What is dream?

For me, dream has two meanings: a series of scenes that I “experience” when I sleep and things that I want to experience or achieve in a real life.

This time I will only discuss the latter definition of dream.

Some people live in their dreams for too long and don’t realize that they’ve gone too far. It’s like living in their own world. They become unrealistic and “unreachable”.

On the contrary, there are people who afraid to have dreams. I talked to several people who don’t know what they want in life nor what they want to achieve. They simply live their life day by day without knowing where it leads them. Well, it’s true that most of the time we don’t know what will happen to us, but for me, having an objective is important as it avoids me from feeling completely lost. At least I know where I’m heading to… and for sure there will be unexpected things coming along the way– favorable and unfavorable ones – but that will be another task to take care of.

I realize that I have many dreams. There are just so many of them. And sometimes it makes me feel as if I’m living in two worlds at the same time. How can I manage my life to make those dreams come true? I realize that life is short. Thus, I really have to manage my life and time smartly.

Some of my dreams have come true (thanked God!). That’s where I allow the two worlds to draw near. Actually, there is a bridge that links what I do with what I would love to do. And then, slowly, my dreams take over my everyday life and I realize that I’m ready for the things I always wanted.

To make my dreams come true, I notice that all I needed is a little daring and faith. And the two worlds can become one. (sometimes I still need to remind myself about this, especially whenever I feel down)

So, let’s not be afraid of having dreams. Dreams motivate us to grow. But, always try not to dream too much without doing anything real. Let’s try to build the bridge that links the two worlds together. Pieces by pieces, step by step… as this bridge will eventually brings us to our dream world, in real.

And I still need that bridge to take me to the dreams that haven’t come true… yet.

I’m working on it.


  • Ayo kita wujudkan mimpi kita bersama hihihihihihihihi one day we’ll look back to these times and thanked God for we have gone through these mess, survive, and soar!!!! ^.^

  • I think the only way to make our dream comes true is to simply live it. Live the dream. Be the dream. It is the only way to make life worth living – and having one hell of a good time while we are at it.

  • Hanny, hihihi.. mari mariiii kita wujudkan bersama! Mimpi yang mana nihhh? Ada banyaak yaaa mimpi2x kita yang lucu2x ituuuuwwhh! hihihihi… *tertawa ala coonteel*

    Eva: Can’t agree more, Va. Having one hell of a good time while we are at it is something that we all should do always! 😉 Surely sometimes we don’t appreciate what we already have… but again, it takes time to realize that we’ve been loaded with blessings from God, thus it’s time to rejoice for all the good things that have happened to us and celebrate the more precious things to come .. 🙂

    Erwinh: hmm… I’m sure if you look deep into your heart and find a li’l time to contemplate, you’ll find those dreams… perhaps they’re just burried too deep, therefore, it’s time to dig them and drag them back!! Don’t loose ’em coz dreams are one of the things that make us alive and survive…
