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.
