An inspired post to write based on my sister's blog HERE. It was almost everything I wanted to say recently.
The phrase was based on the movie La La Land and honestly, it was hurting me much while watching this entire movie.
Nope. It wasn't just about the love story that was in this movie that made me felt so, but it was how relatable this movie was to me, for us, the fools who dream.
Chasing after a dream that might not come true, putting every single effort on it hurts even more when you get disappointed all over again and again.
I used to, and even now, often, trapped in reality and often, trapped in our own dreams.
How foolish I would often think of myself chasing after a dream that has always been turn down because of the reality in this society.
"But here, here’s to us fools who dream; because no matter how crazy they seem, they are your dreams. You shouldn’t be embarrassed, you shouldn’t be discouraged. In fact, you should be afraid. -Alex- "
You should be afraid of what you will be or might be facing.
You should be afraid of how you are going to fall down for the very first time, how hard will you actually fall.
You should be afraid of the amount of clueless times you will get lost into.
You should be afraid of how too-good-to-be-true promises would break.
You should be afraid of nothing's ever permanent.
I took a step out, out from the comfort zone. I chased my dreams, I achieved my first step and, what's next?
Again, it drowned me into reality and it was like a cycle all over again,
Today, I took a step out from my comfort zone, again.
"And now, What's next?" I asked myself.
No matter how risky, no matter how big the consequences might be, I'd still insist.
Because I strongly believe, Dreams do really come true.
You might be wondering now, was it really worth it, chasing after your crazy little dream?
Please allow me to tell you, YES. No matter how crazy it sounded like, no matter how old you are right now, dreams, never die.
Because I know, in 20 years later, you'll look back and tell yourself "I wished I'd did that". And that would be too late to realize.
The regrets would be too big to carry if only you had asked yourself now“What if?”
What if I had been braver?
What if I had fought for my dreams?
What if I had fought for my love?
What if I had fought for my life?
Instead, why not tell yourself to chase them now, have no regrets later?
Dreams do come true. And I'm one of the biggest fool.
