Say you’ll remember me standing in a nice dress,
Staring at the sunset, babe
Red lips and rosy cheeks
Say you’ll see me again
Even if it’s just in your wildest dreams, ah-ha, wildest dreams, ah-ha.
Does the lyrics sound familiar? Yeah! It’s Taylor Swift’s song titled “Wildest Dream”. Perhaps, you don’t know that I am also her fan 🙂 I happen to hear this song a couple of times since yesterday. When I got in the office today, someone in the waiting area was singing the said song. Few minutes later, I found myself listening to it on my computer. Hahaha! (In fact, I am still listening to it until this moment of writing this post.) I couldn’t even remember how many times I have clicked the replay button. Ahh…this LSS, too. 😀
While I was enjoying the music..this question came. And it made me thought about it. What is it, anyway?
What is my wildest dream?
When I was younger, I wanted to fly, to go to the moon, to walk on Saturn’s ring, catch the stars and put it on a jar. I wished I could stop the rain by just dancing the “sun-dance”. 😀 My young and innocent mind was indeed innocent. When I went to elementary, my dreams became realistic. I wanted to become a police woman, a doctor, a pilot, a lawyer, a scientist…those were just some, actually. Some of my classmates said, I was too ambitious, some said those dreams are impossible. And even though, I wasn’t sure that I would be able to reach them, but it didn’t stop me from dreaming.
I am now a teacher, and I never dreamed of becoming one when I was younger. But I love what I am now. I didn’t have any regrets of becoming an educator. I am happy to be where I am. Someone asked me, what about my dreams when I was younger? Well, there are things that are not meant for us. Perhaps, I am really not destined to become any of those. HE knows best, and everything has its purpose.
I remember someone told me this a long time ago. “We can dream, wish and pray for anything. But in the end, the ONE above will decide what would be best for us. HE has three answers to every dream, wish and prayer. First, ‘OKAY’, because you deserve it and it’s best for you. Second, ‘NO’, because you don’t deserve it or it’s not good for you and I have better plans. Lastly, ‘WAIT’, you’ll have it on the right time.”
Did I stop dreaming and wishing then? Nope! My dreams are my inspiration that is why I keep going. This time, my dreams may not be as wild as yours or vice versa, but let us keep dreaming still, no matter how impossible it may be. Just like what Brian Williams said, “A person starts dying when they stop dreaming”. Dream on!
P.S Oh! My wildest dream? This time, I want to become the next President of the Philippine Republic. 😀 hahahah!
