When Dreams Fail

All of us have our dreams, whether we achieved it or not life has to go on. It never matter how many times we fail, what matters most is the number of times we stand up and tried to reach our goals.

I have been a dreamer ever since I was a child. Fortunately all of my aspirations life when I was a child I had achieved. But life is not that easy, as I grow up I was able to understand that life is full of complexities. I also learned that not all dreams and aspirations can be achieved easily. I have learned this lesson when I was in high school; I dreamed to be the valedictorian in our class only to be disappointed in the end.

Because I could not accept my defeat, I made my father’s folly as my reason why I didn’t become the valedictorian. For that I didn’t feel so frustrated considering that I have reasons why I failed. When I was already in college I don’t have any reasons at all why I could not get a scholarship for that I tried my best to be one of the dean’s list. With hard work, dedication and diligence I was able to get an academic scholarship. I was expecting to graduate as Com Laude but I was wrong. I didn’t get the required grade to be a Com Laude; I was really disappointed.

As a result I was having depression. My expectations are too high that when I failed I got really disappointed and frustrated. With the help of my loving mother I was able to get over my depression. I did not take the licensure exam right away because I still don’t have the guts to take it. I was still scared to fail.

Years passed, my parents are urging me to take the licensure exam for me to have a license and practice my profession. I refused to take the exam because I am not yet ready for the big blow in case I could not pass. Because of this my parents brought me to a psychiatrist for therapy to get rid of my fears and build my self confidence again.
Finally after a year I took the licensure exam. With my mother’s encouragement and support I was able to pass the exam, in fact I didn’t only get a passing score, I even topped the exam. My mother was so happy to know the result and so am I. After my oath taking, my mother told me to have a thanksgiving party to celebrate my success as well as to thank God for the blessings He had given me.

LESSON: When you fail, it does not mean you have no more chance to move on and reach your goal. All you have to do is to get up and try again, no matter how many times you fall. Above all have faith in God and his divine providence and he will shower you with endless blessings.
