Dreaming has always been a big part of me. I remember my mom telling me “Aurelie, stop dreaming!”
Even when I was older, like in my 20s, she’s kept telling me I needed to stop dreaming.
But I wouldn’t, I didn’t want to. Ever. And I never did.
I had many dreams, like playing soccer in the big league, meet my favourite singer, work in the movie industry, etc.
The biggest dream I ever had was living in L.A. for at least a year.
But those weren’t only dreams. I was determined to make them happen!
But how the heck a 15 year old from a small town in Belgium was supposed to make it and be able to go live on the other side of earth?
Well, as it happened, I did it, I found a way.
I worked my butt of, saved every euro I could and offered myself a year in the city of Angels.
Here is a small picture with some of the places I’ve seen :
Now, years later, of all the dreams I ever had when I was a kid, there’s only one left to accomplish: writing a book.
It makes me happy and sad at the same time.
Happy because it means I made nearly all my dreams have come true.
Sad because I’m wondering “what now”?
And I really want to make that one happen now.
But I also have new dreams:
- transforming my body into an athletic physique,
- helping people make their dreams come true,
- help kids find their way,
- help other women feel better in their body,
- be a fitness model,
- live in a place where it’s sunny 10 months per year.
But all those won’t matter as much if I don’t bring myself to write my book.
That story has been lying inside of me for the past 14-15 years, and I never took the time to explore it, let alone put it on paper.
I wanna do that now.
What are YOUR dreams ?
What are the ones you made come true ?
What are the ones you”‘ve been chasing for a while ?
What’s your next dream to make happen ?
Don’t ever stop dreaming.
Those dreams are like fuel for your car.
Without them, you won’t go anywhere.
And most importantly : never stop chasing your dreams.
