Here I want to share with you 5 things that I believe will change your life when it comes to pursuing your dreams and living the life you imagine. I almost forgot about my piece called, Dare to dream, and half the stuff I don’t even think I have done, but putting plans and goals in place, (which is what I will flesh out on a bit more later on) is a milestone, and achievement. Gee, I think I say that word ALOT! Whatever it is you have been dreaming, it is time to look at what you can do to start LIVING IT!
And now, as we are about to welcome the new year, suddenly we realize – this is our fresh start, a new chance, a life full of things that have never been. There are new questions to be asked, new challenges to be embraced and new things and people to be loved (or the old ones, cherished even more). With the new year ahead we’re embarking on a journey with so many answers to be discovered and lived in this new transformative year, full of delight and self-discovery. This is the perfect time to dream and plan, as only dreams give birth to change. New year is the time to be brave.
If you’re one of the lucky ones who have finally decided it’s time they introduced a change in their lives with this upcoming year, we’re giving you a few tips to stir you into thinking straight – for yourself:
In my recent post, How to live a successful life, I talked about short term goals, and long term goals. I am a huge goal kind of girl, where I love to write down all my goals for the future, and to have the motivation to succeed in something. I have come up with the idea of writing down a list of my current AND future goals, and dreams of where I want to be NEXT year!!!!
How many “I wishes” do you have? This is my list…
I wish I could read Italian and French.
I wish I could speak like a really classy woman
I wish I could be a MORE proficient writer!
I wish I could sew and design my own brand of clothes.
I wish I could do my own hairstyles
I wish I had a toned lean killer body
I wish I had a clean, massive, expensive wardrobe
Does any of this sound familiar to you? Everybody wants some sort of words of wisdom to keep them going in life. If you can stay inspired and focus on living and achieving your goals, then whatever goals you have, they can become bigger over time, as you set out to persist and achieve more. We all have dreams, and I have been a big dreamer growing up. I have been the “reach for the stars” kind of girl. Dreams and imagination play a big part from a young age. I dreamt for the “Mary Poppins” and “Disney Princess” life when I was little, and it is probably still in me because what you fantasise as a child can still play out as you grow older! But I do have different dreams as an adult. What are your dreams?
