‘The future depends on what you do today’. These wise words come from Mahatma Gandhi and they are so very true. As dreaming about the future is easy, chasing your dreams requires work. Did you dream of something, but never accomplished it? We certainly did. The good news is: we’re not that old yet and inspired by Gandhi, we might want to start today.
Yara: Oh boy… I’m a big dreamer so I wouldn’t even know where to start! Starting a family (hi chubby future kids) with someone awesome, creating a stationary product line, living abroad, getting fit and feeling energetic, visit Japan. And I just overcame my fear of heights by taking a hot air balloon trip. Crying and laughing at the same time but I DID IT. Mind over matter, people!
Alice: Whilst studying journalism, I figured out I would be that type of girl who will end up single until my mid-thirties. It sounds sad, but I wasn’t. I enjoyed my forever single life very much. I was able to invest a lot of time in friendships and traveling. I dreamt of going to South America and travel around for nine months exactly. Something like a pregnancy, but different (I’m aware this sounds pretty weird). I ended up meeting the love of my life who loves traveling as much as I do (and I’m not even thirty yet?!). I would still love to go to South America, but not alone. The nine-month plan isn’t realistic anymore as we both have busy jobs, I’m afraid.
Emma: To live in a city abroad I guess. All my friends are traveling around the world right now, which sounds completely awesome, but I think I would be happier to live in another (European) city for a while. Being in a new environment, and work from there (photographing city guides would be my biggest dream) It’s weird.. when I’m writing this it feels so simple and above all so possible. I realize now how quickly I found a good job after I finishing my study and I wanted to completely focus on that first, but what if I can bring my photography job? What’s stopping me?
Like these dilemmas on Friday? Well… we’ve answered a lot of them in the last couple of moths. You can find them here!
