30 Day Blogging Challenge – Day 15
Where Will You Be In Five Years:
What a question! Nobody knows for sure where they’ll be in five years, even if planned meticulously. Things change, people change and life sometimes hands us lemons. It’s a good thing that I have pinned soooo many pins on uses for lemons then, hey? Ha! Okay. Seriously now, we all need a plan for our future, a solid plan but a flexible one. If you know where you want to go, you’ll find a way to get there.
“She turned her cant’s into cans and her dreams into plans.”
A Few Things That Helped Guide Me:
- A dream journal. Get those big dreams out of your head and onto paper. This helps to organize thoughts and to formulate ideas. From thought to reality.
- A dream board. Get those dreams and ideas visualized. Our brains need to see the destination in order to work out a route for us to get there. This is why creating a dream board with images, put up somewhere you can see it, plays a vital part in the realization of said dreams.
- List your goals. Turn those dreams into plans. We all have to start somewhere, anywhere. When we have the bigger picture in front of us, it is easier to break our dreams up into goals. When we have goals with reachable deadlines and we take action, we get closer and closer to our dreams.
Nobody said that this would be easy, in fact, to get to your dream you’ll probably work harder than you ever have before. The best part is, your hard work will pay off and you’ll be living the life of your dreams.
There are so many things I want to do and achieve in the next five years:
Personally… In five years time, Mr. Fox and I live happily ever after in our own dream home and each drive the updated versions of our dream cars. We are well established in our dream careers, earn enough to live comfortably and more importantly, support the charities we feel passionate about. We are in great physical shape and help others with our knowledge of healthy nutrition through the use of great natural Aloe based products from our Forever Living Products business, Live Your Dream. Traveling has become a pass time for us! We have so much time to do fun stuff together, spoiling each other and Chloe, often.
The Frogging Fox has a huge tribe of lovely creative friends and has published a book or two or three with the many amazing patterns I’ve created. I have the resources to give back to the community and make a difference where we live.
My crochet classes are fully booked with a waiting list. A dedicated virtual team makes sure that everything runs smoothly in the online side of my business. I’m receiving many invitations to teach crochet, host workshops and spread the crochet & knitting love at well known shows and exhibitions. I my studio, I can create, host crochet & knit parties and teach workshops. Providing jobs in the yarn industry ensures that I have my own range of local sheep’s wool and mohair yarns. My yarn, hand spun and hand dyed with all natural dyes, is the talk of South Africa and the rest of the world.
Therefore, you better hold on to your hats because something amazing is busy happening!
Until we meet again.
