I wake up at twilight
It’s gonna be alright
We don’t even have to try
It’s always a good time
It’s always a good time
We don’t even have to try, it’s always a good time.
I woke up very early this morning at the same time realizing that I sang this collaboration song in my dream! It was also the first time I had a musical dream and I recall becoming aware that I sang minor wrong lyrics which I just laughed off with a friend who is also in my dream. Still I proceeded singing this tune with gusto as if I’m part of a music video.
I find this song fitting and in good timing to serve as my current song in mind since I planned to go out and join a concert tonight but end up staying at home because of unavoidable personal circumstances and from which I immediately accepted. I was also supposed to go to a reunion yesterday and since I was feeling a lot sleepy I opt not to go instead. I just told myself that there are some events in life which are not meant to happen right now.
From my two successive cancelled trips, it turned out that I have more productive things to accomplish which I just chose to treasure. Realizing that there might be more important matters which needed my focused attention this time and in the near future I know I’ll also get to enjoy all the fruits of patient waiting.

I heard a similar quote before and it is only now that I am beginning to understand its meaning. Maybe because I have ignored the things I thought were just okay for me but it turned out that I was also hurt in the process. There were times that I would immediately shrug them off thinking I can manage them in just a snap of my finger. But lo and behold, I found myself in crying state because it was only then that I realized I was not successful with my pursuit.
The denial feeling may have temporarily appeased the broken heartedness but that did not totally solve the problem. I realized to myself that it is alright for me to let myself feel dramatic at times and just for a moment feel the pain. And that I also got to embrace my own flaws because it is through them that I am learning to love myself more.
My journey towards fulfilling a personal dream has been a learning experience for me as I get to discover my potentials and other things I am eager to pursue, that is to be helpful in the best way I can especially to the people I care for. I believe those hurtful events of my life just happened so I can learn to let go of the unnecessary things and relearn to make wiser priorities.
I never thought the rejections I had even allowed me to reassess the things I wanted to achieve and to discover what I truly want which I have been asking myself a lot lately. This could also be the reason why I encountered a couple of failures, before realizing that it meant I am being redirected to a different and much better path to tread on. I am overwhelmingly grateful for those experiences because they encouraged me to become bolder and braver in fulfilling my personal goals. And because of that, I look forward for better opportunities to improve in every aspect of my life – emotionally, physically, financially, and spiritually.
Looking back at all of my past disappointments and frustrations, I am glad that I am becoming more appreciative of the simpler things I used to neglect my attention to and at the same time, aiming higher far reaching what I am destined to be.
Waking up this morning, I wondered why I dreamt about a heart shaped pink balloon which grew bigger every time it is touched by a hand. It came to my mind what could be the meaning behind such a weird dream. Instances like this would immediately move me to browse through Google and search for answers. Most of the time, I would feel elated upon learning that a particular dream symbol suggests a very positive message to me. On the other hand when I found the meaning not favorable to me, I would immediately brush them off my mind.
And now it is already afternoon here in the Philippines and I suddenly thought of my dream earlier this morning because of the latest topic. Since I mentioned about searching via Google, I found this particular meaning very interesting from dreammoods.com:
“To dream that you or someone is blowing up a balloon represents your aspirations, goals and ambitions. You are experiencing renewed hope.”
This is the closest meaning which is connected with my dream but I am still in wonder state why it is a pink colored balloon. Knowing color pink is a happy color as I see it. I searched again and here’s what I found from the same above mentioned site:
“Pink represents love, joy, sweetness, happiness, affection and kindness. Being in love or healing through love is also implied with this color. Alternatively, the color implies immaturity or weakness, especially when it comes to love.”
Based on the results I got, they are definitely a mix of positives and negatives. So far this particular dream has been my most memorable dream. It’s not all the time that I can easily remember a dream and because of this I got curious it might have a significant meaning in my life. Reading dream interpretations like this seems a pleasure to me. Still it’s good to know something which may also help me understand and learn more about myself.
