Dreams and dedication are a powerful combination

The past few weeks and months have been non-stop. To the point where life was so busy I finally decided to stop making plans, at least for one weekend. I wanted a weekend that I could decide at the last minute to do something - or not. I think everyone needs a time out to recharge and I am not an exception. If I don't feel like I am in control of my life, I become really unhappy, so I always have to remind myself of the hobbies and interests I love and to never give those up. 

My interests in no particular order are; writing, business, marketing, fashion, art, photography, travel and food. I also love being outside so when the sun is shining I will never be indoors, unless I have to work. 

Aside from recharging the batteries after a couple of busy weeks, I also know where I get my energy from - and it's from people. Do you ever have those great conversations with new people you just met, or old friends catching up after a long time and come away with so much energy? Well, that is exactly what I thrive on. 

It's important to firstly understand what interests you and next understand how you can do that more often, and understand the things that give you energy. 

I am not an expert, but if I can give one piece of advice that would be to get to know "you". <insert laughing emoji> because that sounds a  little too deep but, once you find out what makes you tick, what gives your energy and what ultimately makes you happy - you can focus on doing that every single day. 

Does anyone remember the "wear sunscreen" song by Baz Luhrmann? 

 Aside from that one very important message to "wear sunscreen", this is one of my favourite parts. If you are constantly worrying about the future - don't! 

"Don't worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind."
