Should you follow your dreams?

Recently I shared my wish/life list with some members of my family which was mostly met with laughter and comments of me needing to win the lottery, but it left me thinking – should you follow your dreams? I like this quote by Joe Vitale — ‘A goal should scare you a little, and excite you a lot.’ Most of us are told at a young age to always follow our dreams but as we get older and things like bills and other responsibilities start to occur it seems to be more difficult to realise your dreams. Also dreams change. […]

Lifestyle Goals For 2012

So the usual then, lol… Doesn’t everyone over indulge at Christmas though?

Blogging Goals For 2011

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great Christmas and Santa brought you some lovely presents. I spent this Christmas and New Year relaxing at home with my family. We even had an extended Christmas break from work which was lovely, and something I’ve not been able to do since college. But things have certainly been very busy since going back to work, in fact, this month has simply flown by. I very nearly missed posting my blogging goals for this year (2011)! But before I tell you all about my 2011 blogging goals with you, I wanted to […]
