“Live Your Values, Pursue Your Dreams, And Follow Your Passions”. This really implies the true ways we must do to have the best future life we could possibly have. Seeing through around the earth, we will find all kinds of people exist in the world. I think why those people are different from each other might be a difficult task to study—–which factor influences and drives them different. It is lucky that I am the one among them so I know that mine is my dream.
Over my life time I would like to achieve many things but there are three main things I would like to accomplish: to be a triumphant person, help my loving parents and most especially to serve my fellows. I have been exhilarating by my dream, from the day I knew why I came into the world to so far and even in future, which is making me different from others. It is a goal, an aim, a direction for my life. It is not strange from outside, but from inside.

It is to be an engineer. At first, I could hardly decide what I want to be in the future because there are so many choices painted in my mind. But at this time, I am at the crossroads where I have to make decisions, specifically at my choice of course in the college and at the same time, my profession. With all the sacrifices and eschews that my parents are exerting just to send me in school, I don’t have reasons not to give my bests all the time. This is my second dream.
At that time, I have my job and I have something to make them feel so proud of me, I would like to give them the best life. I would like to make them feel comfortable and see sweet smiles in their faces. This is really the one I like to achieve in my life, mountains of words can’t explain how much I love and appreciate them. With all of my knowledge and values learned, I would like to share these to my fellows especially to those youths, in the future, by serving them with unconditional, whole-hearted and without any ambiguity or doubts.
This really shows our compassion and charitable heart for others. Simple dreams of mine for others but worth living reasons for me. I, together with my parents, have a simple means of living; but because of firm determination, strong faith in GOD, good values and virtues I assure that we will have the bests of life in the future not because of the luxuries but the richness of love, compassion for people and passion for God. These are my dreams, my inspiration which I have to work on for the future.

A Letter to My Future SelfBy Alicia Gonzales - Sep 02 2016
Dear Future Me,
It’s been four years now, and you’re officially a college graduate. I hope you have enjoyed these few years you’ve had here because they went by quick (or so I’ve heard). As a freshman who is just experiencing my first days of class I can already tell I’m in for a wild ride. I'm going to experience a lot of things, from school to parties to even relationships, but I'm ready to take it on. Right now I'm not sure what my future looks like, but that's okay. I have time to figure myself out, figure out my goals, my dreams and my aspirations.
You, however, are a wise, experienced and knowledgeable graduate. I hope you have done all the things I wish I do. I hope that you have stayed true to yourself, maintained your beliefs and stood your ground. You've met a lot of people along the way, but you are who you are and you should never change for anyone. I know that you’ve seen some good days and you’ve seen some ugly days, but here you are stronger than ever. You’ve overcome these obstacles and faced some of the biggest challenges you’ll have to face. So congrats! You can now look at the real world with the confidence it takes to make something of yourself. So go ahead and put yourself out there, reach your ambitions, do whatever it takes to succeed. But along the way make sure you’re still happy and filled with love. Take time for others, but also yourself.
Hopefully you’re not that different than me now, but hopefully you have grown into something I can be proud of. I hope you are still kind, brave and even more. College is such an important part of life, and I hope it has bettered you in more ways than one.
And it may seem rough right now: scary and uncertain, but just know that younger you will always be rooting for you from a distance. I’m hoping that we not only make a mark on the world, but a mark on the people that we meet in our life. Because if there's one thing I know, it's that I want to be an influence - I want you to be an influence. I want to inspire people that I meet to be a good person. I want to inspire people to follow their dreams and to never give up on what they want. So if you've done that, I thank you and look forward to the people I meet along the way.
Also, just a reminder that nothing is more important than your happiness, if it’s not making you happy it’s not worth it. I may not know where you’ll be in the future, but just take a deep breath and know that everything will be alright. I promise.
