The reason why I’m telling you this is not to brag or anything, but to inspire you to chase your dreams, travel more, read more, do what you like in essence.
Since I’ve shared so many retrospective stories with you guys, I’ve received so many messages from people congratulating me for my year. That kind of got me thinking and without modesty I can tell you that I am the one that made my year so great. How is that? Super simple. I’ve learned to say yes to challenges and adventure and this has made me extremely happy.
The main reason why I’ve traveled so much was not thinking too much about whether or not we should go somewhere and just go for it. Of course, that our blogging job kind of made it easier, but in the end it was all worth it, both the traveling and the working. We’ve had to work 2 or 3 times harder to make that possible, but hard work that you love in the end is what makes you happier and fulfilled.About chasing your dreams… Find that thing that you truly love and you’re good at and quit your job. I’m not saying that it’s easy, but in the end you’ll have no regrets and I think that is the most important thing in life.
My mom for example enjoys so much her days off and doesn’t want to start working because she doesn’t really like her job and her time home is better, very opposed to what we’re feeling these days of ‘holiday’. And if I tell her that she should quit her job and start a business, for example a flower shop, because she’s obsessed with flowers, she always finds reasons not to do it. ‘It’s too late now’, ‘I’m too old’ or any other excuses she finds in order not to do what she loves and why? What is the purpose of that? Doing something that makes you miserable instead of being happy and chasing your dreams? For me it is 1000 times easier to struggle doing what I love, than doing something that I hate but that has 0 risks.
In conclusion, don’t wait for next year or don’t say ‘now it’s not the right time’, because it will never be. You’re one step away from making your dreams come true and the only thing you have to do is work and just take that first step. The next one will follow and so on until one day you will wake up and looking behind you’ll realize you are living the dream.
