Our life is no dream; but it ought to become one, and perhaps will. — Novalis
Thanks for joining me!
I decided to start this blog to document my attempt to take charge of my life and achieve my dreams. How will I take charge of my life? How will it be different than before? Well, I am about to embark on some crazy, terrifying, challenging adventures to push myself out of my comfort zone. I invite anyone reading this to join me in this journey!
So why am I embarking on this challenging adventure anyways?
A year and a half ago, I found myself looking into my future and becoming depressed by what I saw. I did not love myself or the place I was in and I was struggling with so many difficulties. I had chopped of my hair which was a surprising blow to my self-confidence, broke out in the worst acne case I had ever had (which demolished the rest of my self-confidence), had family difficulties which threw me into depression, took a class that forced me to figure out the finer details of my future (and it did not look bright), and struggled with self-hate and jealousy (honesty at its finest). It was not until I took a crazy leap of faith and went on a mission’s trip to Japan that God reminded me the importance of dreaming. Dreaming helps us have hope for the future, and boy, do we need hope. God showed me that I can change and, with His help, I can chase after the dreams He placed in my heart.
I am in the process of getting my visa to teach English in South Korea, which has been a dream of mine since I was thirteen years old. It has been deep in my heart for so long, but I never thought I was brave or bold enough to actually pursue what to me was a crazy dream. Yet, here I am preparing to go in August! So, I am writing this blog in hope that it will encourage others to take charge of their lives and to achieve their own dreams. However, I do not wish to pretend to know all the answers. I’m learning too, so I would like to invite anyone to take up this challenge with me and maybe we can grow together.
Are you up for the challenge?
