“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
― H. Jackson Brown Jr.
Long have I been wanting to blog about this yet I can’t grasp the words.. I don’t even know how to start.
I have been asked twice by two different people this question: What are your dreams?
It’s not that long though but the same thing, the same situation, I was speechless for quite some time.. I couldn’t find the right answers yet.. or more prolly because it was long been forgotten or long been left behind.
Or could be, because I am afraid to be hurt again, I don’t want to have one anymore.. or simply just because I have been hurt and expected too much and at the moment, I only needed my heart to recuperate and catch up on some rest.
I was in a situation where I “thought” one of my dreams is coming true.. But I was wrong. Or it wasn’t just the time yet.
That moment when you have put everything you have, including your time, your effort and your own soul and self just to make it work but it ends up to nothing..
Looking back when I was in college, I had a friend whom we get to have dreams together, we made an invisible bucket list of dreams that we could both work on when we finish our course.
I still can remember some of it.. or say those ones that I was sure of.. It was wanting to learn how to dive so one day we will both do scuba diving.
To experience wall climbing, and we did, although I didn’t made it to the top as I was enjoying hanging with the harness on. hahaha.
We’d finish college and work abroad or even if we can’t work abroad, we will just spend some time some where overseas and enjoy life at some point.
That we’d remain friends until we get old…
Ah! Those good ol’ days hey?
I never finished college but I have been to one country overseas so I guess there’s still fulfillment..
I haven’t get to learn diving yet but who knows, one day I can do that. 😀
There are heaps of dreams that I have but will keep them to myself.. there’s still that lil spark of hope in some corners of my heart that some time soon, I get to have my dreams come to life.
And there’s this one lil dream I believe will come true, in time.. 🙂
Who knows, right? I may not be where I thought I’d be but for sure this is where God wants me to be.
Grateful that I am still here alive, kicking and breathing and still has the capacity to love and be loved in return. 🙂
