The other day, Jordan Ferney posted a sweet little reminder/advice on how to have the life we really want and it totally made my day! She said:
‘I wanted to buy a Fiat 500 for almost 10 years. Every time I would consider it, I would worry it would need a lot of upkeep or it would be too impractical. Finally after 10 years I put a low bid on eBay and I won! The funny thing is all my fears were actually true (I'm BFFs with my mechanic!). But what I didn't realize is HOW happy it makes me. I almost always have a grin on my face when I drive it. It's impossible not to. Everyone waves at me and laughs everywhere I go. The thing that kills me is, I spent 10 years not letting myself be happy. That realization has been really important to me. If you want to travel or buy a Vespa or dye your hair pink, figure out a way to do it. Life is short and we don't have any time to prevent ourselves from having the life we really want.’
It’s true that we tend to make billion and one little excuses why we can’t do something or get something or go somewhere, but in reality pretty much everything is achievable one way or another.
So, in the spirit of Jordan spreading happiness and making people daydream, what's one thing you really want? (I’m joining in the fun, so you can see my answer in the comments section). xo
P.P.S: The mayonnaise jar and a little life lesson on embracing yourself.
