I know what you’re thinking – Lizzie, didn’t you already write this post last year? And, well, yes, I did, and it took a lot of back and forth in me deciding whether or not to publish this new post, but the truth is that those goals suited the person I was a year ago. I have since then whittled them down and have truly aligned with the person that I really want to be. The Lizzie that I picture in my dreams.
This goes hand-in-hand with my discovery of Manifestation (AKA Law of Attraction) and now I write down my goals as if they were already true. Gosh the positivity I felt writing this was contagious. I began to believe that I could achieve anything. I stopped rushing to achieve my goals because I knew that I would achieve them when I’m ready for it. I visited the Elan cafe in Knightsbridge when creating this post and the timing was almost perfect. I just knew I had to publish this!
And so… Here goes!
What does my dream life look like?
I am a gyaru mama + wonderful wife
I’ve always promised myself I would always be gyaru, and I want to carry that on even when I have children. I’d love to dress them up in the cutest clothes and can imagine coordinating our outfits so that we matched from time to time! I’d never be able to persuade my hubby to join in, though, but he’d still be my #instagramboyf and take all of our photos.
I am a senior graphic designer
I’ll only continue to move upwards in the design world, landing a role as a senior designer. There’s no limit to my enthusiasm to create amazing work! This will carry across to the work I do outside of work; I no longer will suffer from extreme bouts of art block (which often last for months on end) and my passion for hand-lettering will be reignited. Hell, my work would even be recognised amongst other hand-letterers, and I would love to be able to meet my inspirations Jessica Hische and Lauren Hom (and even collaborate with them)!
My passport is full of stamps
My problem wouldn’t be in choosing a place, but finding somewhere I haven’t been before! I’d overcome my fear of mosquitos and would be able to travel more often without falling ill every time. Our memory box will be bursting with postcards we’ve picked from all of the places we’ve visited.
My blog is a booming success in the gyaru (+ jfashion) world!
I would’ve built a loyal community readers and friends, and never again stay up late at night wondering if I was good enough. I’d be spreading the word about this amazing Japanese fashion and have so much fun doing it!
I am fluent in Chinese, French, and Japanese
I want to be fluent in Chinese, French and Japanese. Being able to speak multiple languages has always been a secret desire of mine and I used to want to be a translator when I was in secondary school. My life has taken a different path since, but my love for travelling and learning new languages is still there.
Gosh I can’t tell you how excited I am for the possibilities of an unknown future. Some of my goals there are going to be harder to read, especially when it comes to languages as my Chinese and French are awful and my Japanese is non-existent (apart from the phrases I pick up from anime).
