Don't stop believing that a good thing could happen in your life...
Since the day i found that particular letter,i have returned to my determined self. Of course my brother and father,who had just got out of the hospital at that time were surprised at the sudden development,but they were relieved. As for me,I was absolutely happy that i dont have to throw away my dream. They could tell me that they're fantasies,but i dont care about their opinions anymore,because this is special to me,and my mother made me realize how so. Also,i have also come to realize that this is not only for me,but also for the many other who were too afraid to follow their own ambitions because of the doubt of other people. So for the last few weeks,i have devoted myself once again to perfect the blueprints of my newest invention. I researched,experimented and tested models just for the sake of this,and finally,i have done i and i call it: The Hot Air Balloon
So on this particular sunny day i stood before the enormous contraption,where the residents of Ponyville have gathered round to witness,including my father and sibling who were in front. With this,i took a deep breath,examining my invention for one last time,then i closed my eyes,cutting off my surroundings as thoughts lingered in my mind: Will I fail like that
time or will I succeed like I have always day dreamed about? While i was in the depth of my mind thinking those,i did not notice that my body started to tremble for a bit,but just as i was going to drown in worst case scenarios,i felt a hoof touch my shoulder and i opened my eyes instantly to see that it was my brother,and he both him and father were smiling reassuringly at me. I could have sworn i saw a light smiling figure of mother next to father but it was only for an instant,even so,my courage welled up once again,and I finally stepped inside the basket carrier of my invention.
Then with a proud smile,i cut of the ropes that bound my contraption to the ground and turned to the gas burner at the top center of the balloon,i gulped as I put my hoof on the handle of the burner...It was now or never. I did it,i turned on the thing that will start the invention,but a bit of worry was still left,so I closed my eyes for a brief moment and took a deep breath,but in the process i heard that i chatter of ponies suddenly turned into silence. So with confusion,I opened my eyes to see hay roofs and some clouds in the background,i gasped at the sight.
I didt it...I've really done it...
But that thought suddenly turned from happiness into a bit of dread,those were almost the same things i have thought of on the day my brother helped me with that other invention. Some ponies would say that i was being uptight,but anything could happen you know? and so i steered my contraption out of the maze of houses so as to not crash into them,then as i floated up,i saw the grand view of the town of which i grew up with. It was almost as beautiful as the first time i was up high,with the mountains and tiny looking plants down below,making it look like a painting made by a great artist and amidst the view,i suddenly heard voices. The audience below were cheering loud,the neighbors who we have known for a long time,the remaining of my family who were cheering the loudest and even those who chuckled at my ambition before.
I was absolutely shocked by this,i almost thought this was all in my head,one of those day dreams i have,but this was real...this was no doubt,the real world. Finally gathering all my thoughts,i grinned big,then i yelled from the top of my lungs-
"Father! Brother! and Mother! I have done it!!"
-and i could clearly see their smiles,and then looked once again at the view before me,i have created i new goal: I will travel all around the world,through the sky realm using this and there i would encourage ponies young and old to follow their dreams,im sure my family would be proud of that decision.
Because dreams are not only for me but for Everypony.
