I would not get a boyfriend until I truly knew for sure that he was my dream boy. All of my friends would say that I was just wasting my time waiting for my dream boy because he did not exist. No matter what everybody would say I didn't let them get to me. I still waited and kept looking for my dream boy.

I am glad to say that I finally met my dream boy, Luis. I knew him for a while before we started dating, and I knew for a fact that Luis was my dream boy.

I proved everyone wrong who ever said that he did not exist. He does exist and it is a dream come true. I am just happy that I stuck to what I wanted and never let anybody's negativity change my mind. I have never been in love before Luis, and I am glad that I have the been lucky enough to experience the feeling of being loved. Luis has every one of those qualities I dreamt he would have. When I look into his I get lost because I know he is the only one who can love me right. It feels good to know that he is the boy of my dreams. I am glad that it is Luis I waited to give my heart to.

Well, the whole point I am trying to get across from my story is that if you have a dream then go out and get it. Don't stop until you get what you want. If you have a dream make it come true. If people say it's impossible, don't listen to them. Anything is possible. Do this for yourself and for your happiness. Don't give up on your dreams so fast. You never know what might happen.

"If you can imagine it, you can achieve it;
if you can dream it, you can become it."
