A Daydreamer's Tale

I was sipping my tea (green tea with mint leaves - try it guys!!) and this post title just popped in my head, and for some reason, it stuck. Partially because it reminds me of a proper book title (Alice in Wonderland feels) and partially because well, I'm a complete daydreamer. I love that moment when you suddenly zone out and enter your own paralel universe, where 
 thoughts and ideas are entirely free. It's a moment I take to picture what I truly want of the future and what my goals are, but not just that, and here comes the secret to making magic: I think of all the possible ways I can achieve them. 




It's not as simple as it might sound but it's also not a black hole. Sometimes it can be really hard to actually pin point what are your short/long-term goals or where you see yourself in 5 years time, but sometimes it can be incredibly easy too. The best start point is to grab a pen and paper and make a list of all the things you'd like to do, it can be literally anything. If you're not too keen on lists, then I'd suggest trying to keep a diary and writing everyday so that you're able to slowly take notice of all the little things that make you happy and all the goals that start popping up.

Although for me it was a little different, I didn't need a list (but I did keep a diary) because I always had that one dream and I was always completely sure of it, which now may be relatively simple to say but back in the days it seemed like I had to cross an ocean on foot. I know you're curious now haha so I'll tell you what was/is my goal: to move back to London and study Medicine in the University of Cambridge. Yes, ambitious and tough, I know - but possible! It's crazy to think that only four months ago I never even thought the dream would leave my head, and now I'm sitting back home in London focusing on A levels to soon apply to Cambridge. 




I'm not going to say that bringing a dream to life is easy, it takes a lot of dedication, hard-work, motivation, time, and especially, passion. They're all connected. But that doesn't mean in any way that it isn't possible, because it is, all dreams are. Help is important too, and let's be honest, who doesn't need a helping hand or a kick-ass pep talk once in a while?! Don't be afraid to engage or ask your family and friends if you need to (thank you mum and dad!). 

So once you have your goals mapped out, trace all the steps you'd have to go through to accomplish them. As an example, if you want to meet a certain writer, find out when he will be in your country/city, get informed on what the event will be, save money/get a job if you need to, map out how you'll get there, etc. If something goes wrong, think of an alternative. Always have backup(s) and never give up. Want your dreams bad enough and go after them.

  1. You can do this! Plus, I totally agree with you. If you want something, go for it. I am in the exact same position as you. In one month, I'm going back to school for my last year in "cegep" aka grade 12 to focus on my university application. I want so badly to be accepted to one of the most prestigious business school in Canada, but I know it is going to take hard work.

    I wish you good luck and I cannot wait to hear more about your journey to get to your dream.
