It might just happen. The flip side of the coin is just that, if you just live your life in a phase like there is no end to this life you are safe and hopefully not sorry. What I mean is that it’s a good thing to reconsider your dreams one time more before chasing after them.
We are living our dream now, this last Saturday we launched our boat in the lake for the first time this season. And by this we started to move aboard. It feels bitter sweet, to be honest.
I don’t mean to sound bitter or that I have second thoughts about this, I want to make that clear. What I do want to is to illustrate the duality of our lives, we chase after our goals like a mule chase the carrot and find ourselves standing there scratching our heads and wonder “what now” when we achieve them.
So we achieved our first of many goals, moving aboard. I’m glad that my husband been the doer during this last weeks, because I have been letting myself get affected by the “nej-Sayers” and scarcity with a lot of doubts and hard time letting go of the material things. But just as I said to my loved one; I know this will pass, and when all this is over I will feel relived.
Now that I’m typing this post in our saloon with a cup of tea, my husband beside me and my little son sleeping tight in the v-birth up front, I feel calm. I feel certainty and I have been given a numerous of signs the last week to ensure me that I’m in the right path. Ladybugs, butterfly and the 11:11am clock when I looked at the phone.
I need to remember these feelings of bitter sweetness for the future to come, so I can prepare myself for the emptiness of reaching a goal, and I need to remember that nothing is ever rock solid and goals set today can turn up totally different tomorrow. I’m so happy to get going and to see what the future have in mind for us next.
In two weeks we plan to pull up the anchor and go for some exploration of our beautiful lake Vänern. But first we have some clearance to do in the apartment before we can return the keys. If you want to follow our sailing adventure please visit my husbands and mine common blog Sailing Amie.
To wrap it up, think twice before you chase your dream it might be as you imagined but it might as well turn in a totally different direction than you wish for. If you’re having an open heart and mind you’ll be just fine, otherwise you may feel rather sorry and unsafe in the rocky road to freedom.
