Chasing My Dreams

I don't chase after butterflies and bugs. I chase after my dreams.

To me, life is filled with dreams. And I am to turn my dreams into realities. I don't believe only in dreaming; to me, dreams are realities in making.

I am determined to put my heart into my dreams, plan them out properly and carefully, carry them out diligently and monitoring them all the time. It sounds simple but I know much time and effort is needed in realizing my dreams.

I was born into a family of a vegetable seller. My daily routine was to make sure that my potential clients loved me and wanted to buy vegetables from my stall. I had to put on a cheerful face with sweet smiles all the time. And I had to provide helpful advices and services to my clients in order to coerce them to buy more from my stall.

I had little time to study my book and to do my exercises. But nothing was to stop me from achieving my dream to further my study in higher institution. I was not outstanding in my study, but I was determined to work hard. I did not have the luxury of a cozy home, or a tuition center, or the quiet and conducive study place. But I have a full heart to turn all my free times into study opportunities.

I loved to walk in the rain, soaking my body all over. I dared the rainstorm and the thunderstorm with determination. Sometimes I did cry in silence, pitying myself for my misfortune. But nothing could bog me down. God knew I was ready to face challenges to fulfill my dreams.

Yeah, a good academic qualification will make me the right start; it will give me good standing in the society. A good education can also help to broaden my horizon to see life in a wider, deeper, and fuller perspective.

From then on, I was determined to chasing after my dreams.

Now, as I look back, I am pleased with all my dreams in reality. But I am not going to stop here...

More is to come, and I am set to realize them all...
