I chose this design to show you today because it fitted in nicely with today's post- Wishing On A Star. I read two very moving posts yesterday, both different but both reminded me of one very clear message- go and follow you dreams! Most of us have certain wishes and dreams which we would love to see come true but somehow aspects of our lives always seem to get in the way. Most of the time I would say money, time and confidence are our biggest enemies- I had these exact issues myself. I felt like I never had the time to be creative outside of work and thought that leaving my job was never going to happen because I needed to pay bills.....................and eat!  But these two posts reminded me that life is just too short- don't put off following your dreams until next week because "next week" turns into two weeks, which turns into three weeks and so on. Why not start an action plan today? Right now! Write down a list of all the things you need to do to achieve your goal- if you need to save money in order to get there start saving now- even if it's just a few pounds a month- it doesn't matter how small the steps are that your taking it's the fact that you are now taking steps (even if they are baby ones!). Just move at a pace you feel comfortable with. The closer you get to your goal the more momentum you will pick up and the closer you get the better it will feel! As soon as I started working for myself I realised unequivocally that I was on the right path for me. Sure there are always going to be lows with the highs but it makes me feel so incredibly happy that I am now, finally, living the life I intended. All I can say is I wish I had followed my gut instincts years ago- you know the voice in your head that doesn't care how much money you earn or how much spare time you have! Truth is, there's never going to be a perfect time for you to start following your dreams. The perfect time- is right now.
