It's okay to dream.
Who doesn't want to be successful? Who doesn't want to be in a position where you can treat yourself and your loved ones to whatever you fancy, whenever you fancy? Who doesn't want to work their butt off to create something that you're so, super proud of? I know I do.
I feel like there's a little bit of a taboo around admitting what you would really, really love your life to look like. All of those dreams that seem a little unreachable. Like wanting to live your life like Blair Waldorf; in a Penthouse on the Upper East Side, with access to all of the designers in the world and summers in Paris. Wouldn't that just be simply fabulous?
I told you, a girl can dream.
Okay, okay, I'll get a little more serious now. Having dreams doesn't mean that you're not grateful and thankful for what you already have. Every day, I sit in my little flat and I feel lucky. I feel lucky to have a fabulous job that I love. I feel lucky to have the best friends and family around me. I feel lucky to have my health and to be totally independent. Because I know that a lot of people don't have any of that, and I will be truly, forever grateful that I am in this position.
But I still want to push myself. I want to find out what I'm capable of and I want to achieve as much as possible and have something to show for my handwork. And that's totally okay. In fact, I think it's more than okay, it's ambition.
I'm not going to delve into exactly what I want my life to look like, because I think something like that is a little personal. But my dreams are going to be different to yours, of course they are. That doesn't make either of them any less achievable or 'wrong'.
But I think we should stop being afraid to admit exactly what it is that we want for fear of what others may think. Who cares what anyone else thinks? This is your life and you should live and dream it however you like it. Right?
