Hi fellow Smilers!
I’ve been very busy lately chasing my dreams. It’s been tiring, frustrating at times but also great to be so focussed. There have been days where I’ve just done task after task and I’ve really learned how action can put an end to anxiety or worrying. If you’re worried about something, just get up and do something about it. Don’t let yourself be paralysed by fear; fear of failure, fear of what might happen, fear of the unknown. Chase your dreams relentlessly. If nothing else, you know you will have given it 100% so there is no room for regret or ‘if only I’d tried harder or done more…’ There is a huge amount of satisfaction in just knowing you did everything you could.
I recently applied for a scholarship to do a course that will drastically change my life. While I wait for the decision, I’m going on holiday. If I get accepted, great. If I don’t it gives me the time to pursue other dreams. That’s the beauty of having lots of dreams, if one doesn’t work out, you still have others to go for. Whilst on holiday I’m going to cross a few things off my bucket list (parasailing will be one!) and I’m going to unwind and relax.
I hope you all enjoy the next week, live it to the full and have at least one moment where you laugh uncontrollably. It might be worth doing what I do; if something really cracks you up, write it down in a book or notepad. I have a book full of things that have cracked me up and when I feel like I need a laugh I browse through it.
Till next time
