Dreams are what we pursue for a lifetime. My dream is that my parents will never grow old and will always be with me. But I know that’s impossible. No one can be young forever. Everyone will grow old. I accept this cruel reality. So I have decided to spend more time with my family and keep as many beautiful and delightful memories as possible.
Most people can’t believe that I have a second dream – to go to university – because I am academically weak. Once, my teachers asked me to share my secret of how I remain so cheerful and positive and never give up despite all the challenges I face at school. It is because I know my parents appreciate my efforts. They won’t blame me if I get poor results. They just want me to try my best. Their love and support has made me stronger and helped me to step out of my comfort zone.
To reward their love, I will treasure my time, enjoy my life, and try my best at whatever I do. I hope that when they are old, they don’t need to worry about me.
Can you also share your dreams with me?
