What I want to achieve

Hello.

So, university is now over and this means that I can now focus on my blog, youtube and me!

Whats this post about? I want to put out there my future hopes and dreams and stuff I want to achieve.

First of all, I want to be successful; whether this would be in my job, family life, youtube, I just want to be successful and prove to people you can do things.

I want to have the body of my dreams. I want to be healthy and finally look in the mirror and in pictures and be happy with what I see.

I want to learn. I want to educate myself, immerse myself with different cultures and knowledge. I want to be smart and knowledgeable.

I want to become vegetarian, maybe vegan. I want to become an activist for animals and the environment. I want to impact the world, by saving it.

I would like to become an actor, but lets be honest this is highly unlikely, but yet it’s still one of my hopes and dreams.

In the summer I want to stream games, with my sister. We have wanted to do this for a while.

I want to become the person I have always wanted to be. I want to change my habits and my life.

Read more, walk more, write more, draw more, smile more, volunteer more, just be more.

I have so many business ideas, from opening a production company, to build houses for the homeless, to opening a sanctuary for animals and even opening two clubs. I want to build an empire, a legacy.

I want to be good at what job I do. I don’t want to be lazy and unmotivated. I want to have a get up and go attitude.

I want to work hard, for my children. So they don’t have worry about their life.

I want to learn how to cook, garden, do karate. I just want to learn loads of skills!

I want to love, live and just make people happy.

I want to help people and better peoples lives as well.

This was just a post so that I could put out in the universe what I want. Tell me in the comments what your hopes and dreams for the future are. Write down what you want, and then you will be on the way to achieving what you want.

Love

#10 – Out of your comfort zone

University is very scary.

One moment you are at home, you have your family and friends, security and the next minute you are in a completely different place.

You have been plucked from a small village and now you have been thrown into a city thats 10 times as big as home.

You are immediately pushed out for your comfort zone. But I find that whenever you are pushed then that becomes your new comfort zone.

It is a great thing to make your comfort zone bigger. This means you grow as a person, and when you are 18 or even 34, starting a new chapter of your life, it is scary. It is scary to see how you will/might change, or if you will lose friends or gain them.

It is a very daunting chapter, but this is a chapter that everyone MUST read. We must get pushed out of our comfort zone, to become a better us.

When I first moved to Preston, into my new student flat, where I would live for the next 9 months, I was nervous. My mum and sister left, after having helped me unpack and I just sat on the chair, looking out of my window, around my room, just taking it in that this is my life now.

I will have to make friends, I will have to clean my room, do my laundry,  do a weekly shop so I can eat, manage my money, do my work. We are pushed into the deep end into literal adulthood.

That first night it was freshers. The flat decided to go out, after only knowing each other 5 hours. We went to one of the clubs, into a city where I didn’t know where I was, I didn’t know the taxi numbers, how far it would be to walk. It was a guessing game and a trust game. You are put into a position where you have to trust people you have only known for a few hours.

Eventually you trust these people, you get along with these people, you realise how easy it is to ‘survive’ essentially. You get to grips with how long it takes to walk to the uni buildings, town, you get to know the shortcuts and it becomes easier to immerse yourself into these new surroundings as home.

It changes you, this makes you adaptable, independent and these skills, what this experience will help you do is live in the future. If you have a job that requires you to move to a new place or country, you can say you have done this before and this gives you the self-belief that you can do what you want, you can achieve massive things. I think this is the boost that some people need to gain that self confidence that they lack.

Being pushed out of your comfort zone is probably one of the best things that can happen to you. When we stay inside our little bubble, we trap ourselves, we miss out on opportunities that could help define us, that could help us to become a better us. It’s poisonous, negative thinking that keeps us there. When we edge out of our comfort zone, even a little, that pushes the edge and our bubble becomes a little bigger.

This allows more air, light and positive thoughts in this bubble and anything that helps us think positive about ourselves is worth doing.

We have become a society that would rather trap and poison people with their own negative thoughts rather than helping each other just burst this negative bubble, or help them make it bigger so they don’t suffocate.

If you are scared to go to university, or do something that is so out of your comfort zone, just relax, breathe and know you can do this.

Kimmy Fasani, professional snowboarder, said once in a Try Guy video that;

“Adventure starts at the end of your comfort zone.”

This quote has stuck with me as it is a brilliant quote to incorporate into your life.

Chapter 1; I went vegetarian for a week…

I have recently wanted to have become vegetarian/vegan.

I care about the environment and animals, but I cant be an advocate for the environment and animals, if I eat them and use them for products daily.

I tried to go vegetarian for a week. I completed it. And I am proud that I completed it. It wasn’t that difficult, but in a way it was. I had to really think about the snacks I wanted and I couldn’t go for my normal everyday food as that was meat.

I substituted my everyday Tuesday brunch, from a sausage butty for a jacket potato and beans. I tried a new sandwich which was just hummus and sweetcorn, this was disgusting, so I just didn’t end up eating it.

This week taught me how easy it was to become vegetarian, and how much will power I actually had.

This was a surprise because I didn’t actually think that much willpower.

I am writing this to tell people that if you want to do something, or change your life it is easy to do so.

I believe in the future that I will become vegetarian/vegan. I will document this change blog style and vlog style.

This will be a very difficult transition, because I am a meat eater. I love how easy meat is to cook, buy and store. But I want to do this, I love animals and I respect the earth, so I am going to change my behaviour for the world and my future kids.

As well as this, I will try and limit my carbon foot print. I have seen lots of people trying to live a zero waste lifestyle and I will try this soon, it will be difficult as the city I live in doesn’t have shops that are zero waste so I will have to do some research.

One of my best friends has just recently done a dissertation on how plastic is killing the earth and she is now living a zero waste lifestyle, so I will message her and get some tips from her, so she can help me and maybe help some of you guys.

This is the beginning of a new chapter for me and maybe I will inspire you to live the life you want to live to.

All I know is that I want to change myself and my life for the better.

Yours truly,

Katy Nells xoxo
