Growing up, my dream was to be a lawyer (wow!) But somewhere along the way, I realized that court and cases weren't easy for me. Becoming a lawyer was not exactly a realistic life dream for me. Instead i turned into numbers, and engineering. Something I am good at, though not as good as Einstein and Newton, but I enjoyed to do. So here I am today, sitting here working as Civil Engineer doing Final Account Agreement of several subcontractors for an Airport Project.
So maybe, my destiny is to become an Engineer. Yet, I know that I still have hidden interest with Arts. anything that has something to do with Arts and subjective matters. Something that does not require formula to perform. So I tried to enrich my little knowledge about these things and start to improve my skills. I enrolled in basic Photography when I was in Dubai to gain more knowledge with my SLR, I enrolled in basic Graphics Design Course to elevate my skills in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. And since I love events planning, I took an online course for Wedding Planning. And now, I am an occasional blogger. Not a famous as you, but I love writing, and writing helps me express what I feel, i think and I see. For me, writing is sharing your inner thoughts and transfer them from thoughts to words.
These things might be simple in the eyes of other people. But aside from being a Licensed Engineer, these things made me happier. Things that made me smile and gives more confidence because I know I can handle them.
Technically speaking, dreams are not always about just dreaming. But rather, dreams are something you usually gravitate towards. I may not be the best blogger, events planner, nor best photographer and graphic designer, but at least I figured it out what I am good at - even more so, things that I like doing.
it is okay to dream big - it's human nature. But make sure that you are ready to fight for it, and turn them into reality.
