“Too much television watching got me chasing dreams.” If a sentence could describe a person, this would be the perfect one for me. In fact, it is the perfect one for me!
Seeing all the beautiful places around the world on TV made me realize that I did not belong where I was born. I was sure that my life was meant to be lived in another place. Deep in my heart, I felt like there was so much to explore in God’s world, and I imagined it accordingly.
Time went by. I graduated from college and I started working at a job doing something that I did not like, just because I could not afford to pay for my pilot education. That was the thing that I wanted to do the most, to become an airline pilot.
But I never stopped dreaming or imagining. I never stopped praying. Somehow I knew that something would happen and I would move to another country.
One sunny day I was feeling so good and I was truly happy. Nothing special had happened, I just woke up like that, and I wanted to do something different. So I took my friend and we went to a restaurant in front of the beach. We talked about how much we wanted our dreams to come true. I talked about how happy I would be if only I could move and also get the education I needed to become a pilot.
Well, that following week, to my surprise and out of the blue, I received a message from my brother. He said that he got a discount for me to attend a Master’s degree program at a university in Lisbon. I could not believe what just happened, my emotions went all over the place!
I have now a Master’s degree in Aeronautical Management! I currently live in Lisbon, and I intend to go further in my life. You can rest assured that next time, I will write to you with a different miracle to tell.
The Secret, the law of attraction, and God were there when this all happened. Don’t stop believing, and keep the faith.
