When I was a little girl there were 2 options for my future: either become a flamenco dancer or being the world champion in ice dancing. I did not aim low and I certainly didn't doubt for a second I could achieve these goals. In fact, after my first ice skating lessons, I practically begged my mum to ask the teacher to place me in the advanced class. I thought I was already there..
Perhaps it's a good thing I lost some of that misplaced overconfidence as I got older, but for me this resulted in dreaming just as big as a grown up, but never really pushing to get there, being afraid I might fail.
Perhaps I am being too hard on myself. There are many many things I did go for and achieve and perhaps I was not ready to really chase that dream at the time, or maybe I didn't want it enough? I don't know, but I always kept having the feeling that there must be something else out there for me and it took me a while to realize that a career at a big company didn't really suit me so well...
So thats it, my blog! Starting it seemed like a big Dream, but really Doing it... That's scary! What if it fails?
Only 2,5 months ago my blog went online and in this short period I've already learned a lot and many people gave me such great advise (keep doing that guys, I really appreciate it! Including the spelling errors in my English hihi). Having moved to Stockholm gives me so much new inspiration for my blog, which is great! Nevertheless, without my family and closest friends around, it's sometimes hard to keep telling myself: I'm on the right track. But then again: when I receive a reaction from someone having made one of my easy recipes or having done an exercise, it absolutely makes my day! Which makes me realize:
This dream I'm chasing is the right one!
A new year makes for a great moment to reflect and set goals for the year to come. I'm looking forward to chase my dream even more:
Making it easy for women allover the world to feel good about themselves
Some of my goals for this year:
So, lots of dream chasing to be done for 2016. I'd better get to work :)
