Dreams and Aspirations

Have you ever felt like something was holding you back from what you really wanted to be?
Or maybe you’ve just always wanted to do something or experience something, but there’s just something that’s holding you back? It could be something like your friend’s expectations of you, or even maybe your own insecurities.

If you have never felt like this, then I am insanely jealous of your ability to do things as you wish!

However, for the majority of us, I’m sure there’s at least that one thing that we want to do but can’t.
Maybe it’s something big like travel the world, but can’t due to lack of funds. Or maybe it’s something small like wear those amazing heels out, but can’t due to your fear of falling. But whatever it is, you can’t seem to do it (for now)

They’re your goals, your aspirations, and most importantly, your dreams.

What do you want? What is holding you back?

Something little that I want to do at the moment? I really want to redecorate my room ♥
And the thought of the upcoming exams ..is momentarily holding me back. That, and I need moar moneh!

  • A super high atar score.. what’s holding me back.. lack of motivation ):

  • B

    I think the fear or the unknown that is holding us back tests our determination and integrity. How much we really want something and how much we’ll let these factors postpone what our life can hold. And sometimes, it’s not either of those factors but certainly cirumstances that interrupt these instances. What’s holding me back? I guess the fear of failure. Failure should be a motivator, I believe, but for the first split second, it hits us that ‘hey, you didn’t make it’, then the willpower kicks in. I do hope you decorate your room! It’ll be a fun experience, granted, tiring. And I hope you do well on your exams, you go rip through ’em!

    • melludee

      Oh I think I understand how you feel :(
      Once you’ve been kicked down a few times, I find it pretty hard to fight the will power to attempt to do it again? I guess it’s really something we have to overcome on our own ..eep. And thank you! I do hope I get a chance to do that as well haha :D

  • For me, it’s probably the fact that I want to have a travel/fashion blog. The only thing that’s holding me back is the fact that I don’t have much money to travel, let alone buy the clothes that I like (to put on my blog). This explains why my blog is a personal blog, and not a travel/fashion blog.

  • Mine is definitely to the extremes haha. I went from following a path of becoming a doctor for the sake of my parents when deep inside I wanted to be a fashion journalist. I absolutely wanted to write for a magazine so the closest thing to it was fashion design. Weird, right?

    • melludee

      Eeee, this hits home for me too …
      Although, I’m still kind of stuck in the ‘what do I do?!’ stages eeep. I do hope you get what you want in the end!

  • You look great! :D

    For me, it’s my own mind and some other things. My mind in things as when I am having my motorcycle lessons to push the bike away from me but it feels unnatural and a fear of falling, but it is really possible to do it without falling. I think everyone or at least a lot of people have something similar to that.

    P.s. The GFC bar below is still not function and I cannot login.

  • I want to graduate uni/college successfully and be able to pursue the job I want and just be happy in the end. I always feel like college/uni is going to be a big problem because of the money issue. I also have the fear of falling back in my studies and/or lazying around during college. I want to become a neurosurgeon, but I’m also afraid of failing someone and maybe just failing the medical exams and having to go to school all over again.

    The future’s so scary! There’s always that “what if” that holds us back and prevents us from going further because of the fear of failing. But I guess if we never try, it’s the same as failing? So might as well just try and risk the chance of failing instead of just not trying.

    I wish you luck on your exams! You should be like, “if you pass your exams, then you get to decorate your room and buy ___! SO PASS THOSE EXAMS, MELODY!” haha :D ♥

    • oh and happy moon festival! :D

    • melludee

      Eeee. Don’t be afraid!!!!
      I know it’s pretty easy to say and hard to do, but I guess you never know until you give it a shot, right :( ? But ahh! I used to want to be a neurosurgeon ..not too sure anymore though. I do wish you the best of luck in that career path though! Give it your best shot! (Also, come to Australiaaaa! Our uni is free ..until we start a job ..and then we’re in debt lol ;;)

      AND THANK YOU <333 !!
      Happpyyy Moon Festival to you too! (eat all the nommy moon cakes !)

  • Haha I randomly found your blog and when I read this post I had a déjà vu! Yesterday I talked about this with my family :D Nothing really is holding me back with my one dream and goal, maybe time… Because I want to do experience and know about so many things and wanting to do them all at once! :P I concered so many things and know it is finally time to just do what and when I want to do those things :D

    • melludee

      Oh! How coincidental hehe :D
      Mmm! It’s good that there’s nothing really holding you back at the moment! It’s a good feeling to have <3 (And yay thank you for commenting/reading btw!)

  • I want to decorate my room as well! But also need to study for exams. D; Also a lack of funds and motivation. xD
