Be careful what you wish for…

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.

Enjoy life!

A song about tearing down windmills and Don Quijote in the playlist on the computer and a week later I was strolling in one of the parks in the neighboring city, never have I noticed the two windmills standing there. One for the child’s play and the other like a monument from the past. 

It gave me goose bums, either my awareness of these little signs are higher than before (possible) or I attract more signs from the universe for me to be shown that I am exactly at the right place right here right now? I believe both to be true.

Anyway, we made up our minds and decided to cancel our rental agreement on the apartment, as I mentioned in the last post. WE DID IT, so from the end of May we will live on the boat. Feels amazing, totally frightening and like we are throwing ourselves out there for life to take us wherever we beed to be next.

So goodbye comfort and hello compact living, it is going to be a challenge but what doesn’t kill you makes you stonger. We will be just fine and we will learn so much from this. And the signs tells me we are doing the right thing, all small hints are pointing us in this direction.

So we are in a bot of a hurry to get all things together with the move, right now our boat is covered on land but we will start to work to get her ready for the season. And we have a home to be minimized and to sell, give away and throw all the stuff we don’t need.

This is where I put myself to the test of letting go, it is hard with some things and so easily done with others, I let it feel awkward and I look at the feeling and ask “is this important, and for what reason do gI hold on to this particular thing?” often it turns out to be for sentimental or conditioning reasons, not so often because I really want to keep it. And if I really want to keep it then it stays.

I have been wondering about my entrepreneurship lately and I am curious to become a content provider, (for those who wonder what that is this sums it up good below)I think it would suit me good, besides from blogging and affiliate marketing business I could help people write content on their blogs, social media and even translate texts. I will definitely look into it and learn more. Please, if you have any ideas where to learn more let me know in the comments or send me an email or message on Facebook.
