It’s not the alarm clock to wake me up every morning, but the dream! Thinking of the dream, these words appear in my mind: family, friends and future. These three “F s are the motivations that help me to achieve my dream, to live the way that I want to live. Everyone has their own family, and everyone needs family. Parents give us all their love and they are reliable. I believe there is not any kind of love that could compare to parents’ love. Every time when I don’t feel good, they always tell me “The wind will stop, and so will the rain. Stay happy.
You can get through anything. Because of that, I feel confident of myself in everything. If I run out of motivation, the only thing I would think about are my parents, who give me everything I have right now. When I was born, I was naked, underweight, short height, untalkable and unwalkable, all I could do was crying to express what I was thinking. At the time, my parents helped me with everything. They gave me all their love; they never complained to me or blame on me about my naivete; they are like a candle, burning themselves for me. Their love motivates me.
As an international student who is study in a foreign country, I always feel homesick and want to go home as soon as possible, but I can’t. Thinking about parents who are waiting for me to come back home with success, I could not come back yet, I need to study hard and to be successful. Therefore, one day, when I come back home, my parents will be proud of me, and they will know all the money and time they spent on me was worth it. In order to go back home as soon as possible, I realize I need to study hard and get many credits every semester.
They give me all their love, I can’t let them down. Friends are the priceless treasure I have got besides family. Friends are the impetus when I get into trouble. Sometimes I feel study is so boring when I am alone, however, if there is a friend study with, I feel more interested, because we could talk sometime. In some cases, they are the impetus that makes me feel that I would like to go to school, because we can hang out with each other at school everyday.
In another case, some of my friends are really good at studying, because of that, I think I should study harder to make progress as well. And also if I have personal issues, they always stand by and they will tell me, “It’s okay. You will be fine. Learning something from this time and improve yourself for next time. After that I developed a positive attitude and learned to get over it. If I am a boat, friends are like the sail, without the sail I can’t sail to the sea, I will capsize in the surfy sea. To achieve my dream, the last “F would be future.
Future plays a big role in my life, so it motivates me a lot as well. Actually, future takes a part in my dream. “Whenever you want to give up, just think about your bright future , that is what I would tell myself when I have a tough time. I always look forward to my future: my parents will be healthy, they won’t need to worry about money, because I will take care of that; I will have a husband who loves me and cherishes me; and I will have a cool son and a cute daughter, I will teach them how to take care of themselves just like the way my parents taught me.
In order to have a bright future, I need to make some adjustments from now on, I am going to look after myself: I have to eat properly, keep out junk foods; I need to get used to drinking warm water which enhance digestion; I have to learn to take medicine whenever I am sick; because I need to be healthy myself so that I could take care of my parents in the future. Also, I will try to be friendly to everyone; I want to be a considerate person; I will care more about my friends who are around me; and I want to be a calm person and smile more than before.
I’m fighting for my future, because I want to be good enough to deserve the love of people who I love. These three “F s as if magnificent sunrise in my life, I live with them, I fight for them to build the road of my life. There might be hardness, difficulty and the time I want to give up. Even though I know life is tough, I will not be upset, because I have my parents’ love, friends standing by and a bright future waiting for me; their supports motivate me all the time.
