Gloria was an average Colombian female and she worked hard to make ends meet. She’d work two jobs daily so she could keep her young son Manny well fed. After working each day and night, before she could sleep, she’d wish to be a better mother.

She desired to speak better English and be able to give Manny good schooling and a good life. Her strong desire made her work hard. She took time but improved her speech. She worked harder than ever, made time for her son and also changed in the process.

She became a better version of herself and a hero to a son that looked up to her! That’s what being an optate is. It is about having a strong desire or wish. Such people would not stop at the finish line. They’ll have a strong belief and will always keep going.

Sheldon woke up as the alarm tone of a bell just kept on ringing. He just was too tired and didn’t feel positive but still had a smile on his face. He didn’t know why he was smiling.

He woke up and made breakfast without burning the bread or spilling the milk. He ironed his clothes and caught the bus on time. He never got that bus since the past month. Sheldon got to work on time and still was smiling.

Everyone in office was unexpectedly shocked but also happy to see him smile. He worked and chatted with many in office. He just didn’t realize when the clock moved to 6pm.

Sheldon left for home, still smiling and full of energy. He exercised, made dinner and caught up to that book which he always wanted to read. In a while, someone rang the bell outside. The bell rang continuously and it irked Sheldon. That’s when he woke up to the sound of his alarm with bells ringing.

Sheldon never realized how this could be a dream. But then, he smiled …again!

What just happened?

Our dreams sometimes are projections and wishes that we hope to fulfill. What you see in such a kooky dream might be a message, something unexpected or strange.

What could have been?

Maybe, you can think over your dream and decode the message yourself. If it can make you happy, then please work on fulfilling it.

Lily and Marshall have been two extreme opposites all their life. Being in the same friends circle, they would often hang out, play golf and even go for trips together.

While Lily happens to be the quiet and reserved one, Marshall lives in the moment and does things that are sometimes outside his comfort zone. Lily will think twice before taking any step for every situation. Marshall does that too but not always.

Once while the whole troupe went golfing, a rich businessman happened to raise stakes on hole number 9. All he said was any one who can get a hole in one gets 100 $. But if you try and lose, you must pay him 1 $.

This made almost every person playing to try their luck on hole number 9. Everyone in the group knew Lily was a pro and hole number 9 was her favorite. She occasionally got a hole in one. The group insisted she give it a try too. But Lily got hesitant. For her, losing 1 $ made no sense. She declined. Marshall on the other hand gave it a shot. He landed a hole in one and won 100 $.

What just happened?

In life, we always think twice before taking any step. Lily did that too. But when there is a situation which you can handle easily, it’s the right thing to bet on your skills. If you are hesitant, you lose that moment of success.

What could have happened?

Lily knew hole number 9 very well. In 2 or 3 tries, she could have landed a hole in one. But being hesitant on losing 1 $ cost her win! Don’t be hesitant always. Trust in yourself and life will reward you!
