Strange Turn In Make Dream a Reality


Few months back I had a dream- This wasn’t one which occurred in between sleep but one which I planned while awake. At a time when I wasn’t really feeling like myself, I made a commitment that in 6 months I’ll be up in the air in a hot air balloon in Cappadocia. I wanted to make dream a reality but fate had different plans for me.

Make Dream a Reality

I remember writing about this in my very early days of blogging, you can check that post here. It was the very start of a long journey. I still look forward to it, I still believe I will make it a reality

I was so motivated that I started saving up half of my income thereon. When I had saved enough to make the dream a reality, I couldn’t do it as I had switched jobs and was then on probation. Completing my probation I thought there is nothing that could possibly come in between my dream. But it did, Coronavirus did come and interrupt my plan. This is not the first time that I had to postpone it due to unforeseen circumstances and honestly it is annoying but what can we do? How can I make dream a reality in such a time of uncertainty?

Life does not go as planned, apparently it’s not supposed to. I am left with zero motivation given the current situation. Travel was supposed to be an escape from routine, from monotony, from the everyday hustle bustle of life. On top of that we are all locked down in our homes now. The only thing keeping me sane at this point is time is my routine. You can read all about it here:

It is important to differentiate between controllable and uncontrollable events that take place in life. So whenever something bad happens, ask yourself can I control it? Is the answer is yes then go ahead and make a logical plan on how you intend on working on it. If the answer is no, then there is literally no point in fretting over it.

It has become really hard to get myself up everyday and keep going. Yet I do. And I see it as an accomplishment. I’ve had days in the past when I would just give up and stop doing anything altogether. But the past is in the past now.

I’m no longer that person, I refuse to be that person. Life does not happen to you, it happens for you. You choose how to react and you can take control of the situation, regardless of whatever it is. This time around I have chosen to react logically and rationally. It is difficult to not let your mind take over and go negative but you have to be in control no matter what.

So I’m going to fight.

Fight these feelings

Fight these thoughts

Fight my bad moods

Fight the negativity

Make Dream a Reality

I will keep going and moving on. The only way ahead is the way forward. You have to be so persistent that even life bends down because you refused to. It isn’t easy, trust me it is not. But it is the right thing to and if I was to repeat this behavior over and over again, I would.

This is a tough time for all of us, we are all in this together. Maybe we will walk out of it as a different person. Someone who will put a lot of value on the little little things that did not matter before. This person will smile more, love harder and would not worry too much all the time.

I would love to hear about your Make Dream a Reality situation. What dreams did you have to postpone given the current pandemic? And how are you call coping up with it?

  • “You have to be so persistent that even life bends down because you refused to.” I love that line in your post because that’s how I’ve become, persistent. I’ve had writing goals and luckily, these goals are those I can pursue while at home. However, I used to make unattainable goals and would get so upset when life didn’t go the way I wanted it to. And back then, it seemed like nothing ever went right and I was banging my head against a brick wall, then I’d say, “screw it!” and even say, “life’s a bitch”. Yep. I’d think, “Life, you’re a bitch and I won’t bother trying anymore. What’s the point?”

    So, for a long time, I gave up. I wouldn’t pursue anything because I just knew that something would be waiting to knock me down if I ever dared to try. Then I read “The Secret” and it gave me a whole new perspective on things. I started changing my thought patterns. That’s when my life changed for the better!

    Thank you so much for this post! This really resonated!

    • You’re most welcome! I am glad you were able to relate. I’ll be honest it’s gotten really tough these days with everything that is going around but then again only those of us who persevere are going to make it.

      • You’re absolutely right. And it’s going to take keeping our minds right and doing things to take our minds off the current events. Because the news alone can drive you mad.

        • I was supposed to be in China now, because I study there. I came to Slovenia for two months for vacation and was not able to go back anymore (in February). My plan was to stay for two months and after realizing that it’s going to take more time for me to be able to go back, I started to think in direction: How can I get the most out of this? and the next step was taking action.

          Because as you’ve written: it doesn’t make sense to worry over the events thst cannot be controlled.

          We are all in this together and we all are going to get out of it together… Soon… And let’s make sure we get out of it more mature, with more knowledge and wisdom.

  • And about your goal: the time for it will come and it will be wonderful. I think it was maybe just not the time for it. And the more you wait, the more you’ll appreciate it.
