I wrote awhile ago about how badly I want to take some time off after my military contract is up in 3 years and travel. I want to take at least 6 months off but an entire year would definitely be the dream! I’ve mentioned this idea to a few people, some people totally support the idea and some people think there’s no possible way. Some days this travel adventure is all I can think about! Now, I also have another dream manifesting in my mind. I want to be my own boss, make my own hours, work based on my own schedule, ect. I want to create and build this impeccable life for myself. The problem is, I have absolutely no idea how to do that. I don’t know what steps I need to take in order to make that dream a reality. All I know is I have this incredible dream and I have 3 years to make it happen.
I read a caption on Instagram today from a fitness page, Samantha aka @shortgirlfitness, that said, “The best leap of faith I’ve ever taken was on myself.” And that really hit home for me. It struck a chord in me that I didn’t even know was there.
I sometimes have a habit of playing it safe. Taking the easy route to make sure I end up okay. Which is a fear I have sitting in the back of my head, I know I want to travel and support myself on my own I’m just not sure how to get there. What steps need to be taken to make that dream come true. Sometimes I let my fear cheat me out of something that could be really magnificent and I don’t want to do that with these dreams. I don’t want to do that with my life. So I’m going to take a leap of faith on myself. And hope it’s the best leap of faith I ever take.
I’m going to brainstorm and research and dig down deep. I will figure it out. I will make my dreams become my reality. I will take a leap of faith.
And yes, I will keep you updated on the journey along the way!
