After we start taking steps to achieving our dreams, we have to look deeper into ourselves.


Fill in the boxes to help keep you heading towards your dreams – wishes!


Take some time with this, but also do not leave things undecided and just remain undiscovered.

For me, wishes I’ve made is to be a successful business woman. I wish to help as many other people as I can. Inspire others.

Wishes I will make is to continue to learn and grow along my new path of life. Not be afraid of change, as change can be good.

Wishes I have not even admitted yet, are that I deserve to be happy and successful.

I struggle with admitting that I am happy or that I deserve happiness.

I get easily confused with my emotions sometimes that I tend to keep them bottled up inside. Thinking one day I will “get to them” and figure it out.

But it never happens.

I just keep going through my life…gaining new emotions that need to be figured out.

Admitting what I want in life is hard for me. As I feel like I am being selfish, or rude.  But I trying hard to take this #findingME series as my approach to facing my emotions and truly finding what I want with my life.

Now that I know I want more big things with my life and career, I am  learning to open up to happiness more….slowly.

I am taking these steps to help me get my wishes:

1. Taking online classes and studying when I can to further educate myself in areas that interest me. (web design, photography, health, fitness)

2. Doing this #findingME series is a BIG fear as I am learning to open up more.

3. Planning my future now so I can continue to enjoy life…to let go of worrying about the unknown.

I am learning to be open, to learn, and grow through every situation and circumstances. I am not always perfect at not letting things “get to me” or stressing too much. But overall have better sense of calmness. Doing more yoga helps too!

A note to leave today with – learn as we go, like a child. Be more spontaneous and natural. Stay alive. Do not become dull.  And remember to stop and see the beauty all around you!

  2. I am so grateful for this series. I am currently in a part of my life where I am also trying to find myself. I have been going through the motions for the past few years, holding on to a lot of pain from a bad relationship, in addition to my own confidence issues. This post is another perspective on how to sort through everything. Thank you 🙂

  6. I love this series so much. I have been working on learning to “like” things about myself. This quote from Jennifer Aniston has me wondering what I actually LOVE about myself. I want to truly have that relationship with myself.

    Keep up with the great series! 🙂
