1. It’s easy to start as a dreamer when everything’s going well, your life is stable and if you lack nothing. I was like that – a sheltered rich girl. Joseph was like that, as the favorite, the one with the special coat. Audrey Hepburn was like that – the daughter of a baron who was able to study ballet and become proficient at age 15.
2. However, there are oftentimes events that make our dreams seem impossible, unreachable. After they happen, we tend to shrink back and wish we could just survive or get bitter at what happened, at our crashed dreams. This is the time when we forget our dreams. Joseph could have done that when he was sold as a servant to Egypt and was put in prison, then forgotten by the very people he helped. Audrey could have felt the same way when war came and she almost starved to that. Then war ended and she trained as a ballerina. But when she asked her mentor, she was told that she had little chances of becoming a prima ballerina – a dream shattered. I felt that when we became bankrupt with no means to buy educational resources, learn outside or improve oneself. Then, my two-year plan of studying in the US failed and I forgot about my dream. I worked in the call center and just prayed we would survive.
3. Remembering the Dream
Somewhere during the frustration, Joseph remembered his dream and looked at the greatness of God. Audrey did the same. Now, I’ve finally started remembering the dream.
The cupbearer finally remembered and Joseph was called upon by the king. His chance came and the Lord made it happen for him. The war finally ended and Audrey was shattered that she could never become a ballerina, something she has been training for for years. Then, she decided to become an actress where she’ll have a chance. It was just a second choice, but look at what she has achieved. She’s one of the world’s most beloved actresses, one of the most photogenic and truly one of a kind, a fresh face.
My story’s unfinished. I don’t know what will come next. But I’m looking forward to an exciting one.
