Do you ever have dreams of making a living from your passion? I’m sure you do.
Well last night I’ve taken my first step to achieving my dream.
I’ve been feeling depressed lately so I think this little project will give me a nice distraction.
I don’t really want to reveal what my dream is at this moment. Why? First of all I’m a little afraid to announce something and then fail. Second of all, I’m worried people will laugh at my silly dreams.
I know those fears are not rational, but I am not such a bold person.
So what’s the point of reading this blog post, if I’m not going to say anything?
Well, just to allow me to share my excitement with you.
I started having this dream in my heart early this year. I was trying to answer the question: What would get me excited to wake up in the morning? How can I make a living while having fun at the same time?
From there, the dream was born. I shared this dream with Poey Chin and she was quite supportive (as she always is). She even threw in a few ideas.
The next thing I did was to lay out a ten year plan. How I would begin, what I would have to do to make it happen, and how I was going to get there.
The dream was put to rest for a few months while we were busy with Daryl, but I think now is a good time to start.
It’s not going to cost me a lot of money in the beginning, but as time goes on the costs will rise exponentially.
I have to admit it looks really daunting. There’s so many things I don’t know. Worst of all, there are things I will have to do I am not comfortable doing.
In this first step I’m still unsure. My legs are still trembling and I can’t stand steadily. I still need a hand to hold me.
But I’ll take it one step at a time. And I hope I get confidence along the way.
Wish me luck!
