Dream VS Reality

I am new to blogging and I don't have any readers yet. So, the first few posts is gonna be about myself. Because it is really important for my readers to know me. What story I am going to write and who I am as a person - only my close friends knows about me not my future readers and followers. I am not sure yet what is my blog is going to be about but most probably about myself, my writings, fashion, things I wan to do and how I do it. About my past, I will do flash backs and if it is related to what I am going through or what i do reminds me of it, so slowly you will know what I have been through for the past 20 years. I guess I will start with my dream... The reason for this blog is for my dream. It never had cross my mind before that I wanted to be a writer - if you had asked me 5 years ago, i would have just laughed it off... But now writing is going to be part of my life (hopefully) or it had already been a part of my life - its just that I didn't notice it or it was a small part and it decided to grow bigger with time??? Now lets go back to my dream. If you had asked me what I wan to become or what is my ambition, I would probably give you like ten occupation or like jobs that make a lot of money. But right now, I feel lucky to even have a dream that I could try and hopefully accomplish. Because as much as you hear success stories that a particular person achieve their dream and living it every single day, you will also see people who doesn't believe in dreams - they are living the norm, trapped in the vicious cycle of life, where you are supposed to be born, go to school, go to college, graduate, marry your first or your high school sweetheart, have children and then die. Period.
But me, I have always had a wild side and a mind set that something amazing should happen everyday because there is a quote which goes like this 'Live like a thousand years in a day but not a thousand years in a day' which made me realize that you can live until you are 70 or 80 years old but in reality you have only lived a few days in your life because most of it was repetition... I don't want that to happen to me, even if it happens I will try to minimize it. But in reality its not, its difficult to do so... For the past 20 years for me, it was like repetition... I can remember it clearly because that is not much to remember anyway - its just like you live one day and photocopied it to 300 days maybe and the other 65 days were special occasions or holidays. That is why, when I hit the number 20, I am going to live everyday differently... 
How??? By doing little things like kindness - letting an old grandmother have your seat in a bus (nowadays with the world moving so fast, people are loosing common courtesy and compassion) or having a warm conversation with an old grandpa by the park bench or taking a walk in the evening or having a picnic on a sunny day or play in the rain... There is always something different you can do everyday...
