I’m sure this title confused some of you. Did it? If so, I’m sorry, because I’m not writing a book. At least not yet, since writing a book has always been one of my life goals.
In fact, I started writing one when I was about 7 or 8 years old already. It was supposed to be a rule-book for parents on how children think. At 19 I started writing a children’s adventure book about my own girl gang I had had as a teenie. Unfortunately I never got much further than 10 pages or so, but writing a book is still a big dream of mine. I now have new ideas on what to write about, but during the last year I learned that it’s not something I will do very soon. Unfortunately I just can’t do everything at once. I have to prioritise my goals, plan how to get to each one and then go step by step. And as much as I want to do it one day, writing a book isn’t priority number one right now.
Today I thought about my life goals and getting there. Did you hear me mentioning the topic on Snapchat earlier? A problem I have had for several years are my many life goals. Some of them are mentioned in my bucket list blogpost, but it’s way messier than it seems.
I want to study graphic design. I want to blog regularly, preferably in English, German and Finnish. I want to do Youtube. I want to have my own social media marketing business. I want to study in England, not just a summer course but properly. I want to experience college life in America. I want to perform in a musical. And in an advert, if possible. I want to paint again. I want to improve my photography. I want to illustrate books. I want to write books. I want to write articles for magazines. My area of expertise should be “living your dream life”. I want to start an organisation to help girls around the world to achieve their dreams.
But how do I achieve my own?
During the last few months I have realised that I need to go one step at a time in order to get there. I have lost quite some time after finishing school, trying to do a hundred things at once. That way I did nothing full heartedly and lost quite some time, that I wish I had spend to study or work on my goals. Now I have decided that I will first write my master’s thesis, at the same time blog and try myself out on Youtube, but not more. Only when I’m done with my studies, can I start working on another project. It’s hard to slow down, but I guess that’s the only way to go. And hopefully I’ll get to do live all my dreams at some point.
P.S.: As it’s so late now, I won’t post the #BLOGMAS day 13 post anymore now. Sorry! It will come up tomorrow morning, as part II to this! Stay tuned for more thoughts on life goals and the #BLOGMAS giveaway!
