Today something magnificent happened: I changed my blog’s name!
This has been in the planning ever since last spring, which was a turning point in my life. That was when I decided to start putting my dreams into action. I had gone through a little crisis just before. I thought that I had “lost” the last five years of my life. I finished school in 2011 – and ever since I had just been trying different things, starting some and quitting again, just working out how I could live with my boyfriend and not concentrating on myself at all. Five years later, I was devastated: I hadn’t achieved anything after finishing school. I hadn’t lived any of my dreams. Hadn’t studies in England, hadn’t travelled, hadn’t been to America, hadn’t started YouTube, hadn’t done anything significant or changed people’s lives to better.
At the beginning of 2016 I then realised it’s not too late.
During the last year I finally started doing it: I started living my dreams. Step by step, first very slowly and very timidly. I have to admit that I was very scared, but: I travelled. I studied Graphic Design, and I did it in England (just for a month, but I did after all!). I appeared not in one, but in two magazines! There will still be a review of my 2016, promise! But I still have a long journey ahead of me. There are so so so many things in my life, that I still want to do, see, live and achieve! Some of them are mentioned in my bucket list blogpost.
And my new blog name is a reminder for myself. Every time I get stuck, every time I forget what my goals are, every day I sit on my wn at home… my blog name will remind me what I should be doing. I live my dream! I have to work towards my dreams! Day by day, step by step! And one day, I hope I will do my name fully justice. Live in England, work as a brand strategist in my own little company, write a book… and be fully, deeply satisfied with what I’m doing.
I love the new name so much. It just means so much more than just “Lottie’s Life”!
And whilst I’m on my journey, I hope my blog name reminds you of your goals too every time you come to my little online space. That it reminds you to finally get that stupid thesis done (like me), to finish that project at work, to put some money away, so you’ll be closer to your dream life soon. To start that YouTube channel or dance class in order to live your dreams. Because we can do it! Our dreams are just a few steps away – and we’re the only ones that can get us there!
PS.: Right now you can access my blog through two different domains: www.lottieslife.com and www.shelivesherdream.com – at some point I will switch off Lottie’s Life though, so better start using the new url now! 😉
