Chasing YOUR Dreams..

No matter what it is, however big or small, we all have a dream. That dream is made up of lots of different ideals of life, varying from person to person of course.

Even if we don’t have a specific dream, we all have goals we’d like to achieve in our life such as starting a family, buying a house, or earning a certain sum of money.

Chasing that dream can be challenging. I am currently chasing dreams and the road feels SO long, if you know, you know!

I find myself going through a mini rollercoaster, I am sky high and feeling optimistic about the future and then I’ll have a couple of days questioning every single thing that I’m doing and want to be doing. Yet, I always come back to that same dream, in fact over the years, through my various hobbies it’s always been the one thing that’s remained.

The important thing with a goal or dream is to NOT pin it down to one single event or opportunity whether it be an exam or job interview. Put your all in to it, yes, but if you “fail” (I prefer to call it a change of plan!!!), it’s crucial to remember that your goal / dream isn’t instantly over or unachievable. Also known as – your life isn’t over!

One thing I’ve learnt, is that it’s important to change up routines, in order to keep motivated and excited about what’s to come. My hypnotherapist actually suggested this to me and it does make a lot of sense. Staying in a routine for a prolonged time means things get comfortable and then unfortunately it becomes harder to step out of our cosy little comfort nest.

Following a goal or dream can feel so far ahead that you wonder if you’re ever going to reach it and that’s why it’s even more important to change up a routine. Try something new, or go back to an old way that worked for you. You have time.

The truth is this – success holds a different meaning for every single one of us as human beings and that’s okay, it’s entirely normal. What I’ve come to learn is that there is one simple success we can all achieve and that is to make somebody’s day, week or month that little bit brighter by being a little bit kinder.

Kindness will set your soul free and release your potential. Kindness isn’t weakness!!

Chase those dreams and remember that you’re more than capable of getting there.

Ciao for now x
