Dare to Dream?

“Do not lose hold of your dreams or asprirations. For if you do, you may still exist but you have ceased to live.” Henry David Thoreau

Dreams and Disappointment are like 2 neighbors who live under close vicinity. Does that mean that I'd stop dreaming? Well I did, actually. For as long as I can remember. When I was in college, all I dreamt of was to get good grades in 3 years of university exams. Did it happen? No. Did I give up? Totally! But, in my 3rd and final year when I was hit by the phobia that I am not going to get through my graduation at one shot, my best friend had hope in me. She helped me to build my confidence again that I can get through it.

Did I? Yes.

Post graduation years, I have been thinking about studying further. But, life had something else in store for me. So I could not do that and I stopped to even dream that I could do it later in life. The possibility had faded off in the back of my mind.. But now I am considering maybe I can try to study whatever I can right now. I want to learn and educate myself consistently in any course of study.

I want to learn on how to paint.

I want to travel to the places I've never visited before yet my heart longs for them as if they are where I belong.

So.. Here's this one to dreams.


  1. Dream, Shiru :)
    Reach for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars :)

    I believe that it's never too late...

    Let's see you paint the world :)

  2. I believe so too, I need to rearrange my priorities and stop having emotional breakdowns to maintain my focus. :) I miss you and I love u so much!
