Do something you love everyday!

 
 YOU MUST DO SOMETHING YOU LOVE EVERYDAY!!
 
This year we went back to a retail job, no it's not our dream, yeah sometimes we look at our watches counting down the minutes till we can get home, but you know what? We can deal with that. One, because the people we work with are lovely and two, because every time we are not there, we are doing something we love. Days off aren't all pool days and resting. Days off are filming, editing, writing, blogging, promoting, working out, dreaming and planning days. Heck, even when we have to go to work we squeeze in time to blog, plan or read. Our days are all about how we can reach our goals by doing the things that we love.

Here's the funny thing though, that we felt we had to share with you today. On one of these 'goal days' we realized something, and that is, it's not really about the goals, or more specifically the end result!! Now don't get us wrong, we're writers of To Do Lists and love nothing more than ticking completed tasks off our lists. We love reaching day to day goals and making plans on how to achieve our dreams. But some days it's so easy to get lost thinking about 'the plans,' 'the end result,' 'the finished product,' 'the day your bank account has six zeros.' that we forget that in the here and now, our reality is waking up each day doing the things that we love: the things that make our life a happy and exciting one. Yes we may not want to work in retail forever but that is such a small factor into the lives we are living. We wake up every morning excited to make our coffee, to publish a blog post or a YouTube video, that going to work for a few hours is okay. If anything it is a few hours where we get to see our friends and make new friends, so we can pay the bills. We would love for blogging and YouTube to be our sole source of income, but we used to think that we could only say I'm a YouTuber, a writer or a blogger if it was 100% our jobs. We used to dream that happiness would come when these ultimate goals were achieved. But this realization made us stop to appreciate how lucky we are to be chasing our dreams to begin with, how lucky we are to do the things we love on a daily basis. We are living the dream each and every day. We are writers every morning. We are Youtubers every time we film. We are bloggers with each post we share, and as the years go by we will be able to look back on all the fun things we got to do in order to film a YouTube video or how exciting it was to take pictures and research a topic for a blog post, as well as how awesome it was making so many new friends while we went after our goals. The saying 'It's the journey not the destination' couldn't be more appropriate right now.

So if you're stuck in a job you don't love or have been working tirelessly for years trying to make something happen, please remember:
Don't lose sight of your goals and dreams, but also don't forget to enjoy the ride.

Keep smiling and always dream big!
Love Lucy and Kelly xx

  2. This is a really nice post to read (as I just arrived home from a day of counting down the minutes at work), and sometimes it is hard to be positive but if you focus on enjoying the ride and doing something you love it really does make it easier! I always try to remind myself this and it's nice to read that other people have the same thoughts and feelings too :) xxx

    1. Hey Laura, Thank you for reading! We love finding people who share the same thoughts and feelings as us too, so it's nice to hear that you try and focus on this as well. We don't always find it easy but it definitely helps make the day go by in a happy way when we are thinking about blog posts or videos we want to make! :) Hope you have a lovely evening! xxx

    1. Aww thank you Steph. That is a fun way of looking at it. We think that too sometimes, even just looking in our scrapbooks is a reminder of how much fun we've had by following our dreams over the years.:) Aww that makes us happy. We are so lucky and thankful to have you as a friend too! One day we'll add travelling to see each other as a little dream to tick off our lists! :) xx
