Whatstrend: there's no harm in dreaming, right?

Ph | Pinterest 

Have you seen the movie ‘Yes man!’? The one where Carl Allen, played by Jim Carrey, enrolls into a personal  development program and soon finds himself saying ‘YES’ to everything. Would you like to take guitar lessons? YES! Would you like to learn Korean? YES! Are we going to fight or what? YES! Would you like to increase the size of your…? …YES!

You now are probably wondering why I keep rambling on about this movie, who cares right? Well, what I was getting to is that it seems as if I am playing the role of Carl Allen, only then in my own life. In the past few weeks I have developed the extreme urge to say yes to every opportunity that crosses my path. I am not exactly sure what hit me, but I have the strong feeling that I just entered the ‘I-am-twenty-plus-and-want-to-achieve-many-things-in-life-so-let’s-cut-the-crap-and-go-for-it’  period of my life. And who blames me? I do have many dreams, so why not start chasing them?
Therefore, I am meeting a photographer this Friday to talk over a possible collaboration, I will rock my exams so I can wrap up this year and soon be done with school, I will try to set up an appointment with the editor of one of the Dutch magazines AND I am wholeheartedly saying yes to the potential of becoming a Whatstrend blogger.
I don’t have the ‘Never Stop Dreaming’ sentence tattooed on my right arm without reason. Dreaming big is something I believe everyone should do. This, combined with hard work and dedication will probably help you along the way of achieving your goals. Very important to remember: don’t forget to enjoy and smile your way through it! (I also forget the concept of smiling once in a while and believe me, it doesn’t make me look any prettier!)
As for now, I am going to put on my biggest smile, keep my fingers crossed and dream about writing up my first Whatstrend blogpost. There is no harm in dreaming, right?

P.S. Are you also dreaming of a collaboration with Whatstrend? Make sure to publish an article on your blog and share the link of your blogpost in a comment here (Note: this need to be done BEFORE tomorrow!)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this post. (And that movie. And pretty much everything Jim Carrey has ever been in). Also, I love your blog. I've never heard of Whatstrend (I'm SO behind on everything in the internet lands!), but it sounds like a cool writing opportunity. Anyway, found you on IFB and am totally following. Keep it up and good luck!
