Remember, as Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav said, that things can go from the very worst to the very best… in just the blink of an eye.
After experiencing one of the worst things that can happen to someone – loosing several loved ones in a short period of time – the future is looking extremely bright for us all of a sudden. And it’s all because in a blink of an eye we realized that…
…someday is not a day of the week.
Someday will never come. Don’t choose someday to be the day your wishes will come true. No. Instead, set a real date. Make a real plan. Turn your wish into a goal. Just do it. Right now (after you read and liked this blog post). So did we. As en alternative of keeping on dreaming of that long-term trip, we decided to actually do it. This year. More detailed planning will follow the next few weeks. First steps are already taken. Like getting my manager used to the idea (you should have seen is face). There are lot’s of obstacles, yes. Obstacles aren’t deal breakers, though, no matter how huge they are.
Obstacles are just there to signify how bad you want something.
We really want this. The obstacles will not hold us back. I will make sure of that. We have to. To be honest, if we don’t do it as visioned for this year, our dream will without doubt turn into a nightmare. A nightmare about the fear of regrets when you’re dying.
Sorry. I can be dramatic sometimes. Obstacles. We will just take them into account and find a workaround. When you want something, you find a way. If you don’t, you find an excuse. We ran out of excuses to not feel uncomfortable. Because, while this is undeniably exciting , it makes us feel pretty uncomfortable, too. Nevertheless, getting uncomfortable once in a while is a good thing. It means that you stepped out of your comfort zone (yea, duhh). You can only grow as a person if you do so. Being uncomfortable means that you get an oportunity to grow!
Because I have plenty of time since this whole minimalism journey, I will for sure keep you posted on those plans. Tips and trick are welcome!
How are you making yourself uncomfortable to get what you’ve always dreamed of?
