Dream Big

"No dreamer is ever too small; no dream is ever too big."

I recently chanced upon this quote and I think it makes a lot of sense. It is not wrong to say that most of us teens or young adults (I am the latter) are still struggling with having a dream and whenever we get bombarded with questions relating to our future, our goals and our dreams, we get nervous racking our brain in search of an answer that we hope would not sound embarrassing.

I believe that deep down in our hearts, most of us have dreams — one that we are too shy to voice out because we are all too afraid to be judged since we think we would not be able to achieve it, or that we have one too many dreams that we can't decide on one.

The effects of our ever-so-judgmental society has caused us all to retreat into our shells — an imaginary one that we have built to fend off the labels that our society has given us. And, that is one reason why we are all so afraid to dream, let alone dreaming BIG.

Well, to those who feel the same, my word of advice would be that this is your life, and you have full control of it. You may not be able to string your thoughts, nor build your dream now, but never be afraid to seek a purpose for your life. Think about things or hobbies that make you happy, and work your way from there. The ultimate goal of realizing your dream is to be happy and have a sense of fulfillment. Keep an open mind and always remember: "Aim for the skies because even if you miss, you will still be among the stars."

Don't be afraid — dream big.
