My Top Three Dreams. – Day 18

The Prompt:

Dreams by Michael Rad

Abide in the simple and noble regions of thy life, obey thy heart. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Write down your top three dreams. Now write down what’s holding you back from them.

(Author: Michael Rad)


My top three dreams:

1. Inspire and put smiles on (millions of!) people who read my novels.

Nothing holds me back from this. I believe it takes time and persistence and I know I’m doing my best to achieve it. Whether it’ll be a reality or not, I will let it rest on God’s hands.

2. Travel around the world with my husband.

Money and time are probably what’s holding us back. We used to think we’ll do this only after we’ve achieved our first dreams but now we try to do it one chunk at a time. After all, we’ve been to our dream cities in Europe ;). As long as we could go places on each holidays, I’m happy :).

3. Be financially free and don’t need to worry about money anymore.

I’ve had this one for a long time. I just realized when writing this post that we didn’t put much effort to it anymore. I think we should think of a more concrete process to it, investing and elaborating what we meant by financially free or how much of an income we’d like to have each month to live comfortably.

PS: I know I’ve been missing a lot of days for the #Trust30 challenge but I will keep posting them in batches before June ends. I promise :).

      Haha… it’s okay kok :D.

      Hmm… I’d still need a city to live in, so far it’ll be Berlin. In a nice Berlin mitte apartment close to cafes and shops. When I need more peace and quiet, it’ll be in Tuscany. I love it because of the lovely landscape, the friendly people, and the food!
