Mid-week inspiration.

So recently i have become a bit of a dreamer and i had planned a little post about "if being a dreamer is a bad thing" It was all about what if you never chase your dream? But i decided that it kind of read like an apology post and it was 2 am and after reading Elizabeth's wonderful adventures in the Brave, It made me realize how important it is in this day and age to be a dreamer or more importantly to follow your dream. I felt so inspired by her post and her journey that i wrote 40 pages of my future plans (at 2am till 4am and i had to be up at 6am hehe), my dream as a child was always to go to art school, that is all i focused on from the age of about 10 (being a person who is afraid of failure) i feel that when i reached this goal and went to art college,  but at this moment in time feel like i am drifting through my ideas and list and never really hitting my targets.
So i have decided to make a little promise to myself, that i will aim high, probably higher then i will ever reach but thats what dreaming is about isn't it?
It does sound like i am talking in a riddle, but if you are a follower twitter, i tweeted this morning about how my next plan is to combine my love of traveling with my hope. no passion! for having my little shop, i want to mix the both and have a traveling vintage shop inside a little camper van. I haven't totally thought this idea through, it hit me in a wave of excitement, but you see the only thing that is stopping me (and its quite large) is the fact i don't yet hold a full license. So i have promised myself to have this all sorted and up and running by next summer. This is my dream, i have been afraid to talk about it for fear i wouldn't reach the goals or my target. But i have come to the conclusion if other people can live their dreams what is stopping me...and the true answer is nothing.

  1. I've always wanted a sweet vintage VW camper van! And don't worry, if I can get my driving license, anyone can! Like you said, there's nothing stopping you from achieving what you want!

    p.s. where do you buy your polaroid film from?

  3. Excellent idea. I'm really pleased you are finding the courage to work out what you are aspirations are and then going for it.

    I felt a similar way on Sunday and ended up writing a similar post on my blog, which I'll link to reference, not spammy purposes.

    I've found that putting it out there with friends or on the blog helps motivate me more to achieve these goals because I become more accountable.

    I hope you enjoy your journey to achieving your dreams (I too need to learn to drive and desperately want a campervan)
