DARE TO DREAM
KIKKI.K FOUNDER KRISTINA KARLSSON BELIEVES IN THE POWER OF DREAMING TO CREATE A LIFE FILLED WITH ADVENTURE
Something magical happens when you dream, and something even more powerful happens when you write your dreams down on paper.
It brings the intangible within reach, the unclear into the spotlight… it’s a life-changing process.
But few of us enter adulthood embracing the power of dreaming.
Even fewer venture past merely wishing and hoping into purposefully pursuing our dreams. Instead, many of us drift or race through our days, settling for the ordinary or just trying to survive, when we could be seizing the opportunity of each precious new day to create and live our dream lives.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a restless desire to live an amazing life – to travel the world, meet inspiring people, experience wonderful things, learn and do something meaningful with this one life I’ve been given.
These big dreams were a world away from my upbringing on a little farm in country Sweden but, after a wildly thrilling ride, I now find myself living what to me is my dream life.
So… what does it mean to live your dream life?
Let’s get one thing straight; it isn’t about aiming for a fairytale or a perfect fantasy. Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful. It throws so many ups and downs and surprises, and our lives will always be influenced by events outside our control.
Your dream life – whatever that means for you – is a life you love, consciously designed by you, for you.
Most importantly, it’s about connecting with your unique potential, taking time out to imagine how you want your future to be for you and your loved ones, and then creating it.
