Sometimes I get so inspired that it's a little overwhelming. Ever since starting my blog, my passions and dreams have grown an insane amount. Before this blog, I didn't really have any idea on what I wanted to be or what I wanted to do in life. Now it's a completely different story. I have goals and dreams coming out of my ears. I love it so much, but in some ways it's hard for me to get my head around. How do I physically chase these dreams? It seems so daunting to me right now.
I've always been scared at sharing my goals and dreams, even before I started this blog. I would never openly tell people how much I wanted something - to get into a good sporting team, or to get a specific job - I was scared because I felt that if it didn't happen then I would be so embarrassed about failing. My step for today is to share my dreams (...I'm terrified). I've got so many swimming around in my mind, but I've simplified down to these three;
- Become a freelance photographer
- Write a coffee table book using my photos called The Littlest Things
- Start a successful food and cooking website with my dad
The question I keep asking myself everyday is; what can I do today to help me get to my dream? It's hard, because "dream" is an illusive thing. They constantly change, and are hard to execute to the exact idea you have in your head. However, most of the time, reality turns out even better than a dream (something I need to remember)!! I'm trying to not get caught up in what I think is the "end product" and trying to not think things like; "if only I had this camera, or those clothes, (etc) then I would be able to start making my dreams come true". Because that's not how it works. It's the little decisions and things you do during every-day life that help you get to where you want to be. I need to remember that, but as I said in the beginning of this post, sometimes I just get so inspired that I get overwhelmed and I just want it to all happen right away. It's all about the patience.
This has been a complete ramble, but it's currently where my head is at haha. The above picture is me on pretty much every single day haha.I would love to know; have you ever followed your dream?
P.S I've started another creative outlet. Check out The Littlest Things tumblr here.
