MiniBlogs 10 - From Fantasy to Figureoutable

Updated: Oct 25, 2022

What do you want?


What do you really want?

When was the last time you asked yourself this?

Or asked of each other if you're in a couple.

What's the point of having lifestyle goals anyway, it's all I can do to get through the week?

"The trouble with not having a goal
is that you can spend your life running up and down the field
and never score." –Bill Copeland

Or how about the gentle option:

"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream." –C.S. Lewis

And my favourite bit of tough love:

"If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time." –Zig Ziglar

So I'll ask you again, what do you really want out of your life, out of now?

If you read miniblog 9 you'll see I already touched upon this, particularly in relation to manoeuvering away from a victim mentality - it affects the best of us sometimes don't you worry!

So back to goals, It's funny how life can bring us the things we really want albeit in a slightly wonky way.

I've thought on and off over the years I'd love a house in France. Never thought it would be possible, I could never afford it, never had a partner to support financially (you see, victim mentality)

My current boyfriend of 9 ½ years as it turned out felt the same about a place in France.

"Wouldn't it be amazing to have our own house in France" we'd say. "We can eat cheese, bread & drink wine every day and live a more relaxed lifestyle"

Getting slightly obsessed with A Place in the Sun we wanted it even more but never really discussed the practicalities. It was just a nice thing to dream about.

Then an opportunity arose during a random conversation sharing our dream with someone, to see someone's home they were thinking of selling...

It actually fell through HOWEVER it gave us the confidence to know that it was totally possible. It was figureoutable (Marie Forleo - have I told you about this book?

(It is fabulous click on the link below)

All the houses I had lined up to visit had either sold by the time we touched down on the tarmac or were just all wrong when we saw them in person. I believe:

The universe intervened - because we'd followed all the breadcrumbs, we were making room for what we had asked for - a house had fallen through hours beforehand would we like to see it?

And the rest is history. We can't believe our luck!

BUT we created our own luck and that is where wishing for and taking action have to be best friends.

Creating your life by design is yours to have too.

There are some terrible difficulties that people live with I know.

If you have limiting physical mobility, but want to travel the world, how CAN you do this?

There will be a way, it will just look a little different & need extra support but it's doable.

Being open to opportunities that come your way is so exciting but you have to hear them, you have to see them and you have to take them.

Every minute of every day goes by fast.

Sit still and imagine, the next 60 seconds and 60 minutes are yours with no interuptions.

What are you going to design, going to create, going to dream up?

It can feel like life happens to us, and sometimes it does.

But on the whole, the overarching life you have created thus far was built on your beliefs. Your actions.

Your decisions.

Are there plenty elements you love?

Are there any elements you don't?

So before another Christmas comes, and new years eve rolls into Jan 1st, have a think about how you want to design your life.

One thought, one feeling, one decision & one action at a time.

Read more here for some practical steps plus a link to a couple of short videos I love for inspiration.

Until next time

With love from
