What did you want to be when you were younger?
Personally, I wanted to be a big animal vet, then I realised I wouldn’t be able to handle the putting to sleep procedures.
I then wanted to be an FBI agent or a Spy, then realised there was probably a slim chance of that happening.
I also wanted to be an Olympian, but I never had the drive when I was younger, because I didn’t think I would stand a chance.
There have always been many things I’ve wanted to do in my life, but I’ve always felt like I wouldn’t succeed. Now that I’m older, I’m making it my first priority to always do what I’ve always dreamt of doing. I am officially putting myself first. (However after the London move, maybe I shouldn’t be!)
My biggest goal in life is to be successful, and I know that is what pretty much everyone wants from life. However, this has been my only ambition, for a very long time. Along with wanting to own a smallholding that allows me to look out my window each day and be able to see my horses. Plus a few sheep, goats, chickens, ducks etc. A mini farm essentially.
Now that I have also gotten over my fear of flying, I’d love to travel the world some more. One destination I’ve always wanted to go is Bora Bora or at least somewhere similar. I would just love to be at peace with nature for a little while, in a place with such beautiful views and scenery.
Then going back to my horses. Along with having my own place with them on site, their own stables and some riding facilities. I eventually would like to have more horses, of course, mine won’t live forever. So I would love to breed my main girl Alaska and get a mini her to join me in my adventure in life. Also, in an ideal world, I’d like to rescue animals and have a small rescue centre but I know dreams like that are often sought but never come true.
Over the past few months from finishing university to leaving home (for 3 days) and feeling useless with myself. I’ve started to change my outlook on life and realised as much as I’ve enjoyed making memories with friends, avoiding responsibilities and possibly drinking one too many, I am now a 21-year-old who completed all her education, holds a degree, moved away, moved back again and I’m not that party-mad student anymore. In fact, I just woke up one day and decided I didn’t want to feel like that anymore, so I changed, just like that.
All in all, say how you feel, leave the job you hate, find your passion, love with every ounce of your bones, stand up for the things that matter to you, don’t settle for anything less than what you want, don’t apologise for who you are.
