Oh, how we are actually get romanticized by the phrase of “dreams”, especially “the dreams come true”. I used to look myself as a little girl who got many dreams and hopes, who sincerely wish that this world is filled with kind people and sustainable ecosystem, who think that there are miracles in this world. Well maybe i am still that little girl. So one day, my mom said to me that she wanna go to Japan and that she want me to join her. I always wanted to go there, since I forget when. Maybe when I watch Sailor Moon, or when I watch my first J Dorama Long Vacation many many many years ago. Yes, going to Japan has been my dream, for all along.
The thing about trip with mum is, uncertainty. Not until the very last few weeks that the trip would still be on, not cancelled (as they used to be). And finally, suddenly I was going to Japan. Wait, it’s not the beauty and majesty of Japan that I wanna tell here. Of course Japan is so magical and I really enjoyed my time there. But the highlight of this event is how do I experience the dream come true. I don’t know how to put this but I think God give me this experience in a way, to heal my broken heart. A broken heart because of forever temporary (I’ve posted a story about this).
I have been planning, I’ve made some calculation actually, I was supposed to go to Japan in the next few year, maybe 2 or 3 years later. But God’s time is so amazing. I could go there this year and I still couldn’t believe it myself that I have actually cross that list. I have fulfilled it. Maybe it was after Japan trip that I started to feel losing the burden on my shoulders. Because after all, really, God has a unique way to teach us the lesson. It was very hard for me to let go some thing, but after I try to, God give me the sweetener. I don’t know if everyone will experience the exact same thing about dreams that do come true. But I came to the conclusion that, some of our dreams will come true in an explainable way after we make sacrifice or let go the things that we’ve been kept for a long time. Maybe God wanted to teach me that we can not get everything we want at the same time, and every thing has its own time limit: so when the limit is fulfilled we have to say good bye.
I also used to think that it’s impossible for me to let thing go especially if I want it forever be with me. But, in this very unique way, I learned that I can handle that, and well.. I am not actually losing this thing because sometimes the thing is just being evolved, transformed into a new “model” and somehow we would feel enough of it.
In conclusion, I want to take this moment for me to also learn that dreams that do come true is very beautiful. However, there’s a price that we have to pay to make it true. If it’s really your dream, and it’s good (not harm for any other creatures), then it will be the fair price. One thing that I know after this, I will still believe, I will still hope, I will still dream, especially for a good cause. Because I know, it will be worth it.
