Blog #5 – Goal Reached! & A Tropical Treat!
March 13, 2017.A Monday.
Ever since I was about 17 years old, a dream of mine has been to write and publish a book. Which is a bit contradictory since I actually had a hard time learning how to read. And it wasn’t until recently that I learned that this had to do with ADD, which means that I have a difficulty concentrating for more than a short while because of low levels of dopamine (which I’ve now fixed, thank you Google!).
But for some reason – and despite me not really reading – I developed this love of words and puns and language and of the subtle nuances of human communication.
And for some reason, the dream of writing a book stayed with me.
And today, I am proud to say that I have written everything that will go into my first book! As well as having designed the cover. Only work left is a bit of editing and the actual publishing. Also, it’s not a novel but something based on the content of the Instagram.
But it still feels pretty big!
“Whenever you are about to get to the next mini-level, close your eyes and cherish lifting your foot, because life is all about recognizing our accomplishments, however small a step they may be”
– Fredrik Eklund
So, with these words of Fredrik’s, I am now cherishing lifting my foot. And celebrating this accomplishment by treating myself to a tropical island and a nice hotel in the Gilis!
Last night I was doing some slow laps in the pool outside of the hotel. The sun had set. I switched to backstrokes and saw the stars, shining bright against the dark blue canvas of the universe. It was a powerful moment, yet serene. It was a moment when it felt like everything had fallen into place, and that life – my life – is beginning to become exactly what I want it to be.
Go for your dreams.
Swim with the stars.
And thank you for reading,
