The Case of the Repeating Numbers (I've Seen the Future)

11:11. 1:11. 2:22. 3:33. Every time I saw repeating numbers, on the clock, smart phone, or even the computer, I opened ajar the door of my heart to sadness. The sometimes-starless sky reminded of my foolishness and cowardice. To the-one-that-got-away out there drinking cola and vodka, I sent a wish of happiness and prosperity, things better said face to face while sharing a bottle of spirit.

#ThinkAboutIt - Do You Celebrate Your Small Victories?

I can’t recall all my personal victories I let pass without my acknowledging of them. 

I didn’t keep track. I didn’t even count. 

I never did. 

For most of my life, I thought the only thing worth celebrating was the attainment of the ultimate goal. All the preluding notes toward the grand orchestral finish didn’t warrant any mention, recognition, or merit. As long as the big prize is still yet to be coveted, there’s no reason to celebrate

Why You Should Be and Should Not Be a Dreamer

Reading the history of Walt Disney, co-founder of The Walt Disney Company, would put you more in awe of the background of the film company. From being told he wasn't creative enough when he was a cartoonist to leaving a great legacy after his death, Walt is one of the most recognisable and inspirational people in history. When you watch a Disney film, you're not just watching a film. You're watching a manifestation. You're watching a dream that came true. It may be hard for you to look at the films as dreams but the fact is that they are indeed dreams. Dreams can come to life, you know.

In fact everywhere you go something's there to remind you that dreams are real. Your house, your car, the company you work for, the city you live in, the recreational parks in the city, the roads - all of these are dreams come true to life. If you look beyond the physical things, you'll find further more evidence of dreams that came true to life - freedom of speech, independence, the right to choose a religion. Dreams are everywhere. You just need to open your eyes to see them. But the most important dream is the dream that lies inside you, the one that's aching to be brought to life like those smartphones, roads, and independence we mentioned.

Like you, I am a dreamer too. I dreamed long enough to learn an important thing about being a dreamer - we should be and should not be a dreamer.
