I am a strong believer in dreaming and pursuing your dreams. When I was only 7 years old I wished for a particular Barbie doll for a Christmas gift, and remember dreaming about it every day for about a month. Imagine my relief when I finally got it on Christmas eve! When I was in my teens I wished to move abroad to study, although I never believed my English to be strong enough for it, however, when the opportunity presented itself I went for it full heartedly and studied my way into University.
In my life I’ve had many dreams, some which I would cry to the whole Universe, other which I like to keep to myself. But I was always dreaming and planning how to make those dreams come true.
Dreaming gives me imagination and joy, but it also inspires me and powers me for when I am faced with problems or sadness. I remember a period in school, when I wasn’t particularly happy and I tended to dream through the classes without engaging to any of the teaching. This of course was not ideal, but when my mood was better I got back on track. Dreaming keeps me sane when I am depressed and helps me find my way to attain my goals.
For long now, I have dreamt of making a job out of my hobby and I finally have. I opened my very own shop on Etsy selling my illustrations! This is really scary and at the same time very exciting for me, however, I determine to stay excited as I have such big plans for my shop! I do not want reveal them all just now, but I promise to keep you the loop of what is happening. If you wish to see any more of my illustrations check the “shop” page of my website or go to my Etsy shop. Please also bear in mind that the colours do vary depending on the screen resolution.
Do you like dreaming? Do you have attained some big dream of yours?
