According to Mr Google, dream is known as a series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person’s mind during sleep. Talking about dream, I remembered something back then during high school when I use to be night owl who stayed up very late every night studying and going back to sleep hoping I don’t dream that night (it is not that I am worried about scary dream or something, somebody told me that if I dream during sleep that means the learning process is not taking place, so I wanted to make sure that even my sleep should be beneficial to me during those years, yes how calculative I was). And I also solved an Additional Mathematics question in my dream (yes, people you read it right) and I didn’t know how to do it at all, after that I am became an expert in that chapter of the subject. So many great people were able to solve so many problems and found solutions during their sleep like Dmitri Mendeleev, Niels Bohr and many other great people and I LEARNED FUNCTIONS CHAPTER IN MY SLEEP (I don’t know why but I feel funny). Does it mean that our dreams can only be achieved in sleep? Well, actually the tendency for it to be in your sleep is high because if something has been on your mind lately too much, there is higher chances of it to appear in your dream.
In another definition of Mr Google, dreams or goals are also known a cherished aspiration or ambition (yes, this is the dream I am going to talk about…..). Even though, both of the definitions are covering totally two different aspect of life: reality and virtual (sleep). There must be a reason why both the definitions is connected to this one word called “dream”(any idea people, I am still giving this a thought).
Dream can become true too and that too in reality or real life. Dream is every insan’s (human’s) rights. There is no limit for it, you can dream about anything in the world. Like Oprah Winfrey said, “the biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.” Trust me, absolute guts is needed to dream. Talking from my own experience, I have dreams that seems impossible and I am worried as well scared thinking about it everyday. I am nowhere close to it and something that I want so badly. Those dreams are also the drivers of my life and it is pushing me to the places I thought I will never reach. Those dreams are the ones paving way to my future. There were days I thought of dropping my impossible dreams but I realize that those were the days I walked the earth without a purpose and plan. I felt so lost in the sea of people, places and things. Everyone of us are born with a purpose in life, not only us even the plants and animals. Read a verse from the al-Quran which motivated me again to continue pursuing my dreams “Did you then think that We created you in vain, and that you would not be returned to us?” Holding on your dreams and working on it every day and every moment is the best feeling ever.
I really hope that achieving dreams are as easy as how movies show us. Just one song interval is sufficient for the success. Everything needs time people, no one is expert at the first go. Every expert was once a beginner and now it is the beginner’s turn to decide what he/she wants in life. The strength of the person is defined by their dreams. The stronger you are, the bigger your dream would be.
To summarize it, only the brave dreams for a better future. Not to scare you but the more beautiful the dream is, it is more difficult to achieve them. Dreams are made in heaven and reaching the heaven is never easy. It doesn’t matter whether you achieve it or not but what actually matters is the dua (prayers), your patience and hard work trying to achieve it. The journey to your dreams are always beautiful one, don’t forget to have fun and cherish every moment. Fight for what you want in life. Allah always knows what is best for you and he will guide you to something even better than that. Believe in Allah. Don’t worry and work for your dream. People, everything we have today was not creating in one trial, everything you see in front of you went through a series of failures but the creator never gave up that is the reason why we have it today.
Believe in yourself (even when others don’t believe in you, the amazing creator we have today, once upon time they were known as mentally ill person, wasting time and many things that we would disagree today). Be the creator of the future and benefit the mankind. Sometimes we are just one step away, therefore please don’t give up and pursue your dreams . Harriet Tubman once said “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world”. Dream and stay inspired for the future.
What are your dreams? Would you trade your dreams for anything in this world?
