So this is in response to the Daily Prompt’s post the other day.. Dream. https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/fairytale/
Dreams are what everyone has, but noone’s is ever the same. Personally I feel that dreams are some of the most personal things that a person has, as it tells so much of who you are as a person and what you aspire to be.
I’m a firm believer in going after your dreams. That’s all people say I do, that I have many big dreams and that they change daily.. My ideas change daily, never my dreams! I do have a lot of them.. Some are very long term, ultimate dreams.. Others are just day to day dreams, some are just to help me escape reality and my own headspace at times. My biggest dream of all is to see as much of the world as I can and to not have any regrets. I know it sounds cliche but that’s all I want at the minute, I know as I grow and find out more about myself then these dreams will grow and change too but for now I’d be happy with this.
I guess I’ve set this in motion and why I’ve started this blog.. For a while now I have dreamt of going to and working in Canada as I think it’s an amazing country and I’ve heard so many incredible things about it. I managed to have my visa to go about 18 months back, however due to an ankle operation, I had to abort that plan. It all worked out in the end, it enabled me to work on the Sports Presentation team at The Rugby World Cup which was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. That Canadian dream was always in the back of my head though. I had a lot of people say to me ‘I knew you wouldn’t go, it was just another pipeline dream for you Georgia’, which was disheartening.. I then managed to get my visa again, it’s a two year one, after a tense waiting game for that invite and I started booking my flight, looking into jobs etc.. It’s all starting to feel real! On September 13th (luckily not on a Friday!) I am on a one way flight to Canada (via a short break in Iceland)! Safe to say, the doubters are shocked that I’m actually going-but that spurs me on to make sure I go and make the most of it! I am so unbelievably excited that I finally get the chance to live out my dream and immerse myself into a completely new life. I’m going so far out of my comfort zone which of course scares me a lot but then I just think of how much fun it’s going to be and how much I’m going to find out about myself and I stop panicking and just embrace the fear.
There are two different types of people in this world, the ones that go out and make those dreams a reality and the ones who go oh it’s only a dream, I could never do that. As one of my biggest idols, Audrey Hepburn once said.. ‘Nothing is impossible. The word itself says I’m Possible.’
