This was a question I was asked to help me find my dreams: What five things would you do if you had unlimited time and money?
In a previous post I wrote about how I came up with my answers.
My answers are:
- Study every course I want to learn about.
- Travel to every place I want to go.
- Create everything I want to create.
- Support every charity and cause I believe in.
- Help people tick off the things on their lists.
These gave me five more questions:
- What do I want to learn about?
- Where do I want to go?
- What do I want to create?
- What do I believe in?
- How can I help people?
Here’s what I’ve come up with for 2016:
What do I want to learn about?
I’m a study freak. I want to learn about everything that I find fascinating, and I think most things are fascinating.
I would love to study courses for the rest of my life. I have an inkling about what I want to study next, but for now I’m going to take a break and focus on learning about me. I want to learn who I am, how to be me, and how to be okay with me.
In 2016, books will be my course material and authors will be my lecturers.
Where do I want to go?
At the moment I am exactly where I want to be. Last year I moved from Melbourne to a small country town in north Queensland. I love this place. It was made for me. I live next to amazing beaches and it’s always warm here. It’s like living in a dream.
This is where I need to be to go on my journey of finding myself – in a place I love, in a place that has my heart, in a place that is me.
What do I want to create?
I want to keep drawing. I want to write and publish a book by the end of 2016. I want to make my own bookmarks and journals. I want to make a colouring book and a calendar.
What do I believe in?
I believe in people being themselves and using what they have for others. I especially believe in being real and vulnerable about who we are, and sharing our stories that will give something good to others.
I want to connect with people through our vulnerability, and I want to give people a voice through my blog and my books.
How can I help people?
I can help people simply by sharing my drawings and my writings as I express myself and tell my truth. It might mean something to someone.
