Daydream

There are days when I just want to lie in my bed and dream. I dream of going to Tokyo and seeing the cherry blossoms in full bloom. I dream of diving in Rainbow Reef and see the marine biodiversity it has to offer. I dream of walking down the aisle wearing a Monique Lhuillier or Vera Wang wedding dress. I dream of attending Paris, Italy and New York fashion weeks. If only my dreams can come true when I open my eyes…

Sometimes, it is nice to relax for a while and let your dreams take over your mind and soul. Smell the fragrant cherry blossoms that blends with the spring breeze, interacting with various marine animals I have never seen before, feel the exquisite textiles used by Vera Wang and Monique Lhuillier for their creations, see the magnificent collections of designers I look up to in Fashion week – all these feelings I don’t experience in real life. It is only in daydreaming that I get to experience all sorts of feelings and emotions. It is only in daydreaming that I get to escape the hustle and bustle that is my life and enjoy something different – even for a fleeting moment.

Daydreaming is meant to inspire and motivate you to do better and work harder so you can one day achieve them. A few minutes a day will help recharge and motivate you in work or in school. However, daydreaming should never be used as an excuse to run away from life. It is never meant to take over reality. Life will always chase you and you can never run away from it. Face it with full strength and valor so you can eschew the challenges and continue down the path to reach your dreams.

I have so many dreams and aspirations in life and those I mentioned above are only the tip of the icing. I still have so much more that I want to experience – be it small things like having an afternoon tea buffet in Manila Peninsula to as grand as becoming a billionaire – I still dream of so many things. Guess this is why they say humans are insatiable. Though I can say I am happy with how my life is right now, of course, there are still so much more I want out of life. I may be happy but I can’t say I’m contented. I always seek for something more and I always want to experience something different. My dreams may be too much to ask right now but I know that if I work hard, I will someday get there; I will someday make my dreams a reality.


On other news, Born Pretty Store sent me this awesome women’s watch! Isn’t it one of the cutest wrist watches you’ve seen? I’ve been wearing this watch for a few days now and I did receive compliments. The thing that really caught my attention is the bicycle design of the face. It makes me dream of warm summer days relaxing in a park, learning how to ride a bike (because I can’t!). Just seeing the cute face of this braceletwatch gives me something to dream about when I need something to help me de-stress at work. Plus the really cute baby blue color, who will not love this watch?

Born Pretty Store is also kind enough to give my readers/followers 10% discount coupon code.



Happy Sunday! J

    1. I agree! Life would be boring without dreams. We just have to keep on believing and one day it will slowly come to life. Thank you, Lilli.

  6. The watch is, indeed, pretty!

    I daydream a lot too. I also daydream of wearing that Vera Wang dress while I'm walking down the aisle with the man I love - or rather I'd love. LOL I can say I'm happy with my life as well, and yes, there are tons of things I wish I can do too; but it's just a few days ago that I have finally realized one of my purposes in life and that just made everything better than before. I used to daydream about things only for my own gratification; but right now, my dreams are for the developmental work I do and that is my real calling :)

    1. I think realizing your purpose in life is very important if you want your dreams to come to life. It is with realizing your purpose that you start weeding out the unnecessary and start pursuing what is necessary. I envy you that you realized this as young as you are. Many people are yet to find this out including me.

  7. Your message really resonated with me. I'm a big dreamer and sometimes I linger in dreams way too long. You are so right. Thank you! The watch is gorgeous. I love the bicycle design and color.

    1. I know. Sometimes we just want to stay dreaming and escape reality. But doing that will only prevent you from reaching your dreams, right? Yes, the watch is really adorable!
