Shooting Stars or Aviatophobia?

Turns out I’m not the only one having plane crash dreams. Hundreds of others (according to Google) have dreamt of it too. Even a close friend of mine says she’s had the same dream when she was my age, and we both arrived to the same conclusion that it only means; I have a goal I’ve been wanting to reach but I can’t or maybe afraid I might not be able to reach.

Guilty.

I don’t know if I can say I still lack confidence in this day and age. But apparently, my dreams are telling me otherwise. Having to set goals as high as the skies but afraid of even taking the first step toward reaching them, the same as like having “aviatophobia” the fear of flying. But I don’t want to admit that. I don’t want to be scared of soaring high…

And now that I am wide awake, I’m willing to take the risk and make this dream go away, with the help of my family and friends who believe in me. The crashing plane I see is nothing but a shooting star, and my wish will soon be granted; in God’s grace and time.

A damsel in perfect solace

As a child, I’ve always been fascinated with fairy tales, princesses from rags to riches, and knights in shining armor. I believed in the concept of love and finding your soul-mate. I dreamed of having to find my own prince someday and was looking forward to the journey I’ve had to face finding him. But those were fiction. And finding love, as what these tales instill in us, is never easy after all.

Most people say you’ll know when you’ve find the right one for you. But I have no idea how would they know, how would I know? And if so, divorce shouldn’t exist right?

So, how will you know?

You won’t. You will never really know it unless you tried. And that’s what usually happens to everyone. They met through a common friend. Fall in love. And all of a sudden, they knew. Got married, have kids. Then, reality sinks in. They were not meant to be together. They’re better off as friends or (much worse) strangers. So what happened to the fairy tales we once dreamed of? It was not really a happy ending after all.

Pardon my cynical views here. But there still is (thank GOD) hope. We could still dream and walk the path that leads to happy endings.

You ask how? I’ll show you how:

Get to know yourself first. Know what you want and do not want. Know your boundaries and limitations. You’ll never be totally happy with anyone else unless you’re happy with yourself. It always has to start from you.

Be each other’s best friend.  A relationship doesn’t always revolve around romance, love and sex. You have to be friends and accept each other for what you truly are.

Always work things out. Couples who have made their relationship or marriage successful always find a way to make things work. Do not give up. Learn to compromise.

Make GOD the center of your lives. His powerful force and love shall save you. Always seek his guidance and be grateful for everything he does. And he will lead you to the right path.

I’d like to think I’ve already found the right one for me. But what I’m sure of is I’m in bliss right now, in perfect solace. ♥
