“Mwanadamu aliye uchi ni kiumbe mnyonge kuliko wanyama wote. Hana ngozi wala manyoya ya kumsitiri na nguvu za mazingira. Hana nguvu za simba wala mbio za swala, hana makucha ya chui, pembe za fahali au mbawa za tai. Licha ya unyonge huu, mwanadamu ni kiumbe pekee mwenye uwezo wa kubadili mazingira yake. Nyenzo pekee inayomwezesha kufanikiwa ni lugha”
Mawazo hayo yaliandikwa na waandishi Heese na Lawton kama utangulizi wao katika jitihada zao za kufafanua dhana ya lugha, nami sina budi kuyaazima kama katika utangulizi wangu katika makala haya. Uzuri wa lugha, umuhimu wake kwa mwanadamu na uwezo wake wa kusetiri utamaduni na kuurithisha toka kizazi kimoja kwenda kingine ni mambo ambayo yamejadiliwa kwa kina na watu mbalimbali na pasi na shaka iwayo yote wengi wetu tunakubali kwa hakika kwamba lugha ni nyenzo muhimu sana kwa mwanadamu. Hivyo sioni kama ni busara sana kuzijadili dhana hizo tena bali nijikite katika kiini hasa cha makala haya.
Lugha yetu ya Kiswahili imepungukiwa na jambo moja, likifanyika hilo itavuka vizingiti vyote vinavyoikingama na kutamalaki katika mawanda mapana kuliko ilivyo hivi sasa. Kabla ya kulitaja jambo hilo niwakumbushe wasomaji kisa kimoja kilichoandikwa katika Biblia. Kwa wasomaji wa Biblia hawatakuwa wamekosa kusoma simulizi moja maarufu lililorekodiwa katika kitabu cha Marko juu ya mtu mmoja tajiri aliyetamani kuurithi uzima wa milele. Katika kisa hicho mtu huyo alimwendea Yesu na kumwuuliza ni jambo gani afanye ili akaurithi uzima wa milele. Yesu, tunaambiwa, alimwangalia mtu huyo na kumtajia amri kumi za Mungu anazo takiwa kutimiza. Yule mtu kwakujiamini akajibu kwamba amri hizo amezitimiza tangu akiwa motto
Yesu, tunaambiwa, alimkazia macho akampenda na kumwambia “Umepungukiwa na neno moja. Enenda ukauze ulivyonavyo vyote, uwape maskini,….kisha njoo unifuate”. Tunaelezwa ya kwamba mtu huyo alikunja uso na kuondoka kwa huzuni kwa sababu alikuwa na mali nyingi. (Marko 10: 17-22)
Tukirudi katika lugha yetu ya Kiswahili, tumeshuhudia mijadala isiyo na ukomo juu ya uwezo wa lugha hii katika utumizi wake hasa uwezo wake katika kutolea elimu kwenye shule za sekondari hadi elimu ya juu. Midahalo mingi imefanyika tangu katika ngazi ya wanafunzi wa sekondari hadi kwa wanazuoni waliobobea. Suala hasa limekuwa ni kama lugha ya Kiswahili inaweza kufundishia masomo hasa ya sayansi na kama inaweza kuhimili kasi ya utandawazi.
Binafsi naungana na wale wote wanaokiona Kiswahili kuwa kinaweza kumudu na kukabiliana na changamoto zote zinazotolewa lakini hili linategemea jambo moja kubwa. Jambo hilo ni nguvu ya uongozi na hasa uongozi wa juu serikalini. Ili kuipa mashiko, hoja hii tujaribu kuidurusu historia ya Kiswahili kwa kuangalia mambo machache.
Kiswahili kilifanywa lugha rasmi ya kutumika mashuleni na katika shughuli za kiserikali na watawala. Kilifadhiliwa na kufanyiwa utafiti, usanifu, na kuundiwa sarufi na watawala. Mbali na wakoloni wa Kijerumani kuanza kukitumia katika shughuli zao rasmi za kiserikali, Waingereza walifanya kazi kubwa zaidi ya kukipa misingi imara. Hoja yangu hapa ni kwamba si umma uliolazimisha Kiswahili kiwe lugha rasmi bali ni utawala. Nguvu kubwa ya kukieneza na kukisambaza Kiswahili ilifanywa na watawala.
Kwa waliopata kusoma vitabu vingi vya Kiswahili vilivyochapishwa baada ya robo ya kwanza ya karne ya ishirini hawatakosa kumkumbuka Hayati Frederick Johnson aliyekuwa katibu mkuu wa kwanza wa Kamati ya Fasihi ya Afrika ya Mashariki (East African Literature Committee). Bwana Johnson aliweza kufasiri katika lugha ya Kiswahili vitabu kama Mashimo ya Mfalme Suleiman, Saafari za Gulliver, Hadithi ya Alain Quitermain, Mazungumzo ya Alfu-lela-u Lela, Kisiwa chenye Hazina na vingine vingi.
Ikumbukwe pia kwamba vitabu vya kufundishia mashuleni kwa wakati huo kama vile Milango ya Historian a vingine vingi vilivyoandikwa na wazawa katika lugha ya Kiswahili vilipewa msukumo na utawala ili Kiswahili kiweze kuwa na mizizi imara. Ijapokuwa watawala hao watakuwa walikieneza Kiswahili kwa maslahi yao ya kiutawala, hili haliondoi ukweli kwamba wao ndio waliokieneza Kiswahili kwa kiasi kikubwa na kukisanifisha katika lahaja maalumu.
Tukijaribu pia kuangalia wakati na baada ya uhuru, juhudi za utawala katika kueneza na kuimarisha Kiswahili ziko dhahiri. Ni nguvu ya utawala iliyopitisha lugha ya Kiswahili iwe rasmi katika Tanganyika huru. Ni nguvu ya utawala ilyopitisha lugha ya Kiswahili itumike kama lugha ya kufundishia masomo karibu yote katika shule za msingi.
Rais wa kwanza wa Tanganyika, Mwalimu Nyerere, mathalani, licha ya kuandika vitabu mbalimbali katika lugha ya Kiswahili, alihimiza pia matumizi ya lugha hii kwa kupitia kauli mbiu mbalimbali. Harakati za Kisomo cha Watu Wazima zaweza kuwa mfano dhahiri katika kuthibitisha hili. Tanzania, nchi maskini na iliyoingia vitani na Uganda mwishoni mwa miaka ya sabini, bado iliweza kufanya vema wakati huo katika kufuta ujinga wa kutokujua kusoma na kuandika.
Haya yaliwezekana si kwa sababu ya fedha au uchumi uliostawi bali ni kwa utashi wa uongozi wa juu uliokuwa madarakani na moyo wa wananchi katika kuitikia wito kwa uongozi wao. Hadithi za Bwana Matata zilipamba moto katika kila kona ya nchi yetu hasa hasa katika mazingira ya vijijini. Kauli mbiu ya Mwalimu Nyere iliyosema “Wakati ni huu!” ikiwahimiza watu wazima kujikomboa kutoka katika makucha ya kutojua kusoma na kuandika. Haya yote yalichangia kwa kiasi kikubwa katika kukua na kuenea kwa Kiswahili.
Walimu waliosaidia harakati hizi wengi wao walikuwa wanajitolea. Madarasa yalikuwa nyumba za mabalozi wa nyumba kumi kumi. Nakumbuka vijana wahitimu wa daras la saba kwa wakati huo waliokusanyika nyumbani kwetu kusaidiana na baadhi ya walimu kufundisha madarasa ya watu wazima waliokuwa wanajifunza kusoma na kuandika Kiswahili kw a bidii.
Naikumbuka misemo kama, “Ndizi huleta pesa pyai” badala ya “Ndizi huleta pesa pia” na msemo “Ndizi ni kyakulya” badala ya “Ndizi ni chakula”. Hiyo ni baadhi ya misemo iliyowasumbua bibiu na babu zetu katika jitihada zao za kujifunza Kiswahili. Nayakumbuka haya yote kadiri ninavyozidi kuitafakari nguvu ya kushawishi na kuvuta umma aliyonayo kiongozi anapoamua kuwaelekeza watu katika jambo fulani.
Faida ya jitihada hizo inaonekana hadi leo. Popote Tanzania waweza kwenda na kuwasiliana na watanzania wenzako katika lugha ya Kiswahili bila ya matatizo yoyote. Iwe katika biashara, kazi au majukumu mengine ya kimaisha. Kwa sasa inashangaza kuona kwamba baada ya zaidi ya robo karne tangu wakati huo, tunadai kwamba lugha ya Kiswahili haiwezi kukabiliana na vikwazo vya utandawazi. Katika zama ambazo tuna idadi kubwa zaidi ya wasomi na taasisi za kutolea elimu kulinganisha na wakati huo.
Ni hapo ninapojenga hoja kwamba uongozi wetu na hasa uongozi wa juu ungetia shime katika kukinadi Kiswahili na hayo yanayoonekana kuwa vikwazo, umma ungefuata nyuma na kukabiliana na changamoto hizo. Tanzania ina wasomi wengi wanaofundisha katika taasisi mbalimbali za nje ya nchi. Tusishangae kuwasikia wasomi hawa wa kitanzania wakifasiri na kufundisha lugha ya Kiswahili katika nchi za Ujerumani, Uingereza, Marekani, Botswana, Afrika ya Kusini na kwingineko nje ya nchi yao wakati hapa nyumbani tukikikebehi Kiswahili hichohicho kwamba hakiwezi kukabiliana na vikwazo vya utandawazi.
Nakumbuka mwezi Machi mwaka 2004, Profesa Hamis akitoa mada katika kwa wanafunzi wa Chuo Kikuu Huria mkoani Kagera, aliwaambia wanafunzi hao kwamba alikuwa katika hatua za mwishomwisho katika kukamilisha kazi ya kuandika kamusi ya Kiswahili-Kiarabu. Kazi ambayo alikuwa amepewa na serikali ya Sudan. Huyu ni msomi mtanzania na anaishi Tanzania. Nchi jirani zinaiona hazina tuliyonayo na kuitumia huku sisi tukilumbana kama Kiswahili kinafaa au hakifai. Sitarajii wanazuoni kama hawa wanashindwa kukisaidia Kiswahili kukabiliana na changamoto zinazokikingama.
Shirika moja la dini la Mashahidi wa Yehova lenye makao yake makuu huko Brooklyn, New York nchini Marekani huandika machapisho yake mengi katika lugha mbalimbali ikiwa ni pamoja na Kiswahili. Mathalani katika magazeti yake yajulikanayo kama Mnara wa Mlinzi na Amkeni, huandika mbali na mambo yanayohusu imani yao, makala mbalimbali za kitiba, kisayansi kijiografia na kijamii kwa kutumia lugha ya Kiswahili kwa umahili mkubwa. Iwapo watu hawa huko Marekani wanaweza kukitumia Kiswahili katika kufafanua mambo yote haya iweje sisi wazawa, wenye lugha, tushindwe?
Tujaribu kukumbuka maeneo machache ambako nguvu kidogo ya viongozi katika kushawishi na kuelekeza imeweza kuleta athari inayoonekana upesi. Mathalani katika uongozi wa awamu ya pili wakati timu ya soka ya taifa ilipokuwa inafanya vibaya katika michezo yake, raisi wa wakati huo aliwahi kutoa kauli kwamba timu hiyo ni sawa na kichwa cha mwendawazimu. Kauli hiyo ilipata nguvu, ikanukuliwa na vyombo vya habari na ilidumu kusemwa na kurejewa na watanzania wengi. Hoja hapa ni kwamba, huo haukuwa msemo mpya katika lugha bali uzito wa kauli hiyo ulitokana na uzito wa mhusika aliyeitoa.
Tukiangalia mwamko uliopo kuelekea timu ya taifa ya soka ya sasa, hakuna shaka kwamba ni pamoja na jitihada binafsi za mheshimiwa rais wan chi. Watanzania wengi wamehamasika, wameweza kununua na kuvaa jezi za timu yao ya taifa, wanaishangilia na kuipenda. Sio siri kwamba hamasa hii kwa kiasi kikubwa ni pamoja na kumwona kiongozi wao wan chi akijumuika nao katika kuiunga mkono timu hiyo. Wabunge wamefuata mkondo huohuo na imeweza hata kuzungumzwa katika mojawapo ya hotuba rasmi za mheshimiwa rais.
Ni kwa mtazamo huo basi nashawishika kuamini kwamba Kiswahili kimetimiza yote, na kimeyatimiza tangu zamani, lakini kimekosa neno moja tu., nalo ni msukumo wa dhati kutoka katika uongozi wa juu wa nchi. Hili likifanyika, mengine yote yatawezekana.
Naomba kutoa hoja.

When I first got involved with Network Marketing, I was so excited that I didn't know what to do. I had signed up the same day that I first heard the plan and was going to be rich! I was ready to run outside and holler my program details to anyone in shouting distance. Instead, I decided to make a plan.
My plan was to place an ad in the newspaper, and wait for the phone to ring. Surely I'd be rich by the end of the week.
It didn't work...zero calls and out $60! I was running out of ideas.
Next, I called my friends and asked them to come over for a meeting to see a new business idea. Well, they came, they liked the presentation and a couple of them wanted to sign up. The next day was spent trying to contact my upline to get answers to questions for my friends. It was a long process but I tried to sound excited just like I had been told.
In the end my friends lost interest and came up with excuses why they couldn't join at this time. They also started to avoid my calls and our relations became strained.
Now I was left with no further ideas and not only was I not rich, I had actually lost a few hundred dollars on advertising, sign up, and products that I didn't want. I didn’t even know if they worked or if they were safe.
Four days into my new venture and I promptly quit.
Network Marketing doesn't work!
So what's the secret?
How do some do great in Network Marketing while others never get out of the starting blocks?
It's not as hard as you may think...but it's not easy either.
Here's the secret formula.
Secret #1. Know your company.
Look around, compare and contrast, don't just sign up with the first company that promises to make you rich.
Do your due diligence...research the company, ask the tough questions, try to prove it will not work.
Get help, ask questions, put the upline to work for you. Are they willing to help you?
Read everything they have, study the compensation plan, the products, the manufacturers, the upline, and the president.
Find out what your upline will do for you? Are there hidden costs? Will you be provided training? A website? Conference calls? Is your upline available for you? Is he/she doing well? Can they answer all of your questions promptly? Do they operate professionally? Do they pressure you? Do you feel important?
Until you know it all and have no more questions, this is the stage you should remain at. Do not sign up for anything until you complete your research.
You must fully research a company before you can truly believe in it.
Secret #2 Believe!
This one is tricky and the real key to success in Network Marketing.
If you don't believe in the company, don't bother...it just won't work.
Do not confuse belief with hope! Don't hope it will work, don't hope the opportunity is real, prove it, believe it.
Believe it by proving it. If you thoroughly know your company (see #1) , did your research and can answer any question asked, then chances are you believe in the company. If you can't answer the tough questions, and didn't research every aspect...then you are simply hoping to get lucky. Looking for the get rich quick scheme will lead you to lose your money and waste your time.
Don't "know it"....believe it!
Everybody knows that mlm can work. They don't all believe that it can and will work for them.
If you truly believe in your company and in the opportunity, then you will not have trouble getting people to a meeting. You will not have trouble answering the tough questions, you will not have trouble contacting people or promoting your opportunity.
Look at all the successful network marketers. Do they take it seriously? Can they answer questions about their company? Do they believe in the opportunity they are promoting? Of course they do.
If you know your opportunity inside and out and truly believe that it is a realistic shot at getting out of the rat race, you will be excited. You will not be bothered by a "no thanks" because you know that you will eventually succeed. Your company and opportunity is solid!
The only path to true belief is through your own research. You can't take somebody else's word for it. You must do the work for yourself.
See for yourself, when you truly believe, you are on your way to becoming a successful network marketer!
Where everybody wins.

To Encourage You To Believe
In The Beauty Of Your Dreams
| Remember Your Dreams|
Looking back, I can still see the face of my closest friend. How happy and excited he was but a little bit hesitant in saying, “Really? You will treat me in the Jollibee?”
I was then in my third year of high school when God showed me His mercy and love in due time, the deepest confusion, inferiorities and hardships of my life.
I'm an ambitious young man and I have a lot of great dreams for my future. But how can they be? They're the same questions that are always lingering in my mind.
I'm a product of a broken home family. Grew up in the street and stayed with different people - even with the cruelest person in this world! It's good that that part is finished; the bitter memory of my childhood!
Now, I'm renting in this lonely old small house a room of my own while working on a construction site. My salary is P120.00 pesos per day and I must pay for house rent, food and my studies.
In this kind of situation I felt as if I was still trapped in misery and strife but living with great hope and determination to reach out, even for a single one of my dreams: to finish my studies as a capital and to have a brighter future because I believe in sayings that go like this, "Do your best and God will do the rest".
One day, one of my closest friends approached me and said, “Friend, are you still working?”
“Yes!” I said, “Why?”
“We have a quiz today. Please attend the class because if you miss it, then you know absolutely what will happen, right? Remember your dreams that you told me?”
These were the warning words of my friend while leaving.
“Thanks so much friend, I will,” I assured back to him.
So I hurried up to finish my work, loading the truck with some cement and gravel. When I was done, I quickly headed toward my lonely home to make some quick preparations of my school things because the class would start at 1:30 p.m. and it was then 12:30 p.m.
“At least I have one hour to prepare myself.” I thought.
While doing so, this close friend of mine knocks on my door and we leave to go to school together.
It was not yet time for the class to start, so we decided to go into the library. While there, my adviser saw and called me!
“Mr. Reconalla, can you come to my office? I have an urgent matter to discuss with you!”
I paused for a while to think and guess what we were going to discuss and oh, what came in my mind just made me feel nervous and a little bit sick!
Why? Because I was thinking that most of the time the adviser talks privately with his/her students when they are delinquent in their academics, behavior or for any kind of poor performances. I felt too weak to think about a positive reason since I hadn’t eaten or rested well before I went to school.
Of course I don't have any choice but to go see her. With heavy feet and heart, I entered my adviser's office and there she was waiting patiently. I could hardly wait to hear what she was going to tell me because before she opened her mouth to start, I can hear the tremendous pounding of my heartbeat. I almost couldn’t hold down the different emotions and feelings I was feeling, anticipating the horrible things she was going to tell me. And at last, she started to talk.
“I understand what you feel right now, my dear!” she said, as she was reading the expression on my face and looking straight into the window of my soul.
“Oh! Thanks!” I said relaxing a little and finding some relief.
“You know, I have a better plan for you! I am aware of the situation you are in, through your friend, and I have been observing you for a long time in your class performance and I salute you!”
“ It's really hard for you to finish your schooling in high school with this kind of situation for there are only a few opportunities here to help you to support your needs to go to college, so I encourage you to take the Philippine Examination Placement Test by next week. I have confidence in you that you can do it!” she said, unaware of my informal education background.
I did not passed through a step-by-step grade level from elementary and some of my cards were just faked by merciful teachers to let me jump to a higher grade. And now, here in my third year of high school, I could hardly believe my teacher wants me to jump again to college and that she has confidence on me!
Confidence- a word that I needed most to hear at that time for inferiorities succumbed me most of my life!
“Just prepare this and that, and so and so... and I will help you to register when you have all the things you need.”
Some other things she was talking about were not clear anymore because of my excitement and happiness that replaced the feelings I felt before I entered her office. I thanked God and my adviser for such a good opportunity for me!
I really thanked God with great relief and with a deep sigh for providing an instrument so that step by step, I could fulfill my dreams.
After our class, I shared the news with my closest friend. He was so very happy and excited for me. I told him that I would treat him in Jollibee if I was able to pass the exam, and I also asked him to pray for me.
“Of course my dear friend!” he assured me and we separated from each other with happiness and excitement in our hearts.
Night came and I was visited with so many various emotions in my heart and thoughts in my mind that I could hardly sleep. What if I failed? What if I did not finish my studies? So many, many ‘what ifs' questions entered my mind again.
“Oh! My life maybe has really no direction and I’ll be worthless after if I fail this good chance for me.”
So I bowed down and prayed hard for wisdom and strength to face another challenge of everyday life that would come, especially the coming test that I was about to take!
After that, I slept peacefully with a lighter load of burden and cares of uncertainties of life!
A few days before the examination, I went to my sister's house to ask for money that I would need. When I arrived, she was so happy that I was able to visit her but when I told her the real reason for the visit, she was a little bit disappointed but granted my request and gave me her last bit of money in her pocket.
She wished me luck and I immediately headed to my adviser's house because she promised that she would go with me to register.
So we went to the registration office and lo and behold! There was only one blank registration form left - as if it was really waiting for me. If we would have been late a little bit or just a second, then it might have been taken by someone else and I would need to wait another year or perhaps some other year to try again.
My kind teacher and I were so very thankful to God for this miracle event.
The examination day came. Nervousness haunted me once again, for I was thinking that maybe I'm the oldest guy taking an exam there and can't imagine being surrounded by young people staring at me to make me feel embarrassed and uncomfortable.
So again, I prayed fervently to God that just do His Will for me and let me overcome the feelings I had.
When I entered and sat in my designated place, I tried to look around to see if I was right in my imagination. But I was surprised. There's a lot, lot older people than myself, more than I was thinking before.
The exams were so hard for me. I couldn't remember anything that I had to study or learn from the classroom. Why? Because many times I arrived late for class, and if I wasn’t late, I was absent. So I had to rely on the Will and Wisdom from above and information I learned from my personal readings of books, books that I had sometimes borrowed from my good friends.
One month had passed; I could hardly wait for the result of my exams. My closest friend and adviser were also waiting with me. During this time, I could hardly sleep because I was always thinking about it, so I decided to go on the office of the examination center and ask for a result.
Surely, I was not disappointed; they gave it to me!
When I got the result, I wanted to shout... shout for joy because I made it! But instead, I looked up to heaven and ascended my thanksgiving prayer!
I went to my adviser and thanked her and she said that I am free now to enroll in college. Oh! What a blessing for me! But of course before my story ends, for sure we have a little celebration in Jollibee with my closest friend.
How happy I was during those times but for sure I was much, much happier when I received my diploma! A Bachelor holder in History and Minor in Political Science and passed the Philippine National Teachers Board Exam; the fulfilled dream of my life!
Now, I am upgrading in Guidance and Counseling and the same time working as a School Guidance Counselor, Part-time College Instructor, and Working Students Supervisor.
To you, my dear readers, always remember that the only person who can stop you from what our Great Creator intends for you to become is you!

Can you imagine anyone being serious about that? Dreaming is a natural part of who we are. We explore our dreams and develop personal dreams. We even like to dream BIG!
Our dreams become part of who we are. We then adopt our dreams into how we see ourselves and want our lives to be. That type of dreaming we often refer to as visualization.
We know we're not going to stop dreaming, but we can change how we visualize. For the most part our dreams and visualizations focus on the end result. We see ourselves in love, married, driving a great car, on vacation, with tons of money, in a great career, famous, etc. Sounds good to me, how about you? Why not dream about all this and more?
Dreaming about the end result is just fantasizing and wishing. Wishing relies on some magical force to make our dreams turn into reality, and we become unhappy as we're not living our dreams.
I have never felt the power of wishes coming true. I have never actual met a Genie or have a taken a ride on a magic carpet. It doesn't mean that dreams can't come true, it just means that there is no magical force waiting to deliver your dreams to you.
So how do you make your dreams come true? That is a question we all often struggle with. Even though we struggle with the answer, the answer is not that obscure. We make our dreams come true with the action we take.
Dreaming about being in shape will not get you in shape. Dreaming about being rich will not get you rich. Dreaming about being famous will not get you famous. Dreaming about the end result will not make it happen.
If you want to get in shape you have to work out. If you want to make money, you have to be in action to earn money. If you want to be famous, you have to put yourself in a position to become famous. If you want the end results, you have to do the actions required to get there.
See the movie of your life in your visions. Imagine going to a movie and arriving at the very end, how interesting would that be? In order to understand why and how it ended you need to see the sequence of events that lead up to the end. In order to make your dreams come true you need to see the sequence of events that you must take to make the end result make sense.
Change the way you dream and visualize yourself into a movie which incorporates the actions you need to take to achieve the end result.
If you dream about being in shape, then change your dream to see yourself working out and eating right day by day. See the beginning of the dream and let the dream build day by day with all the action that gets you to the end dream of you being in shape. If you want riches, then change the dream.
Dream of yourself going to school, developing a career, working hard and taking the steps to arrive at the destination. If you want love, love the process. Love the dating process and the rejections. Love yourself and the journey to find love. Make a movie, a love movie in your head and develop the scenes.
Make all your dreams include the beginning, middle and end. Make movies out of your dreams and see the journey. Then when you are doing the action instead of thinking to yourself, "This is a drag, I don't like working out," or if you are having any negative thoughts about doing the work it takes to create your visions, realize then that every step of the way you are living your dream. You are living your dream because you made the action and journey part of your dream.
You can start living your dreams today by changing the way you dream. Then everyday is a dream and you can be happy doing the action, by living your dreams.
