Vlog 3: Drone Practice, Rainy Days, And Trouble With A Passion For Hiking


 

It’s vlog #3!
 

Footage was a little harder to come by for the first half of this month, because the spring weather has been awfully grey and wet! But never fear, I managed a few spectacular pictures and videos later on, and they’re all featured in the vlog.
 
 

A passion for hiking

 

As a multipassionate, I love many different things, and what some of you might not know is that I have a passion for hiking. Currently I’m a little physically challenged, as you’ll see in the video. I went to a breathtaking place and paid a bit of a price for it. But, see for yourself!

Vlog 2: Looking For A House In Croatia


 

A House In Croatia

 

The second vlog episode is here! This time I’ve got big news, so there’s a lot of excitement (as the title states, it follows me as I’m looking for a house in Croatia).
 

Just like last time, there’s also beautiful footage of Croatian scenery, both in video clips and individual photos. And since it’s Easter, I also introduce you to an Easter specialty Croatians love.
 

I won’t write any more in this summary, because it’s difficult to tease the content any further without actually giving it away. Just go and watch it already, either above or on YouTube!

You’ve Found Your Passion – Now What?


 

Abstract:
 

Many people come to me because they haven’t found their passion or aren’t sure which of their many interests to pursue. Others however, know exactly what lights them up, but that’s where it stops. What’s next?
 

Your mission today is to learn how to know how you should honour your passion.

Task 1: The big question: Hobby or income?

 

I talk about this a lot, so I’ll keep it brief here: Please don’t feel as though you “should” make your passion your income. You don’t have to be a pro to make it your priority.
 

Our society values material success and money. Obviously, it also tells you that in order for a passion to be important, it needs to be your income or business.
 

I say, joy and love are why you’re on this planet, not material success. So if your passion lights you up, that’s your reason to make it a priority. Whether you want to make it your income, is secondary.

Task 2: You’ve found your passion – now nourish it

 

Passions are much like being in love. At the beginning, you pour your all into it, you can’t wait to get there every day and it makes you outrageously happy. Over time, there might be days when you don’t feel like picking it up at all, and it can become annoyingly difficult.
 

Just like a good relationship, a passion deserves the effort it takes to make it work. Once the “first flush” is over, establish a routine – set times and also a budget dedicated to your passion. Don’t make your passion fight for your attention with everything else in your life. Instead, prepare a space it’ll occupy, whether you feel like it that day or not.
 

Reach out to others who share your passion. There’s nothing more inspiring! If you do make money with your passion, protect that playful space where you just fool around enjoying yourself. Don’t ever let your passion become a painful chore.

Are Your Dreams Really Your Own?


 

Abstract:
 

A major value in our modern society is individualism. Almost everyone will proudly proclaim that they’re their own person, free and independent of other people’s opinions.
 

This narrative is so central to our culture that it’s hard for us to recognise and acknowledge to what extent we really are influenced by others. Your mission today is to find out what your dreams are like without anybody else’s influence.

Task 1: Examine your dreams

 

To do this, you must first of all come to terms with the fact that yes, you are a product of the society you grew up in. Realise this isn’t a bad thing; humans need other humans to survive and thrive.
 

Acknowledge this and realise which part of your dreams and goals may be influenced by society. This is not to eliminate them! It’s simply important to have clarity about the origins of what you wish for.
 

Some examples of society’s norms and the goals based on them are:

  • Loving one’s family above everything else.
  • Finding your passion and making it your living.
  • Getting married and having kids.
  • Advancing in your job.
  • Material possessions such as a house, car etc.

Task 2: Navigate the unfamiliar

 

Again, wanting these things isn’t a bad thing, nor does it make you uncool. To a certain extent, it’s part of being human. We’re social beings and much as our upbringing contradicts it, we do depend on the group to survive.
 

Rather, once you realise you really do want something, it becomes unimportant whether anyone else wants it or not. You become sure of yourself. You feel calm, centered, purposeful.
 

Finding your true dreams can feel very unfamiliar at first, so be patient with yourself! Here are a few questions you might ask to identify them:

  • If money was no object and everyone I love was perfectly taken care of, what would I do every day?
  • Where would I live?
  • Who would I live with, if anyone?
  • What passion(s) would I pursue?
  • How would I contribute to society?

The answers give you clues on what truly meaningful goals might look like for you.

A Beautiful 2021 (Part 2/2)


 

Abstract:
 

In Part 1 two weeks ago, we reviewed and let go of the previous year. There was a lot to do, as it’s been such a weird and challenging year in many ways. Now it’s time to set ourselves up for 2021.
 

Especially if you struggled in 2020, it’s not enough to just say “good riddance” because unprocessed feelings have a habit of coming to haunt us. May sure you have closed off 2020 before you get ready for the next year.
 

Your mission today is to set yourself up for a beautiful 2021.

Task 1: What success means to you

 

I said in the last episode that achievement isn’t just worldly or financial success. Getting through challenging times or battling issues is an achievment, too. We all have different challenges in life, which is why it’s imporant for you to define what success means to you.
 

Material success isn’t a bad thing, by the way. Receiving lots of abundance is beautiful! What I’m saying is, it isn’t the only kind of success we should acknowledge.
 

With a view to 2021, take a piece of paper and write down what success you wish to have. If it is “only” recovery health-wise or financially, or mentally, then that’s absolutely fine. Nobody gets to judge this.

Task 2: A beautiful 2021

 

Now it’s time to get down to business. Write down everything you wish to do and achieve this year. Make it concrete: don’t write “more money” but instead a specific amount you wish to make.
 

Then write down the first steps you need to take. You don’t have to plan out the whole thing, just focus on the first steps. If you’re struggling with your mental health, write down your coping strategies and support system. Make sure to create enough room for it. If you strive for material success, write down what you need to do first to make it happen.
 

Lastly, plan and schedule when you’ll take the very first step towards your goals. Put it in your calendar and get started.
