Dream Big

When I was younger, I dreamed of becoming rich when I get older. I wanted to have a stable job, travel the world and become a jet setter. Day dreaming was one of my hobbies in my younger years, lol! Why not? It's free to dream so why not dream big? When I hit 30, I haven't fulfilled my dream yet. I was still single and still not rich. Then I dreamed of finding a rich husband who could help me realize my dreams, take me to a city break trip to places I've never been. I've seen rich people who always travel and what a life they must have. They can travel the world, see exciting and wonderful places on the face of the earth.

A few years later, the Lord gave me my husband from Texas. He is not rich, just have a job, and he is a Christian. He went to the Philippines to marry me and when my visa was processed we both flew to the US. My dream of riding a plane and see the land of the free came true. He took me to different states and I was able to see those places that I just used to see on tv and in the movies. Dreams do come true! Now I'm dreaming to travel to Europe and see Paris, Rome and Madrid to name a few. Who knows, God will grant the desires of my heart in His perfect time. If not, I would still be happy and contented serving my Lord.

It's true. Keeping your eye on the prize--just setting your sights on your goals--will eventually help you strive a path towards your goals. It's hard to describe, but it's the kind of thinking that has been around for ages.

You are right po, dreaming is FREE so why not dream big, I have dreams simple one and most of them come true, as long as you believe and work for it, sooner or later you'll eventually reach that dream.

haha, Lis, I too had the same dreams when I was younger, be rich, thinking it would mean happiness :) now, having seen a lot more of life's reality, i no longer dream to be rich, contentment and peace in the heart brings in more happiness, a very solid one, I guess, it comes with age :) haha!

Dreaming is healthy and just like you I have dreams too when I was young. I dreamed of having a stable job which I achieved before getting married but I am so happy to be staying at home and be a full time wife and Mom to my husband and kids.

God hears our wishes and grants them if we have faith and belief that the wishes will be given. ^_^

We all have dreams. I dreamed before of touching and feeling snow, and now, I dread the days when it's snowing... hehehe... I also dreamed of becoming rich and travel the world, you know see the famous places before I die, but it seems impossible with what I have now, a part time job that does not even allow me to buy a car... hehehe, but I am somehow contented with what I have. I know that the Lord has his own plans, and that I will have to discern... I still dream big...

Yes, they say dreaming big will keep your horizon wide to achieve bigger things in life and not be constricted with limitations.
