Dreams

I never chased the dream, I designed it

Nasty C (I have huge crush on this man)

Lately, I have been embracing the fact that I want a beautiful nuclear family and what that means for me as a millennial ambitious black African feminist. I have been the girl who doesn’t understand why anyone would dream of being a housewife (I still struggle not to judge). Reading ‘The Defining Decade’ by Meg Jay gave me a new perspective about marriage and love. I have always been told that I need to focus on my books and not look at boys. Solid advice, right? Make sense, right? There is some sort of shame attached to wanting love at a certain age based on the advice that I have gotten throughout my life. I get that this advice comes from the right place where the worst thing that could happen to a woman is not to chase her dreams then wind up completely dependent on an abusive partner who she cannot leave (This is the story of many African women).

I am learning to add romantic love as part of my dreams and not something that I get to after being the great person I am meant to be. I am learning to permit myself to say that I have it all. I can have all that I have dreamed of. I recently to the amazing Maya Angelou’s poem, ‘I am Human,’ and the part where she talked about how if a human has done, then you can do it, then you can do it got me. (Y’all should really listen to it). These words would then be strengthened by something I heard in a motivational speech that if you dreamt it no matter how crazy, then it highly likely possible that’s how innovation. That’s how airplanes came to be. The Wright Brothers had listened scientists talk about how planes were not the possibility, but they chose to design their dream. (Motivational much🌚🌚🌚) All for a marriage?😂😂😂😂 To be fair, I would need it, I know too my stories about bad marriages, and I struggle to believe in love. So if I have dreamt of great love and I know people who have had such a love, I will get it.

I, Jackline Wanjira Njagi, commit to design a dream that says that I can have it all. The handsome, rich husband, beautiful kids, big car, lots of money in the bank, happiness, joy, and a legacy. I don’t know how it will all happen, but I will have it all. I have dreamt, so I am gonna get it. Odd, this post is going up on Valentines’ Day. Fate, is that you?

Anyways Happy Valentine’s Day💖💖💖

    As we grow, we get lots of advice and opinions on what life should be like but in time if we are lucky we discover how we want our lives to be. (I believe this to be freedom)

    Your dream of love and family is a beautiful one. May all your dreams listed at the end come true and more.

  4. Sorry I could not help but laugh! Please forgive my cynicism, but having been an addict of romanticism in my younger days. I payed the price, experimenting with several marriages and even more relationships, always in search of ta illusive mirage of romanticism. It took me long time to realise, as an artist and writer I was completely unsuitable for that mythical concept of romanticism. The muses did not allow any competition! So I am standing on the mountain of my shattered dreams of monogamy, happy family, long lasting relationships etc. However, I am grateful and highly satisfied with all those interesting, rich experiences on the way.

    1. jackie says:

      That sounds like quite the experience.

  5. Happy Valentine’s Day in Arrears Jackie! And a big Amen to all your dreams and ambitions. I really enjoyed this post and the positive vibes and oh my… I’m also a fan of Nasty C. In fact, that line was gotten from “Said” a collabo he did with Nigerian artiste, Runtown for Coca Cola.

    Cheers to more dreams.
