Unlike some others, I can say that I’m more of a realist than a dreamer. I don’t indulge myself in daydreaming and thinking about going to places I know I’ll never go or getting married to someone I know I never will. I have my share of dreams and aspirations but most are meticulously thought about. Not those spur of a moment kind. Yes, that’s me.
But I know I have this one dream since I was young. Remember when autograph books were still the in-thing and everyone wants to write in everyone else’s books and there always this part called ‘ambitions’? Yeah, I would always fill up that part with this:
"To be a successful woman with all my loved ones around me."
Not exactly in those words. I don’t think my English was that good when I was in primary four but that was the gist of it. I dream of being at being successful in whatever I do by the time I reach, say… 40? And it will definitely be something that I am passionate about. Probably design, advertising or even teaching (haha I’m serious). I picture myself having fairly high position in the place I’m working at, all serious about work and having an office of my own or something. It’s a bit far fetched but that’s why it’s called a dream right?
And I think that no dream is achievable without the love and support from family and friends. I’ve reached this point in my life with the help of my loved ones and I don’t think I’ll be where I am right now without them.
Simply put, I guess when I’m at that point in life where I can feel ultimate peace and satisfaction and say, “I’m finally here”, then that’s when my dreams have already come true.
Oh yeah, did I mention that I wanna be married and have kids too? Hahaha what’s new?
I’ll work hard and do whatever it takes to be where I want to be.
“I wanna marry you because you’re the first person I wanna look at when I wake up in the morning and the only one I want to kiss goodnight. Because the first time that I saw those hands, I couldn’t imagine not being able to hold them.”—Definitely, Maybe. (via raindropsonredroses)
“All at once, you look across a crowded room for no one in particular, just looking. Suddenly, you see him, but, oh, how many times you’ve seen him before. So why did your heart just skip a beat? Your eyes meet by mere coincidence, or is it? At that moment you both instantly know that the relationship between the two of you, will never be the same again.”—My Best Friend’s Wedding (via poeticheartache)
