TAKE YOUR CHANCES

Now, we all have dreams don't we? Perhaps they might not be as big as Winston Churchill's of creating peace within the European nations back during the World War, but we do dream of being that 'special someone' right? The other night, I was reading through the Bible and I came to this phrase in Luke 14:18 (KJV). It said : 
"And they all with one consent began to make excuse..."

Before you start thinking that this is post is some-sort of bible-related-christians-only-thing, it's NOT. In fact, I think anyone including atheists could apply this to their lives.

To me, a dream is what motivates a person to do better. They probably change from time to time especially when you're under 20 like me but still, they are a changing agent. Dreams are important. It is what drives humans to change into their ideal figures. However, I must admit that there were those times when I feel like my dreams are too high to be reached. Once, I felt that my environment wasn't supportive and eventually I felt i was incapable. Every time a problem rose, I created excuses and avoided them instead of resolving. At a point, i decided to stop hoping and that was the moment that monotonity came into my life.

After some time, it came to me that.. The moment you stop dreaming is the moment you loose hope and the moment that you loose everything. 

Rebuilding my dreams wasn't easy, but I made it through. I dream big and I plan strategically. And the rest? Well that is in the hands of my Lord (or fate as some would say). When issues arise, I take them as challenge for me to improve not as a downgrading agent. Positivity kept me going.. and I hope that it will keep every one of you reading this moving forward too :)

No more excuses. Go ahead. Take action. Live your dreams.
Because nothing is impossible when you believe you can.

Number one: Gorgeous dress and pics!
Number two: there's no dream that is too 'muluk2'. If not, bukan impian namanya, heheh...
Last: the thing about dream, once you reached it, you get this question : "Ok, what's next?"
And sometimes, looking for another, bigger dream, ain't that easy...
