Someone said…that “I dream too much”.

Truthfully speaking, I’m having mixed feelings right now. But in between being sad, surprised, disheartened and slightly angry, I am more perplexed. I was questioned, whether I ever touch the ground and realize that reality has never been that beautiful.

But why?

This is reality. My days where I wake up, take a shower, dress up, greet my parents and leave the house for work is reality. And the times where I get to blog and be recognized for it, meet new people, be inspired to achieve higher, is also reality. And the moments where I have disagreements with my parents, fight with my loved one, feel left out and fail so many times is nothing but reality. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. And when the owner says it’s pretty, it just is.

I dream big, and I work hard to achieve it. I believe that life is too short for us to have too many doubts and worries, and life feels very much worthy when we have something we want to achieve at the end of the day. Why settle for what we already have? I think it’s perfectly normal to keep challenging ourselves and redefine the meaning of success everytime we feel we’ve own it by setting another new goal. Life is short, but if you come to think of it, we actually have 365 days in a year. Being 25, I’ve spent about 9,131 days already and that’s a lot. If we look at our lives from this perspective, we are actually given so many days to build new dreams, make them real and move forward. So yes, I dream much, and I am comfortable with it because it makes me feel happy, motivated and complete.

At the very same time, I am fully aware of all the risks and consequences, minor and major. Dreaming requires us to be strong, to be able to tell ourselves to get up and try again if we fail. And most of all, it requires faith.

When people tell you, “you are incapable”, tell them “I’ll give it a try”. And when they say, “go ahead and make a fool out of yourself”, let them know “it’s worth it”.

All things considered, I think it's important to be honest, wise & reasonable. Some dreams might end unachievable. But at least we've tried, and that's all that matters.

setuju, "kita harus jujur and apa adanya", sebagai pemimpi (juga) adalah salah satu motivasi untuk mewujudkan si mimpi kedalam dunia nyata and need hard work to get it! hufffft...... maju terus miss! :)

I couldn't agree more.. working is reality, so does blogging :)
what's wrong with dreaming too much, who doesn't want to live in their own dream?

This is the kind of perspective that we all girls (well, basically all people) have to refer to.

"Some dreams might end unachievable. But at least we've tried, and that's all that matters."

I agreed with this, totally!!

My dad had told me once, God judge a person for his efforts, not of what he achieved. The things that we achieved is a bonus from God. Efforts and hard work is all that matters.

Have a happy weekend! :)

malam Die.. agree with you that life is too short to waste time.. (my fav quote, red).. pacar gw punya sikap yang sama kaya lu Die.. dia bilang mimpi atau sesuatu yang gk pernah habis dia rasakan itulah yang membuat dia terus hidup untuk berjuang, hidup semakin menarik saat dia punya sesuatu yang dicapai.. Masalah cukup atau tidaknya, itu pastinya berbeda2 tiap orangnya.. Mungkin mereka hanya khawatir or apalah.. Well, gw sih percaya kalo kita punya niat baik, terlebih untuk orang lain (apapun resikonya) pasti hasilnya akan baik.. hehe.. nelson mandela aja dipenajara 25 tahun.. loh? kok nyambung ke sana yah... hehe... your choice then.. ^^

p.s : Die confirm FB akyu domz,. hehe.. ^^v

jacobian said...

well it's a nice motivational words though.but to succeed in life is that you must know how to adapt to people around you.just always remember of "the survival of the fittest" theory first created by Darwin.and you will understand how to live life by using that commonsense.

i love this post so much. i was kinda worried to dream before, but after reading it, i was like "woah!" thankyou, diana. youre so inspiring.

die die,baru terpikir bahwa mungkin orang yang bilang ke elo hanya mengungkapkan pikirannya, dimana "rasa takut" untuk mengejar mimpi dan mencoba hal baru adalah reaksi yang sangat wajar untuk muncul pertama kali.. Setelah melewati "rasa takut", akan ada excitement selanjutnya adalah action, dan disinilah lo sekarang. Artinya,you're one step ahead than they are...

waktu lo bilang mau menjalani mimpi lo, gw gak pernah ragu bahwa elo akan berhasil, pada akhirnya.

Diana Rikasari said...

Jacobian: i agree...:)

DAP: is this...dafina? thank you yaa for your perspective...i really appreciate it..."rasa takut" itu emang susah banget di overcome, tapi once bisa, rasanya lepas aja gitu heheh...hidup balada kue!
