Dreams


Sometimes when this is the most we have on our minds — dreams are formed. Dreams can be the start to new growth. Boundaries keep us where we are and not where our dreams can take us. Focus on what is beyond the horizon not on the boundaries. Dreams do become reality.

Grow!




 Quotes by Jeff

May 2012





This boy gets up early and sell bread from house to house so he will have allowance for school. Pretty sure the day after he graduates he can afford to start his own bakery business.  



 This boy works in the morning and goes to school at night.  Keep working hard to finish school, someday you will be an engineer or architect !


Training to become a future athlete !

  1. your photos and captions remind me of the boy who tried to peddle a pearl necklace to me at a beach in Batangas. when i responded to him that i did not have money, he said he could exchange the stuff with my sweater. my sweater cost me P2k to buy. the pearl necklace cost P100.

    1. I love to play with dolls and plastic medical equipment - didn't realize that there's more to just playing those things - a dream was forming !

  3. love Jeff's quotes Chay, and on seeing positivity on every situation and every picture.

    when i was younger, i love picking guava fruits (the red variety) from our tree, then, I sell them at school. I loved every opportunity to earn. I wonder why I did not become businesswoman, but then, up to now, I love the opportunity to earn in my free time, blogging is probably the closest I can think of those selling guavas activities in my childhood. when i was in college, i would exchange with my classmates my tutorial service for a free lunch or snacks :) then I am teaching :)

    anyway, really love this post Chay, thanks to Jeff, again reminding us of the hopes we can hold on to in making positive changes to every situation.

    1. I agree, becoming an athlete and popular also comes with the price - a risky profession !

  5. chay and jeff, i love this post, you guys! your awesome collaboration- jeff's wise words and chay's vacation photos - made for one inspiring article about one of my favorite topics - dreams! good job, you two!

    i have always had the utmost respect for hardworking people from all walks of life. i do hope and pray that the people featured in this post may one day achieve their dreams and move on to better paying, more fulfilling careers - not that i look down on ice cream or pandesal vendors, but those of us who grew up in developing countries like the Philippines know that those are very low paying jobs. so i wish them nothing but the best!

    "Focus on what is beyond the horizon not on the boundaries"- such sage advice, jeff. thank you for sharing this.

  6. PS- on a nostalgic note, i miss very much the pandesal and taho vendors who would walk up and down our street in Leveriza, Pasay City, when i stayed in an all-girls boarding house there while working in makati. their lilting voices echoing up and down the block would never fail to bring a smile to my face, specially on lazy summer evenings when my roomies and i would be lounging around in our pajamas in the boarding house terrace. the vendor would holler, "Ta-hoooooo!" and we would holler back, "Ta-hoooooo!" he would hear us and come walking up the narrow street, balancing those taho tin cans on that pole, on his dark, broad shoulders. in minutes, we would be relishing that sweet, silky taho. yummmmmmm! i still can almost taste it. God bless all taho vendors everywhere (pandesal vendors, and young gymnasts, too) :)
