Do You Believe That Dreams Can Come True?

Hey, aren’t you tired of reading bad-and-sad things-and-thoughts all over people’s blogs? Now check this one out! I’m trying to write something optimistic here!

“Breakaway”
by: Kelly Clarkson

Grew up in a small town
And when the rain would fall down
I’d just stare out my window
Dreaming of what could be
And if I’d end up happy
I would pray (I would pray)

Trying hard to reach out
But when I tried to speak out
Felt like no one could hear me
Wanted to belong here
But something felt so wrong here
So I prayed I could break away

[Chorus:]
I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes til’ I touch the sky
And I’ll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget all the ones that I love
I’ll take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway

Wanna feel the warm breeze
Sleep under a palm tree
Feel the rush of the ocean
Get onboard a fast train
Travel on a jet plane, far away (I will)
And breakaway

[Chorus]

Buildings with a hundred floors
Swinging around revolving doors
Maybe I don’t know where they’ll take me but
Gotta keep moving on, moving on
Fly away, breakaway

I’ll spread my wings
And I’ll learn how to fly
Though it’s not easy to tell you goodbye
I gotta take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget the place I come from
I gotta take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway, breakaway, breakaway


Note:

This beautiful and inspiring song is actually written by no one else but Avril Lavigne!
Setiap kali ndengerin lagu ini, gwe seperti selalu diingetin kembali bahwa DREAMS CAN COME TRUE IF YOU HAVE FAITH IN THEM!
Kebiasaan gwe adalah menulis hal-hal yang gwe pengenin di jurnal gwe, dan biasanya, sedikit demi sedikit, impian-impian itu bakal jadi kenyataan! Cause you know what? Segala sesuatu di pikiran kita yang divisualisasikan (dalam hal ini, ditulis di atas selembar kertas) itu punya energi yang lebih besar lho daripada cuma disimpen di dalem kepala… dan energi itu akan dipakai oleh alam untuk kemudian merealisasikan keinginan-keinginan kita itu! Hmm, terkesan sok tau? Bodo! Emang gitu kok. At least, for me!

Gwe udah mengalami cukup banyak hal dalam hidup gwe yang bikin gwe merasa down, putus asa, bahkan ampe pengen ngilang aja dari bumi!
Putus cinta? Sudah pasti pernah, hahaha! Dari mulai cinta bertepuk sebelah tangan, cinta terlarang, dijadiin selingkuhan, dibohongin, dimanfaatin, ditusuk dari belakang, ditinggal pergi… aih aih… itu sih biasa, jack! Namanya juga masih muda! Hehe…

But what makes my life different from the others is the fact that I have experienced some experiences yang nggak semua orang di dunia ini bisa ikut ngerasain. Hmm… nggak perlu diceritain secara detail lah ya masalahnya kayak apa, yang pasti sih masalah-masalah keluarga… yang oh-sungguh-pelik-dan-memalukan-sekali, dan sukses membuat seorang Misha Johanna merasa terhantam dan terbanting ke bumi (lah, emang selama ini di mana? :p) dan sempet berpikir bahwa life was not worth the living anymore… hmm…
Gwe yang dulunya (mungkin) seorang sanguinis-koleris, bisa berubah jadi sanguinis-melankolis gara-gara berbagai masalah itu. Hoho, hebat banget kan? Ternyata ada juga orang-orang yang menghancurkan hati gwe sekaligus mengubah kepribadian gwe!!! Wkwkwkwk…

Gwe dulu adalah tipe remaja yang bold and loud, and I would never ever let anyone bring me down because I had too much pride and too high confidence in me. So, I never thought that there would be somebody who can break me and tear me apart. Tapi… ternyata gwe nggak sekuat yang gwe kira, cuy! Ternyata, gwe juga bisa ‘patah’, huhuhu… And the ones who hurt me badly were they who I never EVER thought would and could hurt me! Freaky, isn’t it? Haha…

Asli, gwe bener-bener nggak nyangka when that “shit” happened to me! Honestly, after that, I lost many dreams I used to have when I was younger… But then, I realized that God actually had a better, a VERY MUCH better, plan for me… for my life…
I was sent to a small town (hmm, mulai dikait-kaitin sama lirik lagu di atas neh!) to find some new people… and luckily, I got myself some true friends that I’m still keeping until now!
Somewhere along the way, I also met some more people who, in the end, hurt me and left me too. But I swear, they were nothing compared to the loved ones that I have right now! They were just lessons that I’ve learned, while for me, my loved ones are like precious diamonds I would want to keep until the end of time!!! They taught me how to slowly make peace with my past and keep moving forward to be the better ‘me’…

Gwe ngerasa kayak perjalanan hidup gwe ini begitu indahnya terjalin, di mana dari satu orang, gwe akan ketemu orang lain, dan setelah itu ketemu orang lain lagi… yang mana semuanya meninggalkan jejak tersendiri di hati gwe. It’s like, I wouldn’t be here with the people I love now if I never met the people in my past! So it makes me believe that everything must have happened for a reason (or two, or more :p). And the most amazing thing is that, one by one, I found people who could get me up from my pain and sorrow, make me believe that I mean a lot to them, and even remind me about my dreams and convince me to go and get them all!!! They’re there to help me find my way…

So, thank You, God, for sending me such wonderful people in my life… With them (yes, WITH THEM), I would love to strive for my future so we would all have better life TOGETHER! Dan seperti lirik lagu di atas, “I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly, I’ll do what it takes til’ I touch the sky… and I’ll make a wish, take a chance, make a change, and breakaway… Out of the darkness and into the sun, but I won’t forget all the ones that I love… I’ll take a risk, take a chance, make a change, and breakaway…!”
