My Dream of Being a Dolphin
When I was a kid, I heard a question over there:
What would you like to be when you grow up?
I was not impressed by the *...what I wanted to be...but by the concept "big". Magically and instinctively, the term invited me to look at the sky and also at the sea.
To be "great" would be a challenge in my life. You can't become great without a process, I thought immediately. To become big I would have to adopt the behavior of a dolphin for example, my favorite pet.
To become big I would want to be like that aquatic animal with special characteristics within a diverse ecosystem. I would like to be a dolphin because of its great capacity to solve problems. Helping others was an anchored thought.
Dreaming of becoming a dolphin indicated a long road, full of obstacles, but one that I could intelligently get out of.
From this question, my dream became a reality. I became a mother, I nursed my calf as a dolphin does. I kept myself alert with my little one by diving into a semi-warning state like a dolphin does to protect its calf, so I did with my baby.
Later, with effort, studies, dedication, perseverance and persistence I got my degree in sociology, that made me a sociable and cooperative being, another attribute that the dolphin has. I learned to live in community as he does.
Throughout the years, I had to live the technology revolution, adapt to it, it was necessary. I got then an ocean where to communicate, where to continue learning the language of a dolphin to transmit my ideas effectively, to continue growing and enriching my knowledge, I got with steemit.
My dream of becoming a dolphin on this platform has become longer than I imagined, obstacles in my context have decided this. Even so I still dream of that prize of becoming a dolphin that comes closer and interacts, collaborates and shares with all the users of the network to extend a helping hand.
I want, just like a dolphin, to recognize myself when I see a mirror image demonstrating some awareness of myself about how to act with myself and others on this valuable platform.
