If this is a dream, then wake me up!

" If this is a dream, then don't wake me up! " Like every other teen, this was how I had fixed my mindset. After all, that is how all students are universally known to be. 

I landed in China, I still held on to this dream world where things would happen only based on what I would say. In that world, there was only good, flowers everywhere, in simple terms, it was a fairy tale. I was leaving a totally different from my dream world and strangely I could not realize it. In my dream, I was a Hero, I had the power to change the world but in life, however, I was not even able to voice out my opinion, let alone make a decision. To the world, I was almost a doctor but deep inside I was still a little kid who would just complain if something would happen.

I was now living in country which had witnessed Confucius Teachings, a country that is a rising super power, I had already embraced some of its cultures; saying Nihao to people, its culinary habits; I could handle the kuaizi( chopsticks )quite decently but still I had failed to master 
the most ancient Chinese ideal, to be a warrior. 

A warrior is not just a person with a weapon or a sword, a warrior is a fighter, who fights for what he believes is right, a warrior is a fighter who fights to fulfill his dreams, a warrior is a fighter who fights to unite the divided, fights to feed the famished, fights to cure the sick... Most importantly, a warrior is a peaceful soul.

I was born to be a warrior of love. I was born to rise as I fell and I now had to wake up to go and fulfill my dream. Change does not come easily, every change witnessed a battle and every battle has led to a change. My first quest, was to stop retreating back to my fairy tale world, instead I started to work to create the fairy tale around me. My second quest was to stand up for what I believed is right. The list of my quests is long and I still am striving to fulfill them. All of this is my dream, so Wake me up!!! I need to transform my dream into reality...

Yeah, in reality, we all need to be a fighter, a warrior. Just as the song STRONGER says, What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stand a little taller,...

    Wind and Window and Winter;
    Sun and warm and Summer!

    (Cold wind through the Window in Winter;
    The Sun is warm in Summer!)

    Is there logical relationship among those words?
