Ever since I was little, I always dreamed of becoming a doctor. I dressed up in my mother’s sky-blue nurse scrubs and put on her pink stethoscope to check my older brother’s heartbeat and lung sounds. I ran around the house imagining that I was in an emergency room full of sick and dying patients needing to go into surgery. I pictured myself running the world’s greatest hospital and diagnosing every kind of illness ever exposed to the world. Dreams are a powerful source that comes from within our heart. In fact, Sigmund Freud created the theory that says dreaming allows us to sort through unresolved, repressed wishes.
