We all talk about following our dreams, but few people actually do. Simply because we may be stuck in the life we have. The best advise I have, is maybe to take that big step early on, rather than later. I am following my dream, and while it’s not always easy, I do think that we have to sacrifice some parts of our life to be able to live our own dream.
Taking that big step to finally move out from your parents home, well I did that pretty early when I moved to Uppsala I guess, and already before that living in a small apartment close to my parents. But that step of moving to another country, I moved to England for 1 year. And then move across half the globe is way bigger and something you kind of not get a grip around until you are already there, already gone. It’s a 10 hour time difference to Sweden. It takes 4 hours on a plane to get to the nearest big city in the lower 48, Seattle. I live far far away from home. In the beginning it was hard, really hard. Another culture, another lifestyle. And then the darkness and the cold. It is not easy leaving home, but sometimes you have to in order to get to your goal, and fulfill your dream/s. I will never regret my decision though, because what I have experienced here is far more than I would ever be able to experience in Sweden.
And remember there is only one door to open if you want to live your dream, you just have to open the right one.
