“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost, that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” 

“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.” 

To live or to dream. You can't be choosing one because what is a life without dreams, and you can't dream if you are not alive. Sometimes life and dream are two different things that usually do not come together. We often live our life but struggle and fight for our dreams. True? Life without dreams doesn't require much effort and hard work but life that comes with dreams does. Agree? The easiest way to make everyone understands about this is - Life without a dream is meaningless. 

I guess you guys can sense that my words are getting serious and tense. Hahaha. Well, actually I am. I am really serious about my dreams. At times, I get so envious of my friends who had succeeded in pursuing their dreams. Saying that may not mean I am thankless. I am so thankful for what I have now, and I truly aware that all of His blessings always be with me. Alhamdulillah. Pursuing dreams is another set of task in life that I really have to do. And it ain't easy. To make the first kick start may require a lot of motivation and courageous. As for myself, I feel a bit upset since I've been holding it for too long and still didn't get a chance to move on. Time is the main constraint that I've got to deal with and it never been enough of time till I decide 'Yes, just do it!'

To me, dream means nothing if you can't share them with your loved ones. Why do you need to share? Well of course to gain their support, trust and assurance. By having their support and trust, we would definitely gain so much confidence and courageous to take our first step on the righteous journey to pursue our dreams. Right? But sometimes people around you, even people who deeply care for you, will give you some awful advise, the type of advise that you wouldn't expect them to say and it somehow breaks your heart. It breaks your whole heart till you reach the level of feeling there is no point of pursuing the dreams. Have you ever felt that? Yeah, well maybe they are not being evil by disapproving your dreams, maybe they do not see the big picture of it - what's your dream, your passion and what's life goals means to you. They are just being them who do not clear about you pursuing the dreams and about the reward is worth the risk.  Yeah well, maybe....

On another random thought, it is sad when you finally realised that all this while you've been living in someone's dreams or maybe been helping people in achieving their dreams. When will you live in your own dreams? Will these people help you in achieving your dreams? Or shall you be a dream catcher or forever a dreamer?
