Wednesday Wanderings (12)
I can’t move. An extremely tired dog is sleeping on my feet. And interrupting that would be a crime against cuteness. I sit on my bed with my computer on my lap, looking back on a few incredible busy (but offline) days and working on plans for the future.
As dreams and plans are today’s topic for #marchmeetthemaker, I already shared my approach to both: planning isn’t my strength so I dive head first into my dreams to get things done :-).
Life is short, and you never know how much time you have left to do all the things you’re wishing to discover, so why wait? Why look for excuses to not go after your dreams? (is it really easier to just keep dreaming?) Why let others rule your life? (they don’t care) Why wait for others support your dream? (they won’t). Most advice I got in life is to not go after things, not travel alone, not go studying again, not moving abroad, not having certain relationships, not…
I don’t live fearless but I live boldly. I try, make mistakes, fall, crawl back up. But I don’t have many regrets. Life can be tough sometimes, but at least it’s mine.

How do I get stuck in life? By slipping in slow :-D. I tend to forget I’m not driving a super truck with giant 4×4 tires- I wish I could now!
